Currently licensed to practice in New York

Fluent in French and English

I am a licensed psychotherapist practicing in the State of New York focused on working with young adults in individual, family, couples and group psychotherapy settings. I work with both English and French speaking individuals.


I am experienced and passionate about treating a range of disorders including depression, anxiety, ADHD, learning disorders and individuals with high functioning autism. I am particularly focused on helping individuals improve their self esteem. Whether it be for my passion for changing the stigma on men’s mental health, working performance anxiety in athletes at the highest level of their sports or helping high functioning individuals on the autism spectrum overcome their social anxiety and improve their communication with peers. 


I am also experienced working with individuals who have experienced trauma. I often focus on early life sexual, physical and verbal abuse in addition to helping those who are grieving after a premature parental loss. My goal is to help my clients reclaim their narrative and get back some of the control that they might feel was lost during these traumatic events. 


I completed my Masters degree in Social Work at Simmons University, there I worked as an ABA provider to children on the Autism Spectrum. Since graduating I have been doing crisis work at The Justice Resource Institute with individuals struggling with various acute mental health challenges in addition to general outpatient psychotherapy. I completed my undergraduate degree at Boston University with a focus in health science. 


As an outpatient I like to use a strengths based perspective so that my clients are able to build on the positives they already have rather than focusing on defeats and feeding into a deficit mindset. In this way I help people move forward and build up towards more confidence and self efficacy. The goal is to create partnership with my clients and give them control over their sessions so that they can achieve the goals that they set.
