18 years of experience

I am a Licensed Clinical Social work with my Doctorate in Social Work from Rutgers University and a Master's in Social Work from University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I have 18 years of clinical practice. I am licensed in NJ for in-person/telehealth and telehealth only in ME, VA, VT, DE, ID.

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

In our first session, the focus will be on establishing a rapport, learning about your past experiences, current supports. We will then delve into the reasons you sought out therapy and start working on creating a tailored plan on how to best meet your goals.

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

I am an empathic, compassionate, and genuinely invested clinician who wants to empower you to regain a sense of well-being. Not only will you be able to talk about what's bothering you, but I can help you manage your stressors by teaching coping skills and mindfulness techniques from evidence-based approaches such as ACT, CBT, SBFT, and CPT.

My treatment methods

Acceptance and commitment (ACT)

I often use Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) in my practice, but I pull from multiple cognitive-based therapies. With ACT, we'll look at how your thoughts and feelings affect your emotions and experience. We will also work to identify your values and how to best align your goals to live in alignment with your values.

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioral looks at how in a situation our thoughts can create us to feel and react. We look at how to identify negative thoughts patterns, challenging those thought patterns and how to replace them into a more balanced view of the world.
