I work to create a safe, non-judgmental space for adults and adolescents of all religions, races, sexualities, and genders to process their life needs, wants, and fears. I provide psychotherapy within the context of a therapeutic working alliance; by first building trust and safety in the therapeutic relationship, one can then work towards tackling larger life goals.

Services & Specialties

I work from a core belief that our minds and bodies are deeply connected. Treating the whole person, including the impact of stress on their physical body, is an important component to treating trauma, grief, anxiety, depression, and more. The stress that we carry can negatively impact our bodies, and past traumas can be stored in our bodies on a cellular level. I am extensively trained in several trauma-based modalities, including Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and Somatic Experiencing (SE).

Background

As a former high school English teacher working in a large public high school in New York City, I quickly learned that social/emotional barriers and past trauma often interfered with the education and basic life functioning of many of my students. I transitioned my work to the field of mental health, and from that point forward, I have dedicated my career and training to learning how to support folks who have been traumatized or who are struggling with social and emotional issues. My conceptualization of trauma includes acute stress following a major traumatic incident, as well as the daily trauma that oppressed groups endure on a regular basis due to racism, sexism, homophobia, xenophobia, and more. I strive to uphold the tenets of social justice in my clinical social work practice.

Words to Ponder

When we speak we are afraid our words will not be heard or welcomed. But when we are silent, we are still afraid. So it is better to speak.
— Audre Lorde
Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced.
— James Baldwin
I have come to the conclusion that human beings are born with an innate capacity to triumph over trauma. I believe not only that trauma is curable, but that the healing process can be a catalyst for profound awakening—a portal opening to emotional and genuine spiritual transformation.
— Peter Levine
The past affects the present even without our being aware of it.
— Francine Shapiro
