Hi, my name is Ali (she/her). I am a mental health professional based in New York City. Incorporating a range of disciplines, I aim to provide meaningful insight into how your experiences — internal and external — shape how you integrate your memories and awareness. I take a holistic approach to psychotherapeutic support and work at The Center for Integrative Mental Health. I offer a confidential, reliable, supportive setting for you to express yourself freely.
There's a subtle enormity to being seen -- and that's my goal in working together.
In our sessions, I intend to aid you in identifying subconscious blocks that are inhibiting you from living life with greater passion and authenticity.
In addition to my LMSW, I hold certifications in trauma-informed cognitive behavioral therapy, grief counseling, and restorative justice. I have received training in meditation, pranayama, and kundalini yoga. I draw heavily from psychoanalysis, object relations, interpersonal neurobiology, systems-centered theory, and somatic experiencing. I am taking courses at Carriage House Birth to provide better perinatal mental health support and training in EMDR to be better equipt to work with trauma.
Preserve time with loved ones for the conversations you want to have
Let's get to the root cause
Honor differences and promote integration
Gain clarity through accountability
I received my LMSW from New York University’s Silver School of Social Work, focusing on clinical family practice. I hold a BA in Humanities and a BS in Journalism with concentrations in Psychology and Media Studies from The University of Colorado at Boulder.
Previously, I worked in marketing for a Danish fintech company. It was grounding to work with brilliant, international colleagues and taught me the value of teamwork — and to avoid eating lunch alone. Before learning the language of finance, I worked in documentary film and editorial photography. Production taught me the power of perception — and, again, the value of taking time to break bread with the team.
I feel called to help people engage with their communities differently. All of my life, I wanted to figure out a way to stay a student. Here I am — I regularly attend workshops and evaluate my approach to working with clients.
I am excited and humbled to be considered a partner in your well-being journey.
Most sessions are held over Zoom, but ask me about in-person options.
