My Approach to Helping
Therapy offers a place to grow. Seeking therapy is not always easy, but it’s always worthwhile. As your therapist, I hope to help yo become the person you want to be. Take control of your life. We’ll work together to tackle anything, so you can live better. I primarily use cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), but I incorporate other approaches based on the client’s needs. Let’s work at your own pace in a safe place at Portrait Health Centers.
More Info About My Practice
I have a master’s degree in clinical and counseling psychology. I graduated from William Paterson University of New Jersey’s rigorous program. I am also a licensed associate counselor skilled at working with all ages. I’ve primarily worked with adults in a mental hospital, where I gained diverse and rich clinical experience. More recently, I’ve provided in-home therapy to children. I’m eager to continue my journey as your therapist.
Self-care is vital to a healthy professional and personal life. I enjoy a variety of activities in my spare time, including cooking, baking, time with family, exercising, time with my dogs, and relaxing at the pool or beach. I also like attending professional literature and attending professional conferences to expand my knowledge.
