14 years of experience
Solution oriented

Hi! I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor based in Connecticut. I have a master's degree from Saint Joesph College. I have been practicing for 12 years. I'm creative, I can be direct, and I encourage the client in finding the solution to their problem. I offer a nonjudgmental environment allowing you to express your thoughts and feelings freely. I help individuals who are stuck in life get to a better state in life. Collaboratively we will work together, as I provide a safe, trusting, confidential, and therapeutic environment allowing you to be the expert of your life as I act as a guide in helping you to reach your full potential.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

In our first session together, we'll start with brief introductions, then dive into the specific challenges you're facing. This will help me create a tailored plan for us to work through in follow-up sessions. I will also gather and review background history. We will design a treatment on how we can work together to help you reach your goals and find happiness.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

Working in the field for some years now have allowed me to be a great listener and to show compassion and empathy. I'm a caring, warm, compassionate, honest, and attentive to their concerns and issues. I can provide a caring supportive relationship.
