About

I believe that every person has the potential to create positive change in their life. Often many things get in way to achieve those goals, such trauma, depression, anxiety and fear. Far too often we struggle internally and not knowing where to turn. When life gets hard it is always wonderful to have someone there to help walk alongside with you through the hardships in life. My goal is to make this therapeutic experience as pleasing and positive for you. I am here to guide you through those hard patches along the way based on your needs.
I am Licensed Profession Counselor in the state of New Jersey. I am certified in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I have specialized training in trauma, PTSD, sexual abuse, domestic violence, family/relationships issues, grief and life transitions. I enjoy working with teens, adults, families and couples.
Asking for help can be difficult decision to make. With nearly 11 years of experience working with children, teens, adults and families I respect the uniqueness of each client from all different backgrounds and belief systems. You will find a place of safety and no judgments. I am looking forward to meeting you.
