Professional statement

I love what I do. I LOVE it. I get excited about helping people make progress with whatever they need to work with.

I’ve lived in and around NYC my whole life - through 9/11 and now through this pandemic. If there’s one thing all of it has taught me, it’s how important is to cherish each moment and spend time with family & friends, and to appreciate the people we have around us.

My experiences along life’s journey have led me to this motto that guides my practice:

Supporting Your Courage To Live Your Truth.

That’s what I want to do - that’s why I get up in the morning. So I can support my clients and help them live the life they’ve longed for.

I believe counseling services are a very delicate balance and there must be a match between you and me.

You must feel you can trust me for us to work effectively together. I work hard to be approachable and non-judgmental. And, again, I love this work. I love being able to help you work through the challenges you’re facing.


Message to clients

At some point in everyone’s life, there are challenges. And right now, those challenges are pushing you to your breaking point. You know that something’s not right. You feel it deep inside. You know you’re not being the best version of yourself. You’re sick and tired of being a lesser version of what you know you can be.

What challenges are you facing?

Are you ready to start feeling whole and happy without your unhealthy attachment? Are you ready to do the hard work of changing your life for the better? And are you ready for professional guidance, help, and encouragement as you navigate the changes you’re taking place in your life?

I am here to help you, by Supporting Your Courage to Speak Your Truth.

I offer convenient, easy, online video therapy that you can do from the comfort of your own home or anywhere with a wi-fi connection. I strive to be easily approachable. I maintain a professional and judgment-free workspace to best serve you. I love what I do and want to see you progress!
