I believe therapy should be a safe, non-judgmental, affirming and overall authentic space that fosters openness, empowers the voices of the unheard and allows them to be seen. I aim to provide a space that is non-discriminatory and anti-oppressive. I believe that therapy must co-exist with the practice of honoring diverse people and diverse thought. It should be a place all individuals can should feel welcomed regardless of their cultural background or socio-economic status.
I work collaboratively with my clients to help them identify negative thought patterns and provide guidance on how to think in more adaptive ways. I incorporate a person-centered approach to explore the underlying emotions and experiences that contribute to these negative thinking patterns. By creating a non-judgmental therapeutic environment where empathy, congruence, and unconditional positive regard are core conditions, I strive to enhance the therapeutic relationship and promote self-understanding, acceptance, and self-growth.
Currently, I am a Master's student in the MHC program at Baruch College and have experience with several modalities such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Person Centered Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy and Existentialism. If you’re unsure of where to start, I will meet you where you're at and provide support and guidance to explore, discover and develop various aspects of yourself and all that you may encompass!
