Are you or your child struggling with moodiness, emotional reactivity, impulsivity or focus? Do you or your child have difficulty setting goals and consistently achieving them? Do you or your child WANT to do things right, but inevitably mess up? I specialize in helping people like you- people who mean well and want to do good- but somehow just "can't" be who they want to be. It is so painful to feel inadequate inside... and even more painful to watch your child feel that way... My current work as a school counselor and background in addictions has given me a unique perspective on how to help children and teens thrive.

Are you navigating challenges associated with gender identity, sexuality, or relationships and looking for somebody to talk to who understands? Or maybe you are coming to therapy for help with other challenges and would feel more comfortable with a therapist who is part of the LGBTQ+ community. Either way, I am here to provide a warm, supportive, and collaborative space, where you feel safe to discuss and explore the things that are most important to you. It is often difficult to recognize the behaviors or thought patterns keeping us stuck.

I know that life is made up of multiple problems and inevitably we all have moments of difficulty. However, it is not necessary to go through it alone. I believe that support is essential, understanding is a requirement, and validation is helpful when life has presented us with challenges. That is what I am trained to deliver, an environment where you will be able to openly address vulnerability without fear of judgment or being shamed. My hope is that when working together, one can achieve the goal of reaching their most complete self.

What type of Clifton mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Clifton?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
