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 have several areas of specialized focused including Men's Mental Health, Parental Loss, Learning Disorders, individuals with High Functioning Autism and those with various forms of Early Life Trauma including sexual abuse, physical abuse and neglect. My approach is particularly focused on improving self esteem and using a solutions based perspective. My goal is to help my clients reclaim their narrative and take back control of their lives.

 

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.
