Hi, I'm Carmel. Here's a little about me and my style:
I practice from an integrative approach as I draw from a range of modalities to best support you and the specific issues you'd like to work on. Together, we can work to increase effective coping skills, reduce anxiety and stress, increase self-confidence and enhance overall well-being. Most importantly, I deeply value developing a therapeutic relationship that results in you feeling seen and understood, and that helps you achieve greater emotional health and wellness.
I earned my Master’s in Social Work from New York University in 2005. I have specialized training in trauma-informed therapy as well as in perinatal and postpartum mental health. I also have a Master's degree in education, and worked as a special education teacher for a number of years before returning to clinical practice.
Lastly, I recognize the courage it takes to open up to someone new. It is a privilege to get to know you and to work with you.
