About Me

I am a licensed clinical social worker specializing in individual & couples therapy. I maintain a private practice in both Austin TX & New York, NY. My areas of expertise include: Trauma/PTSD, depression, anxiety, family therapy, intergenerational conflict, multi-cultural/cross-cultural issues, and adoption issues. 

I believe the rapport that develops between therapist and client is key to an effective therapy. To this end, I am interactive and reflective in my approach and believe in sharing thoughts & insights with my clients. 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.
