My Approach to Helping

I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from the University of Maryland in 2008. In 2012, I earned my Master of Arts in Counseling from Montclair State University. While at Montclair I had the opportunity to attend training in post-traumatic stress disorder, mindfulness, and anxiety. Furthermore, I have specialized training and extensive experience working with survivors of sexual assault and first responders. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Board Certified National Certified Counselor. I have over 8 years of experience providing therapy to adolescents, adults, and their families in a variety of settings including outpatient, residential, and community-based services. Having served as a first responder for over 20 years in varying capacities, I understand the unique situations our responders face daily and have developed a system that is effective in approaching those concerns. Much of my focus is dedicated to clients who are experiencing symptoms of trauma, depression, anxiety, and adjustment difficulties. In addition, I have provided community outreach services and education, CISM services, and disaster response to various communities. My goal is to create a safe space in which people can gain insight, process their experiences, and grow as individuals. I draw on a person-centered and strength-based approach to accomplish this goal and utilize evidence-based practices such as cognitive-behavioral therapy, mindfulness, and solution-focused therapy. Coming in to see a therapist can be daunting, but it is often a powerful first step on the journey. I value the importance of working with individuals to acquire skills, enrich their lives, and create an overall sense of well-being.
