Thank you for your interest...
I believe in a holistic and personalized approach to therapy that is tailored to best fit each individual. Using my empathy and clinical knowledge, I want to help each person by exploring their past, finding the strength to live in the present and teaching skills to approach life's challenges. I have worked with a diverse population for the past 8 years in a variety of settings including private practices, hospitals, community centers and schools (Pre-K through College). Please know that no matter what you are facing, I will never judge and am dedicated to providing a safe space for you to processes whatever you are facing.
I have a strong connection and passion for working with women who are facing infertility, are currently expecting, are adapting to a new life with their child or have experienced a loss at any stage. Bringing a child into this world can be joyful but it can also be very difficult time. I enjoy helping individuals navigate any aspects of current or future parenthood including trying to conceive, pregnancy, postnatal, losses or facing challenging decisions.
I have been fortunate to work in higher education for several years in a mental health role and really enjoy working with college students. Student face various obstacles and changes such as transitioning from high school to college, adapting to a college environment, exploring future careers and decision making in various situations. I provide a space to aid students in finding their path.
I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Northeastern University in Boston and Masters of Arts in Counseling for Mental Health and Wellness from New York University. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the states of Texas and Connecticut. I am also certified in EMDR (Trauma Therapy). EMDR can be utilized to address trauma, depression, anxiety, pre/postnatal issues and more. I have received training in Reproductive Trauma, Perinatal Mood Disorders, advanced EMDR practices, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing.
