My Approach to Helping

Clinical Approach: I like to use an integrative approach when working with my clients because everyone is different and might require a different approach. This allows us to bring together all aspects of a person and learn how one area in our lives might be affecting another. As a counselor, my goal is for the client and myself to work collaboratively and comfortably and come to an understanding of what they are truly looking to improve or change in their lives.

A Bit About Myself: I am a big advocate for self-care, so I make sure to take care of my own mental health days as well. I enjoy dancing and performing, reading, listening to my favorite music, and watching different types of tv shows. I love traveling and doing anything adventurous, and hopefully one day I can experience bungee jumping and skydiving.

More Info About My Practice

I am currently a Licensed Associate Counselor, working towards becoming a Licensed Professional Counselor. I obtained my Bachelor of Arts from Rutgers University, majoring in Psychology with a minor in LGBTQ studies. During this time, I worked with children, teens, and college-aged students in various environments, assisting them with coping skills, improving their behavior, broadening their thinking, and furthering their education. I then received my Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Fairleigh Dickinson University. Throughout this time, I worked with individuals who experienced sexual trauma as well as individuals who are developmentally delayed. Both experiences were very different but allowed me to work with a varying degree of people and issues that helped me become more well-rounded. I also have experience as a case manager, where I assist clients diagnosed with schizophrenic, psychotic, bipolar, etc. disorders with reintegrating into the community once discharged from long term psychiatric hospitals.
