I have worked as a therapist for several years in different settings - as a clinical supervisor for master's level therapists, owner of my private practice, working in school settings, and in the child welfare community. I am very good at connecting with people where they are in their journey and helping them from there. I would have to call myself more eclectic, which means I draw from different modalities of therapy when needed by the client. So when we try one thing and it does not help, or the client is not receptive, we try something else.

I believe that most people who seek counseling are not "crazy." Rather they are individuals who have life problems, and who have decided to do something about them. They seek to improve their lives, and are willing to take charge, rather than life happen to them. These are people who seek to learn the wisdom with all the experiences in their lives. I work with individuals with relationship issues; teaching clients how to forgive; teaching clients how to make use of mind/body techniques with health issues.

We all need help from time to time. I envision my practice as a mental health community where all people are capable of change. Far too often, people are seen as deficient and lacking what it takes to be healthy and happy. I understand that everyone is unique and different and that people are shaped by their experiences and circumstances. You are the expert in your life, and I am just here to assist you. You have the answers within you. Sometimes we just need a little help to eliminate negative thoughts and destructive behavior that can become an obstacle in our lives.

I believe that healing from mental illness is a process that takes time, patience, and compassion for yourself. My approach to therapy is that as a client, you should be provided space to guide the work, fostering self-empowerment, identity development, and discovering what will work for you. My goal is to create a partnership with my clients while bringing in my knowledge about psychological care. Currently, I am providing virtual sessions or in person sessions at our Burr Rudge office, and I am accepting clients across the lifespan for trauma disorders, mood disorders, personality disorders, and/or preventive care.

Counseling is a collaborative process in which you should feel supported in navigating life's roadblocks, stressors, and transitions. The counseling relationship is a unique experience that propels individual flourishing by providing a safe and nurturing environment in which you can develop and practice skills to cultivate resiliency and personal growth. I believe in strength-based counseling, in which individual strengths and resources are developed and utilized to facilitate well-being and client collaboration to promote and achieve personal goals. The framework I utilize favors a cognitive approach with behavioral, mindfulness, and psychodynamic interventions to address specific areas of distress.
