LCSW, Clinical Supervisor
Ever since I can remember I have been fascinated with the way people think and operate in the world. When I turned 18 and went off to college, I realized that my curiosity could be fulfilled through the study of psychology. Additionally, I had a close relative that was a therapist with her own practice, and I thought it sounded like an incredible career path, both because of the content of the work, and also the unconventionality of the structure of hours/time that could allow me to have more freedom.
I received my Bachelors in Science from Northeastern University in 2014 and my Masters from NYU in 2016. Upon graduating, I began working at two separate clinics doing fee-for-service therapy. About a year into working, one of the clinics hired me full-time, which is where I spent the next two years getting the rest of my hours for my clinical license. These first couple of years working as a full-time therapist proved challenging and showed me that the work was intensely emotional and intellectual labor. Yet it also served as a constant reminder to be grateful for all the good in my life.
My therapeutic style is non-judgmental and interactive, often lending itself to moments of humor and positivity that further the therapeutic bond and offer opportunities for increased self-compassion and forgiveness. My priority when beginning treatment with a client is the development of a trusting, comfortable, and open relationship through
which exploration of difficult issues can be made with an increased sense of ease and Safety. After establishing trust, I use a cognitive behavioral and attachment theory informed lens to help clients work through any challenges that are causing them anxiety or distress.
In 2023 I joined Resilient Mind as a Clinical Supervisor. My role here is to both challenge and support my supervisees in providing leading-edge psychotherapy. I strive to bring empathy, organization, accountability, and positive energy to this practice. Outside of work, I enjoy eating at the city’s tastiest restaurants, hanging out with friends and family, and playing with my dog Stanley. I have a saying from a fortune cookie that I taped to my mirror at home that says, “The principle business of life is to enjoy it.” I try to live my life by this saying every day.
