Hi! Welcome to BetterHelp, we're so glad you are here! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in NJ (LCSW) and VT (LICSW) and recently obtained my Doctor of Social Work (DSW) from Rutgers University. My approach when working with clients is meeting them right where they are in a non-judgmental way that allows for openness and a good working alliance. I encourage open dialogue and feedback so we can ensure you get the most out of the time and effort you are putting in. Most of my experience is in working with those who experienced interpersonal violence, trauma and/or abuse in their lives, or have experienced a loss of any kind (I.e. loss of a child, a job, a relationship, loved one). I use a warm, strengths based, and trauma-informed lens when working with clients. I use mindfulness practices to help cope with stress, life's challenges and transitions, depression, and anxiety. People arrive at therapy for so many different reasons, and starting the conversation is the first and most important step! I believe therapy can be enjoyable, challenging, and a time for self-exploration and personal growth!
Outside of my clinical role, I am a professor and fitness instructor. I love lattes, corny romantic comedies, flowers, ice cream, and spending time with family and friends.
I wish you the best of luck in your search for a therapist, and I look forward to supporting you on this journey!
