In my world, finding the rhythm to your own life is an absolute necessity.
Doing what other people do is overrated and not listening to your gut is a definite NO.
My approach is all about releasing perfectionism and helping you harness (and trust!) your intuition.
After graduating from Columbia University's School of Social Work, I received my post-graduate training at The Gestalt Center in New York City. Gestalt therapy emphasizes the mind-body connection versus traditional "talk-only" therapy. Gestalt therapy feels similar to yoga in that you'll honor the connection between your mind and body.
In addition to my professional credentials, I'm a Dog Mom, empath (super sensitive), introvert and I've taken risks in my own life that sometimes felt super scary, but always paid off in the end. I applied to grad school super last minute after finishing Teach for America (I taught second grade for two years) and I quit my job to start my own practice.
I'm originally from Southern California and moved to NYC over 13 years ago. I like to say I have a knack for helping sensitive people thrive (yes, we can thrive!) in a busy, urban setting even though it doesn't always feel easy. When I'm not spending time with my dog, I like to work with flower essences (seriously, this is fun for me), work-out (I love The Tracy Anderson method) and read all sorts of books (latest one is Expectation Hangover by Christine Hassler).
