I am a licensed clinical social worker specializing in individual, couples and family therapy and maintain a private practice in New York, N.Y. My area of expertise include : trauma/PTSD, depression, anxiety, family therapy, intergenerational conflict, multi-cultural/cross cultural issues and immigration issues.
I have over fifteen years of experience as an individual and family therapist and specialize in working with individuals and families from diverse cultural backgrounds. I am particularly interested in the adjustment involved in moving and living in a new country and the cross-cultural implications.
I believe that the rapport that develops between therapist and client is key to an effective therapy. I am an interactive, solution-focused therapist. My therapeutic approach is interpersonal, collaborative and reflective. I provide support and practical feedback to help clients effectively address personal life challenges. I integrate complementary methodologies and techniques to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each client. With compassion and understanding, I work with each individual to help them build on their strengths and attain the personal growth they are committed to accomplishing.
