This is a very difficult time for our world as we experience this collective trauma. Anxiety, grief and loss are very real for many of us right now. Whether you already struggle with mental health symptoms or find yourself experiencing new feelings of anxiety, fear or disconnect, I can guide you in processing and gaining insight into troublesome thoughts, new sensations and range of emotions. I consider myself a client centered and relational therapist. I believe in the importance of building a strong therapeutic relationship in a safe environment in order to achieve meaningful growth.
I graduated from RCNJ with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and received my Master of Social Work from Rutgers University. I hold Certificates in Gerontology and Clinical Supervision. I also completed a Gerontology Fellowship Program at Rutgers University. My work experience includes hospitals, private practice and assisted living and nursing facilities.
I utilize techniques from various approaches including mindfulness based cognitive behavioral therapies, somatic and mind-body approaches. I treat adults and geriatrics suffering from various mental health disorders such as anxiety, depression, trauma, memory loss, adjustment disorders, bipolar, OCD, chronic pain, relationship issues, grief and loss.
