I am an NYU-trained psychotherapist who believes that there is no universal formula to doing therapy. My job is to understand you as an individual so that, together, we can identify the barriers that exist between where you are now and the most meaningful, fulfilling life you want to live. I bring warmth and joy to therapy, but I’m also not afraid to tackle painful or uncomfortable topics.
After receiving my Master’s degree in Music Therapy from NYU, I continued my education with post-graduate training at the Music Psychotherapy Institute of New York. While music can be a meaningful part of our work, I am first and foremost a therapist. Through my diverse experiences as a psychotherapist, I have developed an approach that incorporates traditional talk therapy, including very practical interventions like cognitive behavioral therapies, as well as humanistic, creative arts therapies, play therapy, and mindfulness practices. However, what we use together and how depends on you.
More valuable than any tool or technique, however, is the power of the therapeutic relationship itself. I believe that therapy is a creative and collaborative process. Effective collaboration requires patience, commitment, and above all, trust. I commit to engaging myself fully in the process of discovery and creation with my patients, and trust that each patient has the potential to create significant and lasting change.
