I am a licensed clinical social worker and have experience working with adults, adolescents, children, couples, and families. My approach is eclectic—based on psychodynamic practices, deep empathy, Buddhist philosophy, mindfulness, and some cognitive-behavioral work.

I received a Masters in Social Work from Adelphi University and a B.A. in Writing and Poetics and Buddhist Studies from Naropa University. I have provided therapy to many different types of people, in many different settings—hospitals, schools, homeless shelters, nursing homes, mental health clinics, and in private practice.

I find much satisfaction in my work and have witnessed the amazing process—though sometimes painful or scary—of people uncovering the root cause of emotional suffering and connecting with a deeper sense of joy in their life. Therapy is about finding your most authentic self, and working with this in a practical and loving way.

I am also a yoga teacher and have taught yoga and meditation in New York City for over 10 years. This informs a lot of my work with people and I am always happy to discuss how yoga may compliment the work that that is done in psychotherapy.

One of the most important aspects of therapy is feeling comfortable with your therapist and having the sense that they get you. If you are interested in my practice, and would like to see if it's a good fit, email or call me for a free phone consultation. I can always refer you to another therapist or specialist, if need be.
