I have been in the counseling field for over 15 years, and for over 12 years, I have been in private practice. I obtained my bachelor's degree from Rutgers University and my master's degree from Fordham University. I have also received additional training from the Psychoanalytic Center of Northern New Jersey. Other experience I have includes treating clients at an outpatient and a partial hospital setting, counseling patients in crisis in a hospital emergency room, and providing consultation services for school districts. In addition, I have provided supervision for other therapists.

I am a Certified Clinical Anxiety Treatment Professional. I also treat depression and low self-esteem, and I help people who are experiencing work, relationship and parenting difficulties. I utilize interventions proven to be effective, and my clients learn coping and communication skills, and more effective ways to deal with their stressors.

Many clients have told me that I am warm, easy to open up to, and very helpful. Therapy identifies what is holding my clients back from getting what they need. Through exploration and collaboration in a safe environment, solutions are found that relieve symptoms and make my clients feel better overall.
