I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and certified Brain Health Coach. For over a decade I have been passionate about the psychology of resilience and truly enjoy supporting and empowering others on their journey to mental wellness.
As a cancer survivor I devoted my professional and personal life to finding what makes us humans resilient enough to overcome adversity such as chronic illness, stress and trauma. Subsequently I studied traditional and alternative healing approaches, including mindfulness practices, biofeedback, strength-focused interventions, as well as nature-based and animal-assisted therapy.
My two undergraduate degrees in Medical Laboratory Science and Health Care Management were completed at a university in Germany, where I grew up. After relocating to the US, I earned my masters degree in Mental Health Counseling from the City University of New York. Currently I am a PhD candidate, working towards my doctorate in Counselor Education and Supervision.
My practice has moved fully online in consideration of everyone's health and safety during the pandemic. This modality has proven to be just as effective and a lot more practical than office visits for my clients. Telehealth appointments can be scheduled with greater flexibility and comfort.
I currently accept most Aetna and UnitedHealthcare insurance plans for NY and CT clients.
I look forward to hearing from you!
