    Extended Biography :

    I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) with extensive experience working with those who struggle with self-esteem, body image, eating disorders, addiction, self-injurious behaviors, suicidal ideation, peer group and family conflicts, and depression and anxiety.

    I also welcome couples or families who are seeking to restore harmony within their intimate relationship or family system. Here, my technique includes exploring and bringing to conscious awareness the relational-patterns and communication blockages that have endured over time, thereby paving the way for deeper and more meaningful relationships.

    I am trained in Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), ASSIST Suicide Intervention, Motivational Interviewing, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Feminist-Therapy, and Seeking Safety. I have sought out additional trainings geared towards providing services to specific sub-groups—such as the transgender, LGBTQ+, Domestic Violence, and Middle Eastern Communities—so to provide more culturally-sensitive treatment.

    In my practice, I use a holistic approach to psychotherapy, which allows me to weave several modalities into treatment, in an effort to attend to the whole-person. Throughout therapy, we will explore the connection between various emotional, physical, social, cultural, and spiritual dysfunctions, in order to promote recovery in these realms. My intention is always to maintain a safe, collaborative, and strength-based environment where new ideas can take the place of maladaptive thoughts and coping strategies that no longer serve you. With these tools, it is my hope that you will design a more fulfilling existence, find greater self-esteem, generate acceptance and feel a sense of agency over your life.
