Mental Health Counseling Intern
I am a graduate student in the Counseling for Mental Health and Wellness program at NYU training to become a Licensed Mental Health Counselor. I earned a Bachelor of Arts at Drew University in Theatre Arts with a minor in Psychology. For the past five years, I have worked with an occupational therapist providing sensory movement integration for children and adults with disabilities. I also trained under the mentorship of a yoga therapist in New Mexico, which has deepened my understanding of holistic discovery and embodiment. There, I was immersed the practice of yoga, social justice, and Buddhist teachings—all of which influence my therapeutic approach.
My personal journey with healing has illuminated the challenges that come when life delivers the unexpected. Given my background, I am uniquely attuned to the power of somatic experience and nonverbal communication. Therapy can be a place to build a bridge between the internal and external, a place that gives the unspeakable a voice.
I view therapy as a collaborative process rooted in
genuine connection between client and therapist. Together, we seek to make meaning of the past, increase presence, access joy, and identify the areas where we can let go to create something new. It is my belief that the changes incited by therapy not only impact the individuals in the counseling room, but extend to a broader, collective healing in the spaces shared with our loved ones, communities, and our world.
