Hello! I'm Andrea, a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in New York State and a Licensed Professional Counselor in the Commonwealth of Virginia. I have been privileged to serve individuals, couples and families who have struggled with anxiety, depression and other life stressors for over a decade. Thank you for reaching out and inviting me into your life. As a reminder, I am licensed in New York State and the Commonwealth of Virginia; therefore, if you are not physically present in New York or Virginia, I will not be able to work with you per state regulations.
I graduated from Medaille College in 2008 and began my professional journey. My experiences include outpatient and residential counseling as well as case management. It's important for you to know that I appreciate the opportunity to work with you. My goal is to encourage, support and empower you to make the best choices for your desired outcome.
It may be helpful for you to know my style of counseling is to follow your lead. I believe that no one will ever know you as well as you know yourself. The therapeutic approaches I use include Motivational Interviewing and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. You will find that I am a compassionate warmhearted listener and avid cheerleader for change.
My current schedule allows for appointments Monday and Wednesday in the early morning through the late afternoon. On Tuesday and Thursday I am available in the early morning through the late afternoon and again in the early evening. I do not keep hours on Friday, Saturday or Sunday, as I have other professional and personal obligations. (Monday and Wednesday: 7:30am - 12:00pm AND 1:00pm-5:00pm * Tuesday and Thursday: 8:00am - 12:00pm AND 2:00pm - 5:00pm; 6:00pm - 8:00pm on Tuesdays only)
For your reference, it may be helpful to know that I do not participate in any legal cases; therefore, you may need to consider finding a different counselor if you are involved in any court proceedings, including compensation and disability cases.
I look forward to working with you!

Andrea has been a great help on my healing journey. She is open and honest with her feedback and has challenged my self perception in a positive way. I feel safe to be myself and share anything without fear of judgment. I had times where I have doubted the process and if this helped me and I’m glad I talked about it with Andrea and have stuck it out. Andrea has been a great support.

Andrea is great - super easy and down to earth to work with. I appreciated her sense of humor and ability to offer useful insight from our conversations. This was my first experience working with a therapist and I definitely benefited from the safe and zero pressure space that Andrea provided. Thanks again!
