Depending on the concerns, treatment can include cognitive behavioral strategies, mindfulness and relaxation techniques, use of imagery, experiential exercises, homework, reading, and/or family /significant other sessions.
Living life fully and successfully is a great challenge, while coping with emotional, behavioral, or cognitive struggles. We are taught to read, write and do math in school, but where do we learn the skills to live effectively and happily? I approach psychotherapy as an educational, supportive process that occurs in a safe environment where individuals can learn the skills to meet life's challenges and gain control of their lives. Our Centers offer not only psychotherapy services, but comprehensive neuropsychological testing and treatment for learning disorders, ADHD, memory problems, concussion, and brain disorders.

My ideal client is one who is hopeful that they can achieve, overcome, or get through their concern. I know that each client is unique in their issues, needs, and goals and I don't judge those areas. Instead, I respect the client's focus and seek to understand what those are. Ideally, the client has goals that are not only in the here and now, but can be sustaining and are realistic. In addition, the needs of the client are reasonable and obtainable needs such as improving one's mood because they're sad, alleviating symptoms of anxiety that's been ongoing for weeks, or having a better relationship with a family member.

My approach is grounded in clinical science, and includes elements of CBT, ACT, DBT, & family systems.
I offer therapy and assessment for children, adolescents and adults, to address difficulties with mood, anxiety, attention, learning, emotions, or identity. I am neurodiversity-affirmative, which includes individuals who are ADHD, autistic, dyslexic, gifted, or other neurotypes. Traditional approaches often do not affirm the lived experience of neurodivergent individuals or address the emotional needs of kids who struggle with behavior problems. Through open-minded exploration and creative problem-solving, therapy can help to develop self-knowledge, confidence, acceptance, psychological flexibility, and interpersonal effectiveness.

Do you feel misunderstood? Do you have trouble communicating? As a Marriage & Family Therapist, I help couples turn their relationship around by helping them improve their communication and resolve conflicts with videos, personality tests, role plays and other tools to bring about rapid change. Do you need to talk to someone? I work with clients on relationship issues, compulsive overeating, depression and anxiety,etc. What sets me apart from other therapists is my ability to keep clients on a systematic approach to change with a focused, short term program to help them achieve their goals quickly.

My 21 years of experience as a licensed marriage and family therapist, divorce discernment counselor, spiritual guide, and hospice grief counselor has equipped me to help a wide variety of adults, teens, and couples recover from "stuckness" and depression, find deeper relational intimacy, and discern steps to move forward in their current relationship.
Are you feeling stuck in a difficult circumstance or a relational conflict? Do you find yourself limited by fear, anxiety, lack of motivation or clarity? Are you discerning whether or not to stay in a current relationship? This can be a painful space. I believe we all have access to deep, still waters within us that can guide and direct us to deeper peace and clarity. Sometimes, we struggle to access that "knowing part" of us. I have 20 years of helping guide men, women, couples, adolescents and families gain skills and find deeper, more peaceful waters in seasons of grief, anxiety, depression, divorce & couple's conflict.

While one person may benefit from CBT or DBT, another may need to develop insight, understand family stresses, integrate expectations across cultures, learn to live mindfully, or address self-defeating behavior.

As a trained psychotherapist specializing in grief, trauma and family systems, I use an eclectic mix of theories and methods that start with and focus on you -- right now, right where you are.
Are you suffering from a loss -- or losses -- in your life? Have you lost a loved one? A relationship? Are you anticipating a loss? Loss and grief can be so painful, both emotionally and physically. What was, no longer is. The people and things you believed you could count on may no longer be available. Loss and grief can feel disorienting, like the ground under you has crumbled or shifted and you no longer know what’s up or down. You might feel stuck. You might feel like nothing will be good again. Loss and grief can bring up all kinds of feelings and reactions. They’re all valid.

I wanted to get into the mental health field from a young age, as I was always surrounded by friends and family who struggled with mental health.
I am a Licensed Social Worker with a passion for decreasing the stigma surrounding mental health and promoting the health and well being of my clients. For my undergraduate degree, I moved from Central Jersey (Yes! It exists!) to South Jersey to attend Stockton University. I received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Social Work with a Minor in Behavioral Neuroscience from Stockton, and then moved on to attend graduate school in Philadelphia. I received my Master of Social Work Degree with a clinical concentration from the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Social Policy and Practice in May of 2020.

We then work together to customize a treatment plan that best fits you and works with your family and lifestyle.
We all have a general knowledge that our experiences shape who we are but to truly understand how far reaching that impact is can be life changing for some. Through my experience as a licensed clinician, I have learned how to effectively diagnose and treat the impact of trauma on a person's life. This can greatly reduce or in some cases eliminate maladjustments and significantly improve the quality of living for clients.

I meet each client with warmth and genuine curiosity as I am taught about their life experiences. Together we identify and challenge roadblocks to healthy coping, growing and thriving. I approach my therapeutic work with the ability to listen, to play and to be solutions-oriented.

With adults I find that the AEDP (Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy) as well as IFS (Internal Family Systems) Models show effectiveness.
At any stage of development, we are bound to encounter obstacles to our ability to thrive. I help clients to become proactive agents in their own process. I have worked extensively with clients across all ages to reduce symptoms, promote growth, and instill lasting change. I support children, teens, adults, and families in healing from anxiety, trauma, grief, and depression. I have a speciality in working with LGBTQIA+ individuals, especially GNC and transgender folks. I am licensed to treat people in about 25 states. This means if you relocate for college or other life circumstances, you can maintain continuity of treatment.

My experience is in working with a diverse population focusing on issues such as trauma, depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, chronic illness, interpersonal issues, grief and loss, family conflicts, and stress management.
Are you struggling with challenges that seem insurmountable? Are they causing you to feel overwhelmed, hopeless and isolated? My goal is to help you feel empowered by providing you with the tools and skills to enhance and improve your life. The therapeutic process is collaborative and should provide an environment for you to explore and identify patterns of behavior, provide clarity and seek resolution. It is important for me to create a safe and non-judgmental environment for you to be able to share your thoughts, feelings and experiences. I support you as you process and cope with stressful and traumatic life events.

My ideal client is facing challenges with past trauma. This client has suppressed their trauma but recently has difficulty sleeping, lacks motivation, is disconnected from friends, and feels empty. They have sought therapy to start addressing the needs mentioned above, but as they begin engaging with me, they realize that they have recollections of trauma endured at an early age. Additionally, this client has been unable to address this trauma with family due to difficulty communicating and impacting the family dynamics. They want to be able to talk to family members without feeling shame and also build coping skills to heal.
