As a licensed psychotherapist and Reiki Master with an EMDR certification, I work with people who have lost their footing due to anxiety, depression, grief, trauma, divorce or breakup, chronic illness, compulsive and addictive behaviors, or interpersonal and relationship challenges. I currently have a private practice in White Plains, NY.
During therapy sessions, I weave EMDR, mindfulness, and self-compassion therapy into psychodynamically oriented talk therapy. I also offer Reiki energy healing sessions that integrate coaching and counseling throughout the healing process.
For as long as I can remember, I have gravitated towards all things related to psychology and spirituality. I attended Vassar College where I completed my B.A. in Psychology and then went on to get my Masters in Social Work at New York University. Between my graduate school internship experiences and the next several years spent at a small mental health agency practicing individual therapy and running groups, I have worked with people suffering from disorders and diagnoses all across the board, including depressive, mood and anxiety disorders, schizophrenia, addiction, codependency, and personality disorders.
In 2011, a painful divorce and not enough self care led to a severe case of burnout and required that I make some significant changes in my life. I took on a new hat and became Spa Director at Bronxville Wellness Sanctuary, a holistic day spa that focuses on healing the mind, body and spirit. I began delving into alternative and holistic forms of healing and wellness, including energy healing, breathwork, yoga, meditation, and crystals. I soon became a Reiki Master and began providing reiki to clients there - and continue to do so. I also completed yoga teacher training and more recently became certified in EMDR after experiencing the profound impact these both had in my own healing process.
This eventually led me to my current private practice in White Plains, where I offer private psychotherapy, EMDR and Reiki.
I openly welcome any issues you may come in with, and trust that each session will provide you with exactly what is needed. I truly believe I am here to serve and help others, and continue to follow my intuition to along that path.
