I am a clinical fellow in a four year training program at Gestalt Associates for Psychotherapy and see early adolescents (10 yrs. +), teens, adults, and older adults in my private psychotherapy practice.
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.
I have taught in a NYC public school and a school for adolescents with learning disabilities and emotional challenges, and I have also home-schooled children whose families were experiencing special circumstances.
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.
