My Approach to Helping

Empathy, compassion, and cultural sensitivity are at the heart of my work with each of my clients. Finding a therapist can seem like a daunting task and beginning a therapeutic relationship can bring about a range of emotions. I believe it is my job to provide my clients with a safe, open space in which they feel comfortable to share about their lives, explore the challenges they face, and learn the necessary tools to overcome life's obstacles. As a therapist, I strongly believe in developing a collaborative relationship in which each of my client's takes an active role in their treatment. I utilize a Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) approach, which focuses on the connection between our thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. Through the use of individualized treatment plans, my goal is to support my client along hisher unique path towards success.

More Info About My Practice

I am a Licensed Associate Counselor and a National Board-Certified Counselor. I received my Master's degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Montclair State University. I also hold a Bachelor's degree in Family & Child Studies. I have a lifelong passion for helping others within the Human Services field. I have over 10 years of combined experience working with children and families in the school, community, and clinical mental health settings. I've enjoyed working with clients across the lifespan and from all walks of life. I also have a passion for Career Counseling and have successfully completed the Facilitating Career Development course offered by the National Career Development Association.

In my free time, I enjoy photography, reading, and spending time at the beach. I have a passion for knowledge and I am always looking for something new to learn.
