I have over 10 years of experience working as a clinical mental health counselor while working in a variety of clinical settings from outpatient to residential, with diverse populations. Through my experiences, I developed a continuing passion for treating individuals who are working toward optimal development. In facilitating treatment, I utilize strategies of prevention, intervention, and remediation to assist in developing effective coping skills and responses to clients’ environment. I provide a warm and safe space for my clients to foster support for setting goals that support a recovered lifestyle.

Central Park Conservancy. They work year round rain or shine to restore and maintain the world's most gorgeous urban park(maybe I am biased). I used to volunteer as a greeter for the conservancy.
Nature, I walk in Central Park with my dog, taking time off work to go on vacations and staycations and setting boundaries.
I have a 12 year old Bulldog named Max. When recovering from a ruptured ACL he needed to be strolled around in an extra large dog stroller in NYC. We called it the Maxi Taxi.
