My Approach to Helping

I believe in the strength and resilience of the human spirit. We all have times in our lives when we encounter difficulties and need a supportive person to help guide us back to a path of healing and growth. Maybe you've experienced a recent event in your life and you are not sure how to cope with it. Or maybe something has been bothering you for quite a long time and you feel like now is the time to talk to somebody about it. I can help you find that inner strength you have so you can discover just how resilient you truly are.

In addition to mental health counseling, I have worked in the field of rehabilitation counseling in both New York and Florida for 14 years. As a Certified Rehabilitation Counselor, I understand the challenges that people with disabilities face. It has been my privilege to have played a role in counseling hundreds of individuals with unique ABILITIES in their journey toward self-sufficiency and success. Let's work together to show the world just what you are capable of!

As a vocational counselor, I am well-versed in educational and career coaching. Whether you are a transitioning high school student or an adult making a career change later in life, I can help you discover the potential within you and help you make the vocational and educational choices that are best for you.

My approach is warm and friendly and I draw from life experience, Eastern philosophies, mindful-based practices, and solid counseling theories to help you overcome whatever may be holding you back. I look forward to getting to know you.
