16 years of experience
One Park Place,...

In therapy, I strive to create a supportive environment where every individual feels heard & understood. I am a New York State Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Credentialed Alcohol and Substance Abuse Counselor working in the field for the past 15 years. Throughout my career I have worked with individuals of all ages for a variety of reasons. I have experience working as counselor and program manager in an outpatient clinic for substance use which has given me the opportunity to train other therapists. Other experience includes school counseling, outpatient mental health, and inpatient chemical dependency.

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

Our first session will consist of introductions and the reasons for attending treatment. We will then social a treatment plan and goals for therapy.

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

I provide an empathetic, warm, creative, and non-judgmental approach to therapy. I am committed to helping clients heal and regain a sense of control and well-being in their lives. I offer skills to change thoughts/behaviors that aren't aiding in your progress within your healing journey.
