A little about me

 I believe in using a  client-centered practice, cultural humility, and a strength based approach.

Why I love my job

I am happy to serve the needs of the greater New York City area’s diverse urban population. My experience varies in patient ages, backgrounds, and mental health needs, which has allowed me to develop a sense of purpose in community work.
