Individual, Couples and Family Therapy
Approach: Trauma-Informed, Relational, Family Systems
ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS.
Creating change in one's life, family or community is a process that often can require support. Therapeutic work can be way through difficult moments. My empowering approach gets to the heart of what matters to you, at a pace that is comfortable for you through uncomfortable times. While we often feel like issues and problems can overpower us, together we will work on manifesting what is possible for your healing.
Drawing on 20 years of practical experience in the arts and facilitation fields, my work is focused on health/mental health, individual, families and couples; arts-based interventions; addiction recovery; critical consciousness; and liberation-based healing practices.
As a facilitator, I have created curricula and processes for staff and young people in the arts, supported teachers and principals on classroom management strategies, and helped burgeoning not-for-profits create new systems and tackle difficult organizational situations. Clients included: Children’s Trust Neighborhood Initiative, Federation of East Village Artists, Black Alliance for Just Immigration, Newark Public Schools, and others. Most recently, I developed a creative workshop program for men in addiction recovery and young women in transitional housing for Turning Point in Brooklyn. She holds an LMSW Clinical Practice (Hunter College).
I have held internships with Exceed Charter Schools working with children in grades K-6 and was selected to be part of the Diversity in Social Work program at the Ackerman Institute for the Family. I am currently supervised by a private practitioner with 25+ years experience in family systems and relational approaches, and am using my clinical skills at Mount Sinai Hospital - Main Campus working in complex trauma case management; and on the planning committee of the Liberation-based Healing Conference.
