I love to work with women in their 20s, post-college grads navigating early adulthood, new or expecting moms, adults struggling with infertility, and anyone going through grief, loss, or big transitions.

I specialize in:

• Postpartum depression and anxiety
• Infertility struggles
• Grief and loss
• Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
• Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

My clients come to therapy because they’re having a tough time in their current season–maybe they’re struggling after a significant loss, trying to start a family, feeling sad or worried about their new baby, or trying to establish who they are and what they want out of life after college.

We’ll work together to heal from postpartum depression and anxiety, come to terms with loss and change, gain insight about how your past impacts your present, work towards your important life goals, and find more joy in your days along the way.

My Approach

​I want you to know that you will get through this season and that healing is possible. My clients often see significant improvement within two months of starting therapy, though many are also looking for longer-term support.

I’ll start off by hearing your story and walking you through a set of questions to help me understand your symptoms and your therapy goals. Depending on your goals, I will suggest the best treatment approach, possibly DBT, CBT, or Mindfulness-Based Stress Relief. In session we'll do things like talk about your experiences, practice meditation, talk through the thoughts and beliefs that might undermine you, practice distress tolerance or skills for interpersonal effectiveness, or try body-based movement or art therapy. We'll work together to decide how you want to heal and grow.

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 living in NY and NJ. I have daytime and evening appointments. Call, text, or email me anytime. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

My training has included earning my Masters in Social Work, obtaining my professional license in New York and New Jersey, completing certificate programs in Perinatal Mental Health, Mindfulness-Based Stress Relief, and becoming a Certified Grief Therapist. I am also a certified yoga teacher and offer meditation and body-based work in addition to talk-therapy.
