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.
Fantasizing about your dream life is absolutely reasonable.
Striving for bliss, connection and soulful discovery is a necessity.
But at the end of the day, feeling peaceful and putting forth the effort is all that really matters.
I want to be remembered as a person who helped people be more of who they are.
And who inspired others to take risks and listen to their guts, too.
I believe you have unlimited potential to create lasting change.
I believe in trusting your intuition.
I believe you can learn from your past while looking forward to the future.
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.
I'll support you in honoring all your feelings, while holding space for the life you want. Sessions may explore sadness, anxiety, grief, joy, or any other feelings we don't get to fully express in our busy daily lives. I don't believe in viewing ourselves as damaged or staying "stuck" in our story. I do believe in treating ourselves compassionately, honoring where we are and creating lasting change, whatever that means for you.
While I work with a range of people, my speciality is being a therapist, mentor and counselor to young women. Through a holistic approach, we'll tend to all aspects of your emotional, physical and spiritual health.
