The above are my credentials, academically and professionally, allowing me to be duly licensed in multiple locations. Being a true healer is one way people have described me. I believe that the source of blessing that made us all is what helps me to help others and we are all here to help one another grow in one way or another. I have been trained at well respected places and all my teachers and mentors have been very skilled professionals and amazing healers. I have helped many people and am passionate about the work and the organic process of change. If you decide to open the door to this journey and I feel I can help you and you then sit down on the chair and do the work with me then I will be with you to share and guide and witness and be amazed at the spectacular person that you are.
I enjoy traditional therapy and have been trained in multiple different theories and modalities. I also have been trained in other modalities that are more eclectic and alternative and use my ancestral teachings to guide things at times as we are all a part of the fabric of the one who created this experience we are having. I find many of these healing energies to work very well in combination with traditional psychotherapy.
In the past, I was on the board of a non-profit organization in Greenwich, CT dedicated to Lyme Disease Research and was able to run a successful Lyme Disease Support group for them for many years. I also have been interviewed by local television in NYC and for several internet radio shows on various topics around mental health and Lyme disease. I have worked with NYC police mobile crisis teams, treated chemically dependent clients with auricular acupuncture for detoxification, journeyed with shamans of different varieties and cultures, and fought for the rights of Chronic TBD patients with grassroots community care, and utilized my tribal teachings for healing wounded adults effected by the traumatic effects of war, medical procedures and sexual, emotional or physical abuse. This is only a small taste for my diverse clinical experiences.
My style is very direct, compassionate and hopeful. I value clients who share with me their thoughts about what they are looking for or needing to change or grow into. I am also extremely intuitive and use this to help me with the process. I have been trained also in the school of hard knocks and had many teachers on this path having gone through many of my own personal and profound transformative initiations which I feel helps me to be more of an ally and empath with you. Many of these teachers had no formal education and were some of the most gifted healers and humans one can meet. Since my training and clinical experience has been extremely diverse it lends itself to being able to quickly identify what the underlying issues may be for you. Feel free to ask any questions you have about any of my services. I am here to serve.

"Never, never be afraid to do what's right, especially if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake. Society's punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our soul when we look the other way." - Martin Luther King, Jr.
"There comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but he must take it because conscience tells him it is right." -Martin Luther King, Jr.

"Our goal should be to live life in radical amazement...get up in the morning and look at the world in a way that takes nothing for granted. Everything is phenomenal; everything is phenomenal; everything is incredible; never treat life casually. To be spiritual is to be amazed" Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel
"The essence of peace is to merge two opposites. Therefore your notions should not scare you if you see another, who absolutely opposes you, and you presume that there is no chance for peace between you two. On the same token when you see two individuals who are exactly two opposites, never say it would be impossible for them to reconcile. On the contrary, and this is the perfection of peace to make it between two opposites." - Rebbe Nachman of Breslov
