Announcement icon I am now offering in-person sessions. I am also currently meeting with clients via a secure, HIPAA-compliant telehealth platform.
I'm an LCSW conveniently located across from Madison Square Park at 25th and Broadway. I'm psychodynamically oriented, and I specialize in anxiety, play therapy, trauma, and attachment. I enjoy helping families to strengthen relationships. Play is a child's natural way of communicating, and thus is the perfect tool for therapy with young children. I often work with older children, teens, and adults as well, and tailor my therapeutic approach to the needs of each person I work with.
I have training specific to anxiety, trauma, grief, and loss. When working with children, I understand the importance of including caregivers in a child's therapy, and will include you every step of the way.
I understand that it isn't easy to reach out for help for yourself or your child, but I'm here to make sure therapy is helpful for both of you. In addition to supporting your child or teen through therapy, I'll also create behavior strategies you can utilize at home.
