Get to Know Me and My Team

Ever since I was young, I knew I wanted to get into a career path that would make a difference in people’s lives. This interest led me to study of psychology and mental health, ultimately leading me to a rewarding career of helping people. As a licensed Mental Health Counselor in the greater New York &  South Florida area, I am committed to the well-being of all my clients and go above and beyond to cater to their needs.

I truly care for all of my clients and work diligently to help find them the answers they seek. Since 2016, I have worked with a variety of clients dealing with circumstances that are unique to their lives, which led me down the path of specializing working with children utilizing play therapy.
