I'm a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist practicing in the West Village. I earned my Masters of Arts in Counseling with an Emphasis in Depth Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute, a Jungian-oriented training program. I'm currently a Psychoanalytic Candidate at the National Psychological Association for Psychoanalysis (NPAP) in New York City.

 

   My clinical work as a therapist at Monte Nido Manhattan, an eating disorder partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient program, has given me specialized experience working eating issues and body image preoccupations. I currently work with many young adults who are actively struggling with eating disorders, and others who are no longer symptomatic but would like to understand more about their history with these issues. 

 

   I also have a special connection with artists, writers, and others in similar creative industries. I attended the Maryland Institute College of Art where I earned my BFA, and I later returned to teach undergraduate courses on psychopathology, dream analysis, and theories of inquiry. I frequently work with individuals dealing with creative blocks, resistance to starting their work, and the uncertainties that come with the creative process.
