As a clinician my goal is to provide a safe, non-judgmental environment for every individual. I aim to help clients learn how to manage their mental health effectively and work towards their personal goals while prioritizing their mental and emotional well-being. Through the work that I have done in outpatient, intensive outpatient, and partial hospitalization levels of care, I recognize that there are many circumstances that can affect one’s mental health. These areas include depression, anxiety, mood disorders, trauma, anger management, life transitions, LGBTQIA + issues, and substance use disorders.

I specialize in treating clients with interpersonal conflicts, relationship issues, mood disturbances, women's health issues, and am LGBTQ friendly.
*I am currently not accepting any new Patients*Depression and anxiety is not a sign of weakness, but can instead be a sign that you have been strong for too long. I am a supportive and compassionate therapist. The collaborative approach between therapist and client brings about the most successful outcomes. I have been told that I am extremely easy to relate to and am never judgmental. My goal in working with clients is to help them to identify what changes they would like to make and together form a plan to implement those changes. Additionally, I will assist you in developing healthier coping strategies.

Depression, anxiety and problems in relationships often cause deep anguish and pain, just getting by each day can be difficult. We often struggle in silence, believing things will never get better or that no one could understand. Well-meaning friends and family urge us to “just get over it”-but that often that makes us feel alone. I believe every person possesses the potential to transform their life. With the right support and ability to learn healthy coping skills, we will work together in a collaborative process to create the change you have been waiting for. Therapy is a place just for you, to be heard, validated and supported.

Are you reaching your breaking point? Something needs to change. Now. “Why won’t the constant criticism in my head stop?” It’s your voice beating you up for not being good enough. Not doing well enough. Not accomplishing the basic simple things that you KNOW come so easy to everyone else. In fact, you keep looking around at all the other parents who seem to have it together and all the other spouses who are getting along so well, and everyone else who seems to have their stuff together. But for you even the little things feel just impossible and overwhelming.

How does my child get along with his/her peers? Is my child sensitive to the feelings of others? Can my child wait and control their impulses? How aware is my child of his/her feelings? Can my child respect others "space," make new friends, maintain a conversation and are they really listening when someone is speaking? These are just a few questions my clients ask themselves before seeking my services. I have years of experience helping children and young adults who are grappling with these areas. Feel free to visit my website for more information regarding social skills training.

Your journey to assemble this tool box does not have to happen alone. I can provide a nurturing space where you can gain insight into unwanted patterns of behavior, identify and challenge unhelpful automatic thinking patterns and get in touch with your innate strength.

I work with children, adolescents, and adults in individual and group settings. I have experience with crisis work, long-term therapy, and short-term as well. We will start where we you feel the need to take your "single step" and the "journey" will go at the pace that you set.

What type of Scotch Plains 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 or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Scotch Plains?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering 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.
