Licensed Professional Counselor Licensed Clinical Alcohol and Drug Counselor
Thank you for taking the time to consider my help as you decide to move forward in your life. I am available for individual consultations with motivated people seeking profound connection and change for their mental health and substance use issues. I am currently serving as a counselor serving busy clients during the evening hours of the week.
I provide a forum for my clients to feel truly heard, and make clear and logical decisions in support of committed change towards wellness and recovery. I am particularly focused on the stories clients tell themselves about their limitations, and then help them to revise and retell those stories with an emphasis on opportunity and personal meaning. I also have experience and training with trauma issues and LGBT issues.
I am a licensed professional counselor (LPC), a National Certified Counselor (NCC), and a Licensed Clinical Alcohol and Drug Counselor (LCADC). As a graduate of The College of New Jersey with master's degree in Counselor Education from a nationally accredited program, and experience working in many different settings.
I also hold accreditations as a school counselor and a student assistance coordinator from the Department of Education.
If you are seeking someone to be an engaged, supportive listener with a proven approach to substance abuse and mental health issues, I look forward to hearing from you.
