Hi, I'm Annabella!

Mental Health Counseling Student-Intern

EMDR Trained Therapist

Westchester, NY

My goal is to work collaboratively to help you become more aware of and in control of your relationships, behaviors and emotions.

Do you or your teen:

  • Struggle with feelings of stress?

  • Have overwhelming feelings of sadness or depression?

  • Have anxiety that is interfering in your daily life?

  • Want to improve your relationships?

  • Have behaviors that you would like to manage?

I help clients (adults and teens) develop healthy communication skills, learn to manage stress, and develop insightful decision-making skills. 

I use a variety of therapies, including:

I specialize in helping children and adolescents struggling with:

  • Stress and other intense emotions

  • Challenging behaviors

  • Depression

  • Anxiety

  • College transition 

Therapy should be tailored to each individual in a way that helps benefit them the most. I look forward to working together to help you discover and make changes to become a better, and stronger self!​

Call today so we can start working together!
