Professional statement

I am a LCSW presently only practicing in New York State. As a first generation child; I grew up trying to find my place in a culture outside of my own while also trying to develop my own personal identity outside of expectations. I have a strong passion for working with individuals looking to be their true authentic selves!

A bit about my approach to therapy

My Ideal client is someone who is looking to actively make changes in their lives; or even just begin expressing themselves. I welcome all individuals regards of their needs or goals as my personal objective is to support anyone and everyone accomplish their dreams. They're someone who likes to be a bit out of the box and is open to trying different things to see how we can resolve it together. Being a team player with open communication is key as I am looking to be your ultimate support!

What you can expect from our first session

I truly believe that with time, patience, and commitment things can be worked out. I tailor my sessions to each patient and what kind of support/treatment they are hoping for. I strive to make an open, safe, and judge mental free environment; we can't change anything from the past, but we can make active steps to change your future

Message to clients

Being someone who has struggled with mental health themselves, I entirely understand the need and importance of finding a therapist that you can be your true authentic self with. I take great pride in my humanistic approach that I have with patients; I am no textbook therapist. I will cry with you, laugh with you, even get mad with you! We are all human and I truly do my best to be my authentic self as well when it comes to work with my patients. I want all of my clientle to feel comfortable and safe whenever they're coming into session. No stressors with formalities or "proper etiquette"; if you gotta cry it out? go for it. Need to scream in a pillow? I'm here for it. Every person is unique and individual to your circumstances; so I hope to be able to create a great team dynamic to work and accomplish the goals that you are striving for (:
