I received my bachelor’s degree in psychology from Monmouth University. I then earned my master’s degree in mental health counseling at Barry University where I interned as a mental health counselor at a local homeless shelter. I have worked with a variety of populations and have conducted both couples therapy and individual therapy sessions as well as facilitated a multitude of group therapy sessions. I use tenets of cognitive behavioral therapy, narrative therapy, and client-centered therapy to create an integrated approach to the therapeutic process. As a firm believer in unconditional positive regard when working with clients, I look to create an open, honest, and positive environment for my clients to thrive and grow. PLEASE REACH OUT VIA EMAIL or PHONE CALL BEFORE YOUR SESSION FOR A 15 MINUTE CONSULTATION. Thank you!
What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?
My job in this process is to remove obstacles to growth. As your therapist, I will never judge or challenge the emotions that you feel. Our goal will be to identify the thoughts and behaviors that are causing some of the struggles you are having in your life and restructure them. With your willingness to implement some new coping skills and behaviors, I believe that we can make great strides in helping you find some peace and happiness in your life.
Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.
I believe that meeting a client where they are and working with their strengths is one of the most effective parts of my therapeutic approach.
