Who I Am…

Since I was a child, I’ve known that there is much more to life than what the five senses tell us. Having material possessions, praise from others or other outward markers of success often say little about our inner state and who we are. It’s how things are on the inside that really counts. For me, this was always obvious.

I began my journey pursuing music, but eventually realized that despite my love for it, this wasn’t how I could be most helpful. Sitting in front of a computer screen and doing web development work wasn’t fulfilling either, despite the nice salary that it brought.

After some soul searching and spending time overseas, I realized that psychology was what excited me. I was always very curious about who I am and did whatever I could to improve myself. In fact, I believe that self-improvement is an endless journey. Through psychology, I found many tools with which I could help others and make a lasting difference in their lives.

I earned a Masters in Social Work degree from one of the best schools in the country and am currently a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) in the state of New York. I also hold a life coaching certification as a Certified Professional Coach (CPC). Overall, I have almost ten years experience in psychotherapy and counseling.

Outside of this work, I’m also a volunteer and teacher at the International Academy of Consciousness (IAC), a non-profit organization focused on spiritual self-development. I have been involved with the IAC since the late 1990’s and find this work very fulfilling. In fact, it has impacted how I conduct my practice in countless ways, helping me bring practical spirituality into my sessions.

Go ahead and contact me if you’d like to see if we are a good fit for each other. I’d be happy to setup a free consultation with you.
