I am a Licensed Social worker, working towards becoming a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I obtained my Master’s degree from Temple University in 2014 where I specialized in mental health. I believe that everyone has the capacity to succeed in life and reach their full potential, but living in a world full of high expectations and pressure can leave you feeling lost and confused in your mind and body. The pain you endure through trauma, loss and grief can cause you questioning the purpose of life and how can you cope.
What if life could be as enjoyable as it was prior to your addiction or eating disorder? Being isolated and scared is a difficult place to be and an even tougher place to get yourself out of. Moving from isolation towards connection is the first step in building a life you can enjoy. Working with me will allow you time each week to step into a world without judgment and a place to work on loosening the chains which have held you in isolation. You will have a teammate whose goals will always be chosen by you. We will work together to define what freedom looks like for you and work as a team to get you there.

….Accepting new clients…. As a culturally competent couple and family therapist with extensive international experience, I enjoy working with individuals, couples, and families from all backgrounds. After more than a decade of professional experience in the field, I have a keen understanding of the complexities of the relationships we build. I focus on both the individual and the relationship unit when working with my clients. I specialize in relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma, emotional abuse/ narcissistic abuse recovery.
In my practice I really pride myself on being an open non-judgmental therapist. I want those I am working with to feel safe and able to freely discuss what may be going on in their lives. I specialize in anxiety, depression, addiction, LGTBQ, relationships and self-esteem.
Are you feeling stuck? Overwhelmed with current life circumstances? Unsure of what your next step should be? Unfortunately, many individuals get caught up in these struggles and forget to reach out for help. This can lead to feelings of anxiety, depression, and overall dissatisfaction with life. Working with me will provide you with a safe, non-judgmental space where you can tell your story, gain insight into how it has impacted you, and create a new reality that is more fulfilling. We will work together to define what that life looks like for you and create a plan to get you there.
Are you or a loved one struggling with addiction, depression or anxiety? Do you feel that you have nowhere to turn? Are you ready to end the rollercoaster of emotions? You have options. You have choices. You can take your life back and reach your full potential!! Whatever the roadblock that exists in your life--addiction, anxiety, depression, and relationships-allow me to help you on your journey in readjusting your path toward wellness. We will discuss your concerns in a safe and non-judgmental environment and then work collaboratively to establish a holistic approach and plan to help you reach your full potential.
I see therapy as a unique opportunity for people to learn more about themselves: their pain, fears, struggles, strengths, hopes, and dreams. In doing so, we can work to overcome past pains and progress towards the life you have always wanted. I am committed to working with individuals as they take this journey of discovery and change. I seek to form authentic relationships with clients in order to create a comfortable and safe environment.
My ideal client would be an individual who has had life changes (big or small) and is willing to put in the time to work on finding new norms for their lives. It may not always be an easy task, but I believe that if we can put in the work, it will all pay off and lead to healthier outcomes. In addition, I like to have clients who are open to working with me and want a better quality of life.
I enjoy working with clients who are transitioning to the next stage of their lives or want to set new life/career goals. The next step could be transitioning from high school to college, beginning a new relationship, or a new career/job. I like to support the client with exploring these new goals, help build confidence/self-esteem to take those first steps towards them, and re-evaluate goals if necessary. I find that these transitions come with a lot of anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues that can hold clients back, which I like to explore, build solutions, and help them realize that goals are achievable.
My ideal client would be someone who is aware that they need help. They are also prepared and open to doing the necessary work to address their issue. They understand that therapy is a process and not something that can be completed overnight. They understand that their previous methods have failed and are willing to try again with me.
I can't say that I have an ideal client, as every client presents with their own unique set of strengths and challenges. I find myself drawn to clients whose lives have been significantly negatively impacted by the systems they belong to. Aiding clients with the tools and resources to work on breaking those generational cycles of trauma or poverty, is one of the most rewarding experiences I can have as a therapist. I truly believe that all clients have the ability to overcome whatever challenges they may be experiencing and achieve their personal goals. My only job is to help them develop the tools to do so.
My patients are people who are open to new ways of interpreting their struggles and motivated to make changes. Their goals for treatment would include: improving their independence, increasing their self-esteem, learning to communicate assertively, and gaining insight into the mental health struggles. They would want to improve their outlook on life and improve their relationship with themselves and the healthy people in their lives.
My ideal client is prepared to initiate changes in their life to promote wellness. They are prepared to process internal and external contributors to their mood, discuss options for improvement, and practice healthier skills that will assist in achieving their personal goals. My ideal client is internally motivated and desires emotional balance from concerns such as anxiety, depression, impaired self-esteem, trauma, and interpersonal conflict. They arrive to treatment with goals in mind, and will actively work to experience relief of distressing symptoms.
I imagine my ideal client is someone who is motivated to be in treatment for mental health and substance use. This client is coming to treatment to address their anxiety and depression symptoms and they also struggle with alcohol use. Ideally, this person's goal is to improve their quality of life by learning healthy coping skills, communication skills, and boundary setting skills and they want to remain sober from substances. I imagine this client is entering treatment because they feel they are ready to do the work and could benefit from talk therapy.
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.
My ideal client is someone who comes to therapy in a time of need. They might be experiencing anxiety due to life changes and transitions or they might be experiencing symptoms of anxiety for the first time and be concerne as to where the anxiety came from. The client might be processing loss or grief from a loved one or past friendships and or relationships. My ideal client will have needs such as needing to identify coping skills to get through life stressors, assistance with reaching goals. As a therapist I would be able to provide the client with a objective perspective to bounce their ideas and situations off of.
I am a licensed professional counselor that has been working in behavioral health for over 20 years. I am a lifelong resident of South Jersey and obtained my Bachelors and Masters degrees from La Salle University in Philadelphia.
I identify as a BIPOC and love working with minorities in addition to people from all walks of life. As a clinician with mental health issues myself (yes, we have issues too), I have a unique understanding of being neurodiverse. On the other hand, If you are codependent and hate that you are that way, but there is an inner child wound that has not been healed, let me step in and guide you to being a healthier individual, ready for love.
