I was born and raised right here on Long Island, and have been living here most of my life. I am a die hard Mets and Jets fan (unfortunately), and while I understand there are much more important issues at hand right now, I can't pretend I don't miss sports. I'm also a huge Seinfeld and Curb fan and I may reference them a little too often in session. I tend to use a lot of metaphors in therapy and have a tendency to let the expletives fly from time to time. I have a pretty informal and relaxed style. This is not a job interview, so I want my clients to feel as free as possible to say exactly what is on their mind, even if it isn't "appropriate." We all have weird thoughts and sometimes these weird thoughts and inappropriate language gives us insight to how we are truly feeling inside.
I graduated from St. John's University with a Bachelor's in Psychology, and went on to complete my Master's of Social Work at Adelphi University here on Long Island. I have worked in a variety of different environments including an inpatient psychiatric unit, psychiatric ER, an outpatient mental health clinic for individuals with severe anand persistent mental illness, and private group practice. I opened this practice in February 2020. I specialize in working with young adults who are struggling with anxiety, depression and life transitions.
