7 years of experience

Hello! Welcome to my page. I'm grateful to connect with you on the path towards emotional well-being. I earned my degree from Seton Hall University (go pirates!). I have worked in various settings: Detox/Residential for those struggling with addiction & PHP/IOP/OP for those struggling with mental health. Believing in self-discovery & growth, I guide individuals through life's challenges & help them embrace change. Please note I am a NJ therapist & can only see patients who are located in NJ.

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

In our first session, we will go over any questions you may have. I strive for open and transparent communication, so we can do our best work together. I will also have intake questions to ask, and of course will create the safe space for you to share your answers.

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

I have found that the most successful and fulfilling experiences in therapy come from having a collaborative approach. That's why I am wholeheartedly committed to making every session with patients feel like a true team effort. It brings me such joy to be there for patients, supporting them through both the highs and lows of their journey. Witnessing their growth and resilience is truly rewarding.

My treatment methods

Daialectical Behavior (DBT)

Through my diverse experience, I have honed my approach to therapy. I have an approach that combines elements of Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, & Person-Centered Therapy. This allows me to tailor treatment to a person's unique goals. I have found that utilizing several modalities has served others well. Going on this journey requires courage & self-compassion. Together, we'll navigate through life's challenges & gain insight to lasting positive change.
