Intern, Master of Arts Programs in Counseling, New York University’s Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development
Languages spoken: English
Candice (she/her/hers) believes that her clients are the experts of their own lives, and her job while working with them is to help them realize their full potential and reach their goals. She takes a collaborative approach in therapy to help clients live their best possible life. Hope, positivity, and resiliency are achievable outcomes from therapy. Candice’s first intervention is to work to create fulfilling relationships with her clients, both in the therapeutic setting and in their own relationships outside of therapy. She is an advocate for social justice and disadvantaged populations and works from a multicultural, strengths-based, and client-centered perspective. She wants to create a safe and open space to allow for change in ultimate wellness. She has knowledge in communication, literacy, and relationships and is a motivated and result-driven professional with proven leadership, strategic planning, and interpersonal skills.
Her general interests are with gender diversity, couples, trauma patients, the LGBTQ+ community, domestic violence survivors, geriatric population, and individuals with general mental health concerns such as panic disorder, anxiety, depression, ADHD, and many more. Candice is obtaining a Master’s Degree in Mental Health and Wellness from New York University in order to eventually earn her Marriage and Family Therapy license (LMFT).
Diversity is not the exception, it’s the norm.

What services do you provide?
I provide a variety of services, including individual therapy, family therapy, group therapy, relationship therapy, and sex therapy. I work with late adolescents and adults.
What modalities do you typically use?
I lean towards using Person-Centered, Narrative, Strengths-based and Solution-Focused theories as my main way of working with clients. I also like to use Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy interventions. I also draw from Imago, Gottman, Bowenian, and Multicultural Therapy in my work.
What does it mean that you're an intern?
To become a therapist, one first has to attain a Master’s Degree for example Master of Arts in Counseling, Master of Social Work, or Master of Family Therapy to name a few. An internship is a required step to complete the degree. I have received the latest training and worked in the most recent evidence-based modalities as a part of my program. As an intern, I am consistently evaluated by my professors and my internship supervisor to ensure that I am providing the most innovative and top-level care. If you have any concerns you can always bring them to me, my supervisor, or my internship coordinator at NYU. Our top priority is for you to get amazing care.
