About Me

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and a yoga/meditation teacher. I have been working in the mental health field for over a decade. I specialize in both mindfulness meditation practices and LGBTQ issues. Working within these two areas is my passion, but I enjoy working with a variety of individuals and concerns.

My mindfulness and compassion practice has been deepened by numerous silent meditation retreats. I have attending workshops and studied under notable meditation teachers. I believe mindfulness and compassion practice doesn’t only reduce daily stress, but also aids in holistic health and psychological well-being. These practices work especially well for anxiety, depression, and other mood disorders.

I have a deep and personal commitment to working with the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, transsexual, gender non-conforming, queer & questioning community and their families. I am a full professional member of WPATH (World Professional Association of Transgender Health). Every individual has their own story and their own unique issues and I value all of them. Finding support, especially outside of an urban area, is not always an easy task. I hope to be an accessible resource for the community on Long Island.
