My Approach to Helping
My goal is to provide a caring and responsive environment for each client. I value the strong therapeutic relationship of trust that empowers clients to make progress towards their life goals. I use various therapeutic techniques based on client needs. These approaches include but are not limited to: Behavioral Therapy; Cognitive Behavioral Therapy; Person Centered Therapy and Mindfulness Therapy. My therapeutic approaches are informed by my extensive experience as a teacher.
More Info About My Practice
Education: I graduated from New York University with a Master’s Degree in Counseling. I went on to earn a post-Master’s Educational Specialist Degree in Counseling from Rider University. I obtained my LAC (Licensed Associate Counselor) and am continuing to work towards my LPC (Licensed Professional Counselor).
Experience: I have worked successfully with a wide range of clients from a variety of backgrounds. I have experience with very young clients (ages 5-10) and adults (ages 19 through senior citizens). Therapy provides a safe, supportive and non-judgmental setting for my clients to share their thoughts, feelings and concerns. I try to meet all clients where they are, listen attentively and provide therapeutic assistance for them to face their challenges and make progress in meeting their goals.
About me: I like to spend free time with my family and friends. I especially enjoy baking, bicycling, being outdoors, reading, and going to the theater.
