My Story

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor with over 10 years of experience in which I provided counseling in residential, corporate, and private practice settings. Currently, I am in private practice in New York City (Manhattan) and also licensed in Georgia andNew Jersey. At this time, I am offering virtual sessions. My intention is to provide quality care and treatment in the therapeutic process.

I am an interactive therapist who utilizes a client-centered, multi-modal approach with a focus on individual development. In partnering with you in your journey towards healing, I embrace and support the cultural dimensions of each individual to foster strength, empowerment, and confidence. My therapeutic approach is to provide support and feedback in a safe environment to help clients effectively address personal life challenges. I integrate complementary methodologies and techniques to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each client. With compassion and nonjudgment, I work with each individual to help them build on their strengths to attain personal growth and wellness. I enjoy accompanying young adults, adults, and couples in their journey to more fulfilling experiences and relationships.

Upon extending me with an opportunity to accompany you in your journey towards wellness, you can expect support, guidance, and challenge as you cultivate positive changes to achieve your goals. Whether you are exploring your life’s purpose, or struggling to move past hurtful events, relationships, or social situations, let me support you in taking the first step.
