As a clinician, the foundation of my work is based on developing a relationship, providing empathy, forming a pathway for open communication, and remaining non-judgmental while creating a safe and comfortable environment. Utilizing a culturally competent lens I understand that each client is unique and deserves the most effective treatment for his/her individual needs. By utilizing a trauma informed perspective I am dedicated to improving the quality of life for those seeking assistance.

I obtained my master’s degree in Social Work from Columbia University. I have experience providing individualized therapy to youth, adolescents and adults. I am certified by the State of New Jersey and New York as a Licensed Master Social Worker.

When I am not in the office, you will find me spending time with friends and family.
