I am a licensed master level social worker and therapist who has experience working with individuals and families in a variety of settings. I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree at the University of Toronto and my Master of Social Work degree at New York University’s Silver School of Social Work. I also have a law degree from Fordham University School of Law.
During my time in law school, I focused on public service and law related to women and families. I worked with asylum-seeking families at the border, as well as in the Community Economic Development Clinic, which assists small nonprofit start-ups and community groups. I received the Archibald R. Murray Public Service award for my pro bono and community work.
As a therapist, I have worked with clients to address various challenges, including those related to depression, anxiety, familial conflict, and grief and loss. I have trained and worked in numerous settings, including schools and an outpatient clinic. I completed my Clinical Externship at Ackerman Institute for the Family, and currently sit on Ackerman’s Board of Directors.
I work from a strengths-based and non-judgmental stance. I incorporate various modalities into treatment, including psychodynamic, systemic, and mindfulness models. My aim is to provide a safe space in which my clients can experience themselves as empowered and capable of navigating challenges and obstacles throughout their lives.
