My Approach to Helping
My goal is to create a calm, safe, and open environment for individuals to share and grow in. I am passionate about engaging people in a journey of self-awareness and personal growth, I believe that everyone is different, and each journey is unique. Through conversation and counseling techniques I strive to assist individuals to overcome personal challenges, identify goals, and improve their overall well-being.
More Info About My Practice
I attended Georgian Court University where I received a Bachelor’s in Psychology as well as a Master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I have experience working with individuals of all ages ranging from children and adolescents to adults and the elderly. I also had the pleasure of working with individuals of different cultural backgrounds as well as a diverse population of mental illness. I have worked in a partial care treatment center as well as in a community-based program where I was given the opportunity to meet individuals at their homes or in the community to provide treatment. I work with a combination of different therapeutic approaches such as Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing (MI), and Mindfulness.
Outside of counseling, I enjoy going on walks with my dog, being with friends and family, being by the beach, cooking, gardening, watching movies, and eating.
