I am trained in EMDR therapy (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing); an approach that was developed for working with trauma but can be very effective for a wide variety of issues including, but not limited to depression, anxiety, low self esteem, preparing for important events.
I worked for a number of years at a community-based outpatient mental health clinic in Brooklyn, New York, providing therapy to children, adults and families struggling with concerns ranging from acute mental health needs to problems in relationships, difficulty achieving goals, etc. Working in a community based organization I learnt of the importance of collaboration and having a holistic approach to treatment, in order to capture and support change in various areas of a client’s life, especially when working with children. Hence, in my work I actively collaborated with school counselors, teachers and other professionals to provide in-depth, holistic services to my clients. I am comfortable working with complex family situations requiring coordination among different agencies and services.
