Unlock your mind. Heal your past.

I am a trauma specialist who loves supporting adult children of emotionally immature parents, post-college grads navigating early adulthood, and college students.

I focus on:

• EMDR for trauma and PTSD
• Overcoming depression and anxiety
• Clinical Hypnosis
• Recovering from abuse (physical, sexual, emotional)
• Dealing with emotionally immature parents

My clients come to therapy to heal from things like physical, emotional, or sexual abuse, the impact of emotionally immature parents, and other traumatic experiences.  In addition to talk therapy, I offer both EMDR and clinical hypnosis for clients who want to reduce traumatic memories, get to know their healthier adult selves, set boundaries with others, and build more rewarding intimate relationships.

My Approach

I want you to know that healing is possible--it does not have to be like this.

I’ll start off by hearing your story and walking you through a set of questions that help me understand your therapy goals. Depending on your goals, I will suggest the best treatment approach, perhaps a combination of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR), clinical hypnosis, and talk therapy. EMDR is a powerful method to reprocess and reduce traumatic memories and the high-intensity emotions they trigger and combining it with hypnosis can produce a more powerful effect. My clients often see significant improvement within two months of starting therapy.

I am part of the team at Cultivate Therapy. I offer in-person sessions at our Jersey City office and provide Telehealth sessions for clients residing in NYC, NY, and NJ. I offer daytime and evening appointments. Call, text, or email me anytime or book a free consult. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

My training has included earning my Masters in Social Work, obtaining my professional license in both New York and New Jersey, and completing advanced training in both EMDR and clinical hypnosis.
