In private practice, I work with these as well as everyday worries, difficulties with relationships, trans issues, spiritual exploration, and healing trauma.
I am an experienced licensed clinical social worker trained at the IFS institute. I take an integrative approach to therapy, emphasizing healing mind, body, and soul. I believe that therapy should be enjoyable and non-judgmental. I am told that I create a collaborative and compassionate environment where my clients and I are able to tap into deep inner wisdom, provide insight, and apply concrete methods to heal and move forward. The result? Becoming brave enough to build a deep connection to your truest self and live authentically. Spirituality is incorporated, as desired.

I am LGBTQ + inclusive and affirming of different identities, cultures, and religions.
Being a human can be difficult, and these are especially difficult times. You may be feeling overwhelmed, stressed, or burned out and unmotivated. You may already have a psychiatric diagnosis and are looking for support in your path to feeling better. Whether you’re struggling with relationships, anxiety, depression, issues from your past, or feelings you don’t even understand, working with a therapist can help you make sense of what’s going on for you right now, figure out what you want in your life, and learn how to make it happen.

Are you finding yourself avoiding situations? Missing out on things you used to enjoy? Anxiety can take up a lot of energy and impede life. Therapy can be many things: to explore past events, figure out what is currently going on or where you’d like to be, or it can simply be a safe space where you can express yourself without any judgment. You don’t have to do this alone. Let’s explore this together and restore these aspects. I hold a graduate degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and have supported various populations through challenges.

What type of East Brunswick 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 East Brunswick?
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.
