Professional statement

Noni is a native New Yorker who loves the ritual of the Sunday morning bagel and a long walk through Prospect Park. She grew up in a home of creatives and embraces her love for old movies & classical art.

Noni knew early on that she wanted to become a helping professional. At first, she decided to become a dietitian and guide people through their relationships with food. However, she took a positive psychology class in college and discovered the world of mental health. Noni was fascinated by the idea of creating safety for individuals who needed to feel a sense of belonging.

She received her BS in nutrition studies from New York University with a minor in child psychology. Noni recently obtained her masters in mental health counseling from Hunter College. She has experience working with adolescents, young women and men who live with eating disorders, anxiety and depression. Noni is a therapist who uses a feminist and multicultural framework to remind her clients of their inner power.

Noni is a registered nutritionist who practices intuitive eating. She uses her knowledge of physical health to understand how mental health shows up in the body. Noni uses food as a gateway into personal pleasure and incorporates this belief into her personal and professional lives.

Message to clients

Most of my clients identify as perfectionistic, anxious, depressed, or lonely. They can also be described as highly creative, an overachiever or a procrastinator, and an empath. They are usually the listener of the group or the family therapist. Since they feel so deeply, they tend to feel ashamed of their emotions and work towards conforming to societal standards of success.

I have experience working with young individuals who live with anxiety and perfectionism. I practice with a person-centered, creative and spiritual approach to guide my clients. Through art-making, mindfulness and tarot cards, we will explore your childhood & present relationships to help you to create stronger energetic boundaries.

I am imagining that you are a giver and a healer; it’s time you receive that in return. Let's chat over the phone and start to build our therapeutic relationship. I'm here to help.


Perfectionism - Coping with feelings of anxiety, stress, self-criticism, and procrastination; addressing unrealistic expectations of one’s self and negatively comparing self to others

Anxiety - Coping with excessive worry, nervousness, or stress; intense discomfort in social settings (social anxiety); sudden and intense feelings of panic (panic disorder)

Women's issues - Therapy tailored to common concerns among women; providing a safe and understanding space to address life challenges, stressors, and questions around identity as a woman
