My Approach to Helping

My approach to therapy starts with creating a comfortable, supportive atmosphere where my clients are free to truly be themselves. I believe a strong therapeutic relationship is one of the most important factors in a positive therapy outcome. Depending on the needs of each individual, I utilize multiple treatment approaches, including person-centered therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, and play therapy. It is my belief that all people are capable of positive change and growth. Therapy is a safe space where new insights, behaviors, and life transformations are all possible through building a collaborative relationship.

In my free time, I enjoy hiking, snowboarding, listening to music, and spending time with family and friends. I also enjoy traveling and seeing new places.

More Info About My Practice

I earned my Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from William Paterson University. I have experience in partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient programs, providing individual, group, and family therapy through my internship. As an intensive in-home clinician, I have had the opportunity to work with children, adolescents, and their families. In addition to my counseling experience, I have also worked in a school setting as an instructional aide and job coach with adolescents diagnosed with ADHD, Autism, and other developmental disabilities.
