I am an NYC-based psychologist who is passionate about bringing mental health awareness and education into the wellness space.
As a psychologist, I have worked in various roles at businesses ranging from the fitness world to corporate settings. My understanding of psychological dynamics, approachability, and sense of ease allows me to build solid and trustworthy relationships with others. I can listen, assess the needs of an organization, and tailor my message and content specifically for that business and its clients. I believe that through this process of working together and my solid knowledge base, organizational growth happens.
My work has taught me the importance of having a solid sense of self and a stable foundation to guide you through life and help you stay centered when you make decisions and face adversity. A strong sense of self is built from the inside and involves time, reflection, vulnerability, and mental fortitude.
I can support individuals, leaders, and companies to develop a solid foundation and core message that includes mental health and wellness. In this ever-changing, unpredictable world, these core messages that consider individuals’ needs are what keep employees and clients engaged, motivated, and connected to you.
Another thing I learned from my professional experience is the significance of finding things to love outside of work so that you can enjoy a healthy balance in life. This was easy for me as I am a fitness enthusiast and willing to try pretty much any athletic activity. Growing up as a tomboy, I tried all sports until I settled on tennis and played competitively in college. As a competitive athlete, I learned the importance of drive, motivation, consistency, and mindset at an early age.
As I consult with businesses and brands, I now have the fortune of combing my two passions, mental fitness and wellness. My experience as a psychologist, integrity, and determination make me a well sought-after partner. I know how to relate to people, and people relate well to me, making my messages significant. I also understand the psychology behind things, the unspoken messages, and how the minds of others work. I can translate mental health trends into everyday relatable language so that others can connect to them, identify with my message, and want to make changes to better their lifestyle.
On a more personal note, I was born and raised in the Hudson Valley and currently live in NYC. Growing up in upstate NY, I learned to appreciate everything outdoors and the value of nature. I am passionate about what I do and bring this enthusiasm everywhere I go!
I earned my PsyD in School-Clinical psychology from Pace University and will be earning my PostDoctoral degree in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis from New York University in the Fall of 2022.
Areas of Expertise
Stress and anxiety are normal emotions felt by everyone at one point or another. A little stress is good because it can motivate individuals, however, It is hard for individuals to think clearly, prioritize, and execute when stress levels are too high.
I can teach people how to understand and manage their anxiety-producing thoughts and how to modify their environment and lifestyle to decrease stress.
The last two years have left so many people feeling burnt out, depleted, depressed, and unmotivated. Part of my specialty is helping people manage these feelings and supporting them in their journey to feel more alive, engaged, and connected at work.
With working from home, lack of clear boundaries, unlimited access to people, and limitations on what feels safe to do and what does not, the ability to have a healthy work-life balance has been severely affected.
I can support companies in establishing a healthy work-life balance for their employees. This leads to improved engagement, less turnover, higher morale, increased productivity, and greater growth.
Imposter syndrome, or feeling like a fraud, affects almost 80% of people at one point or another.. Feeling incompetent limits individuals’ self-confidence, productivity, creativity, and overall growth. By addressing the underlying causes of Imposter Syndrome, I can help people feel more sure of themselves in life and in the workplace.
