My Approach to Helping

Choosing to seek professional care takes real courage. I offer a secure, judgment-free space where you can explore any adverse issues you may be facing. My therapeutic approach integrates principles from a variety of empirically-supported modalities such as dialectical behavior therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, positive psychology, play therapy, and family systems therapy. I will provide the professional support you need on your journey to long-term health and happiness.

We are a group of multi-specialty treatment centers that utilize proven assessment protocols and cutting-edge treatment options to give you the care you need. Our clients do not have to guess which modality is scientifically validated or most appropriate for their circumstances. We offer a comprehensive, multi-specialty assessment to unearth the real reasons for your issues and incorporate our findings into a personalized treatment plan that is designed just for you.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I am a graduate of Rutgers University and have my Master?s degree in Mental Health Counseling. My background is in cognitive neuroscience combined with psychotherapy. I have worked with clients of diverse ages and backgrounds in individual, group, and family settings. I have specialized in counseling individuals who have been incarcerated as well as individuals and families navigating a life-changing illness (e.g., dementia, cancer, HIV/AIDS). I additionally work with those at the end of their lives, with a focus on grief and bereavement.
