I earned a BA in Psychology & Sociology from SUNY Stony Brook and my MSW from New York University. I then earned a post-graduate certificates in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy from The Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapy as well as in shame resilience through the Brené Brown Education and Research Group. Prior to my work in private practice, I worked in a non-profit providing community-based mental health care and harm reduction psychotherapy to New Yorkers.
