My Approach to Helping
I earned my degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Long Island University. Currently, I am completing my doctorate in Clinical Psychology at Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. I have worked with a variety of individuals struggling with mental illnesses such as anxiety, depression, bipolar, schizophrenia, personality disorders, and other concerns. I have experience working in inpatient, outpatient, and residential care settings with consumers of all ages.
I primarily use cognitive-behavioral approaches and try and help clients understand the link between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Understanding this link and how to view things in a different manner can positively affect outcomes. My goal in therapy is to gain a strong working relationship with you to collaborate on mutual treatment goals and improve your situation.
Currently, I am a psychology extern at a psychiatric hospital and out-patient children's services. I provide individual and family therapy to children and adolescents in residential treatment homes part-time. In my spare time, I enjoy running, working out, hiking, and playing with my dog.
