12 years of experience

I have been a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) since 2018. My experience in the behavioral health field began in 2010 with work in various settings: Group housing, therapeutic support within a preschool setting, Intensive Outpatient (IOP), Partial Hospitalization (PHP), and outpatient counseling. I earned my Master’s degree in Counseling from Seton Hall University. I am also trained in trauma-informed care. I seek to create a safe, calming environment for all of my clients.

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

First session is considered a psychobiological intake. I will take current and historical information about the client to get a full picture of the case. Then I explain to clients what to expect in a session with me. I then answer any questions they may have.

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