About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in both NYC and Florida. I am a NYC native who exchanged the beautiful skyline for a magnificent beach view. I have 8 years of experience and have ample exposure working with diverse populations. I also feel that I have been able to work with a wide array of clients and presenting issues and diagnoses.


I specialize in working with individuals (teens and adults) struggling with stress, anxiety, relationship issues, low self-esteem, depression, anger, self-harming behaviors, addictions and Trauma/PTSD. I most often rely upon Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solutions-Based Therapy, and Mindfulness to assist my clients in making progress toward their goal(s). 


With a great ability to build rapport and maintain regular interaction, I strongly believe that each of my clients make forward movement in the counseling process. I am aware that many clients are looking for ways to resolve or make improvements with some of the symptoms they are going through at the time; and I am passionate about helping clients find those solutions. 


Life can be so difficult sometimes, and often it helps to talk to someone other than a friend or family member to sort through predicaments. I can start with you right where you are and assist you in working through whatever problems you are currently facing, or with issues from the past that seem to continue to rattle your world.


My personal therapy/counseling style and approach is very conversational, empathic, non-judgmental, compassionate and individualized with a dash of humor when appropriate. I endeavor to establish a quick but strong rapport with each patient in order for trust and progress to be made. Realizing that you are open to the helping process is a huge step, so compliments to you. I look forward to working with you!


At this time I am currently seeing only private pay clients. Please keep in mind the no-show policy.
