My Approach to Helping

Therapeutic Approach: Working with younger clients has been a great joy of mine and I am delighted to see the upcoming leaders of our world come into their own. By providing an understanding, judgment-free environment and utilizing compassion, empathy, and humor, I am able to develop a supportive counseling relationship to ensure success and an overall better sense of well-being for all of my clients. I typically engage with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness-based (MBCT) practices, but I think it is also important to pull from a variety of other approaches.

In my spare time, I enjoy creative writing, golfing, playing guitar, and woodworking. I'm a lover of art, especially film, and I consider it a good day if I'm able to visit a museum or go to a movie theater.

More Info About My Practice

Educational Background: I received my Master's degree in Counseling and Education Specialist degree in Professional Counseling from Seton Hall University. I earned my Bachelor's degree in Psychology and Criminal Justice, with a minor in Criminology, from Rutgers University. During my graduate internships, I had the privilege of working with clients from a variety of different age groups and mental illnesses. My experience in an intensive outpatient setting revealed the importance of group therapy and combining various treatment methods to promote a better treatment outcome. Completing my internship at an outpatient facility was an integral step in exploring the world outside of an intensive outpatient facility and provided me with experience in how to continue care at a less intense level.
