I am currently working towards my Masters Degree in Mental Health Counseling at Manhattan College.
Before returning to school, I worked at St. Vincent’s Hospital in their Evaluation & Referral Unit,
helping families and patients through the difficult process that can come with finding treatment. I also am an equestrian (Horseback riding) trainer and instructor. I am currently working towards my Equine Specialist in Mental Health and Learning (ESMHL) certification, and am a huge advocate for behavioral activation therapy.
Mental Health Counselor
Theory and Philosophy
Any person who is brave enough to take a step towards bettering themself deserves the opportunity to do so in a safe and judgment-free environment. Therapy is often a long journey, however as we know, the journey is what makes the destination worth discovering!
I plan to guide you through your journey of self-discovery, while simultaneously teaching you
how to be your own leader.
My most common practice includes cognitive
behavioral therapy, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, as well as play therapy. My goal is to help patients develop important emotion management skills, healthy coping mechanisms, and the ability to navigate stressful situations healthily and safely. I'd like to help you find empowerment through therapy by learning to understand yourself and the world around you a little more
after each session.
Each patient requires an individual experience, and many sociocultural and contextual factors can play a role in treatment. I plan to include these considerations in my
practice and ensure a safe and comfortable environment for people of all races,
ethnicities, and sexualities (LGBTQIIA+).
I promise to work with you to help you figure out what makes you your authentic self, and how we can preserve and apply that in our work together.
