Licensed Professional Counselor Licensed Clinical Alcohol & Drug Counselor
At some point in our lives, we can all feel stuck or overwhelmed, especially in this fast-paced society.
Oftentimes, we refuse to accept the very things we need to do to become “unstuck” since it takes us outside of our comfort zone. As a result, we often get trapped in a vicious cycle of repeating the familiar and getting the same outcome. Achieving positive change requires us to take an unfamiliar path.
As your therapist, I provide you with an empathetic and nonjudgmental environment by actively listening, understanding and assisting you in achieving self-actualization.
As a licensed professional counselor (LPC) a National Certified Counselor (NCC), and a Licensed Clinical Alcohol and Drug Counselor (LCADC), I have had the opportunity to work with a diverse population. I am devoted to the treatment of children, adolescents, adults and families. I have worked in numerous therapeutic settings. Specifically, I treat children, adolescents, and adults with a broad range of psychological, behavioral disorders, bipolar disorders, ADHD, marital and couples’ issues, divorce, blended family issues, adolescent issues, substance abuse disorder, depression, anxiety, and gender identity concerns, and the concerns of the LGBTQ population. I assist adolescents and adults with co-occurring disorders to regain control of their lives. I’m skilled in a variety of psychological testing and trained in trauma techniques.
My eclectic and humanistic approach consists of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT) and Person Centered approaches tailored to meet your needs. Furthermore, I believe therapy is a collaborative effort to explore what works for you, so I do not adhere to a one-size-fits-all approach.
I am available for daytime and evening appointments. EDUCATION Master of Science (M.S.) in Mental Health Counseling from Capella University, Minneapolis, MN 2009-2012 Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in Psychology from Montclair State University, Upper Montclair, NJ 1991-1995
