I am a graduate of the four year clinical fellowship training program at Gestalt Associates for Psychotherapy. I see teens (15 yrs. +), adults, and older adults in my private psychotherapy practice. Most recently I completed training in EMDR with the Parnell Institute, an EMDRIA approved Institute.
In 2008 I earned my MSW from NYU. I have worked psychodynamically with all ages at Park Slope Center for Mental Health and the Family Service Clinic in Dix Hills, LI. Since 2007 I have designed and facilitated social skills groups for young adults with varied communication, learning and social difficulties at the JCC in Manhattan.
I received my MS.Ed in Early Adolescent Education from Bank Street College for Education in 2002. I have helped children and adolescents think critically about their worlds as an educator at The Museum of Modern Art and The Brooklyn Center for The Urban Environment.
My early background as a performance poet and dancer enable me to work well with artists, writers, musicians, and performers. I am especially interested in how our creative and physical selves, regardless of our professional selves, can help us gain insight and allow us to feel and express more authenticity.
