Our humanness, in all its imperfection, is also the power I hope to help illuminate with you in counseling. I’m Bri, a clinical intern at New York Behavioral Health, working towards my clinical mental health counseling licensure. I received my M.A. in Counseling Psychology and Ed.M. in School Counseling from Columbia University, and practiced as a certified school counselor prior to pursuing my clinical license. Now, I work with adults, couples, and families, in addition to my ongoing work with children and adolescents.
I believe therapy is a place where we learn to cope through feeling and find hope through healing; it opens a pathway for insight to be uncovered in our collective and ongoing balance between strength and struggle. I use an integrative approach to create a safe space that encourages clients to explore, gather, chart, untangle, and make-meaning of the beliefs and conditions that detail our existence.
With the therapeutic relationship as our cornerstone, we will navigate together the difficult emotions and delicate experiences that shape your unique worldview. Each session we will work towards consciously processing reflections, clarifying connections, and moving through unfamiliar change to relieve discomfort and encourage development. My goal is to help each client advance their awareness, enhance their acceptance, and empower their growth through restorative techniques and mindful wellness practices.
