My Approach to Helping

First of all- If you are feeling overwhelmed and lost right now, you are not alone. I see you. And I am glad that you are taking this step. There are so many difficult things happening around us and it is understandable if it feels like too much to handle sometimes. Perhaps you are making it through the days, but each night you are feeling exhausted and emotionally drained. Whether your struggles feel brand new, or they have been happening for quite some time- you do not have to face them alone.

I know that your life story is truly unique and I will take the time to get to know yours so that, together, we can help you find your strength and healing. I especially enjoy working with clients on both their personal struggles and how their relationships are impacted by these struggles. Parenting roles, family relationships, and child and adolescent development are my areas of expertise. I know that, even with the best intentions, relationships can be difficult to navigate, especially when life circumstances are getting in the way. In therapy, I strive to offer a safe and comfortable place for you to rediscover your strength, while also helping you find the tools to cope when it feels like too much too bear. I will be there to hear your story, support you, and explore a new path forward.

More Info About My Practice

River Vale Psychology Clinic is a small, private-owned clinic that focuses on wellness and personal, therapeutic care. We strive to provide a comfortable and safe environment for our clients to heal from difficult life experiences and emotions, while also empowering them to take charge of their lives and wellness. Holistic, strengths-based, and collaborative care are essential to our practice.

Because the therapy couch is not for everyone, our therapy office offers a range of seating options and is meant to make you feel “at-home” when you visit. Distance options are also available and will continue to be available long-term.

Feel free to also check out our Provider page on our website ( for more information about our other River Vale clinicians, Kelsey and Kendall!

Groups I Work With

    I especially enjoy working with clients on their own personal struggles and how their relationships are impacted by these struggles. Adjusting to parenting roles, family relationships, and experiences throughout life transitions are my areas of expertise. I also focus on managing the burnout and stress that can come from trying to balance too many things.
