I am a master’s level clinician and an advanced doctoral student in Clinical Psychology at Fordham University. I obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Clinical Psychology from Tufts University and a Master’s of Arts in Clinical Psychology from Fordham University.
My clinical expertise focuses on helping people practice emotional and cognitive flexibility in their life. Through this flexibility, my clients learn to limit their distress, improve their professional and social functioning, and increase their satisfaction in social, professional, and emotional domains. I have a diverse range of clinical experiences that includes working with children, adolescents, and adults from varying socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds. While I am especially skilled at working with individuals with executive functioning concerns (e.g., poor attention or organizational skills) and mood and anxiety disorders, I am able to help and work with any individual that has a desire for change and self-improvement.
My therapeutic approach combines aspects of cognitive behavioral therapy and dialectical behavior therapy strategies including mindfulness and understanding of the self through reflection and processing of formative life experiences. I operate from a strengths-based and person-centered approach where the client and I work together to identify goals, implement coping skills, and build insight and strategies to process and navigate their stressors.
I understand that the mental health industry can be a difficult space to navigate and that some of the terms listed above may not be readily understood by everyone. At our practice, we are committed to helping you understand the options that are available to you and will describe the process as openly and clearly as possible. Our top priority is your care!
