Thank you for visiting this page! It is a privilege to potentially work with you or your loved one. I am a New Jersey Licensed Professional Counselor who has truly found my passion by working in this field. I am a passionate and energetic therapist who is dedicated to helping others with whatever difficulty they seem to be struggling with. Sometimes on the path to being happy and living a full and enriched life we all can use a helping hand.
My previous career experience has been with children, adolescents, and adults with developmental disabilities, primarily Aspergers Syndrome and High-Functioning Autism. Additionally, I have worked with an array of diagnoses, including anxiety, depression, learning disabilities, ADHD, and OCD. Regardless of the diagnosis or difficulty, I believe that everyone can benefit by increasing their coping with stress strategies and problem solving skills, thus I enjoy dedicating some time in my sessions to enhancing these skills.
Primarily I use Cognitive-Behavioral and/or Solution-Focused strategies when working with clients. Understanding that every person is unique and what may work for one client may not work for another, my approach is both flexible and integrative. My style is directive yet compassionate, and my primary goal is to create a safe and empathic environment where my clients feel supported, safe, and more confident as they take steps towards an optimal life.
