BIOGRAPHY

I received my Masters in art therapy and post-graduate training in Integrated Trauma Treatment.  Before opening my practice, I worked extensively in New York City with children and adolescents in the foster care system, court-involved young people, and adults with psychiatric diagnoses.  I also saw adult clients at the Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapy through their Trauma Studies Center and Gay and Lesbian Affirmative Psychotherapy programs. 



My training in two trauma-processing psychotherapy models has transformed my practice and continues to enrich the lives of many clients.  Assisting in  IFS (Internal Family Systems) Level 1 trainings in White Plains, NY has helped deepen my understanding and appreciation of IFS and allows me to stay connected to a wonderful community of psychotherapists. 

I have also performed in bands and collaborated with many downtown NYC performers for the last ten years.  I like to think my experience as a performer enhances my clinical work.
