I am a second-year graduate student at Columbia University’s School of Social Work and I’m delighted to be serving as a clinical intern at this practice this academic year.
As an individual and couples therapist, I believe that we all deserve a safe space to explore who we are and to heal from past and present challenges. I’ll work with you to develop the insight and skills necessary to manage anxiety, depression, overwhelming emotions, relationship struggles, and to resolve past traumas. I draw upon Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Motivational Interviewing (MI), and feminist theory to support this work. My work with couples centers around building strong relationships through mutual understanding, communication, and conflict management, as I have a background in the Gottman Method. At your comfort, we will bring into our sessions the techniques listed above, your own strengths and interests, and an array of tools and resources where appropriate.
My goal is to actively engage with you—while putting you at ease and offering support—as you find your best path forward. I believe that embedded in each of us are the tools and knowledge for self-reflection, growth, and healing.
