I am a licensed clinical social worker and have been working with adults, adolescents, children and families for over ten years. I earned my Masters degree in Social Work at New York University and hold a Bachelor of Arts in Hispanic Studies from Vassar College. I am trained in Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP), and am a Certified AEDP Therapist and Supervisor.
In addition to my general practice, I specialize in working with individuals struggling with eating, exercise, and body image problems. I was trained at the Center for the Study of Anorexia and Bulimia in New York City, where I also worked as a staff therapist. While my approach is primarily experiential and emotion-focused, I incorporate elements of behavioral therapies, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavior Therapy, into my work as needed.
Every therapist is different and it is important that you choose a therapist with whom you can connect. Sometimes it can be helpful to meet with multiple therapists in order to find someone whose style and personality are a good fit for you. If you would like to schedule a consultation to see how we work together, please give me a call or send me an email.
I look forward to hearing from you.
