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

As a therapist who identifies as a highly-sensitive person, I find therapy to one of the most freeing environments. Where else in your life are you able to be truly open and honest? Where else can you show up as who you fully are? Therefore, I dedicate our time together towards allowing you to deeply explore your identity as a human. I do not believe in assigning time-consuming homework or creating a rigid agenda for your treatment. You get to decide which direction each session will follow. If that makes you anxious, this might be a good time to learn how to make your own decisions. I'll be here to guide and support you every step of the way.

Let's chat over the phone and start to build our therapeutic relationship. I'm here to help.
