Changing patterns of behavior, ways of thinking, and relating to others can be difficult and requires patience and understanding. I strive to provide an open space where it is okay to share your thoughts and feelings without the worry of being judged. My approach involves creating an integrative and individualized plan to fit each client’s therapeutic needs. My overall goal is to assist in the facilitation of client success.
Education and Experience:I am a Licensed Associate Counselor (LAC) and National Board Certified Counselor (NCC). I received my Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Psychology from Kean University, Masters (MA) in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Nathan Weiss Graduate College, Kean University. My desire to become a therapist came about during my adolescence, when a close relative was diagnosed with Schizophrenia. Viewing his journey propelled me into the helping field. Over the years, I have gained a wide range of experience working in outpatient, partial care, and higher education settings. The nature of my experience includes providing individual, family, and group therapy to a varied population (i.e. marital/couple's issues, depression, anxiety, academic problems, crisis intervention, addictions, and many more).
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family, friends, and dog. I often spend time partaking in therapeutic dog trainings.
