About Me

Hello and welcome! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in New Jersey. I have a master's degree from NYU Silver School of Social Work and have experience working in a variety of mental health and behavioral health settings, including inpatient psychiatric treatment, residential substance abuse treatment, and in traditional outpatient and structured outpatient services. I have extensive experience working with clients who are experiencing a range of symptoms, including depression, anxiety, OCD, sleep disturbance, life transitions, relationship/family issues, among many other things. All clients deserve to be treated with dignity, compassion, are respect, and have worked diligently to help my clients feel heard both in therapy and in their lives.

I want to help you achieve the goals you set in therapy. I believe it is important that the therapeutic process use specific, measurable skills to help make your goals achieveable. My style and approach combines several different styles, using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy Skills, Solution-Focused skills, from an Existential and Systems- & Client-Centered approach. It is important that you feel therapy is collaborative, and I will always work to respond and respect your needs as our therapeutic relationship evolves.

Courage is the persistence in the persistence in the face of adversity, and you are demonstrating a great amount of courage in taking these first steps toward changing your life. Together we can work to create happiness and joy in your life and create a life that is worth living!

I tried online counseling through another resource and was left felt with a counselor who actually needed some counseling herself. Admit it...this year is brainwashed as being difficult.
That being said, Michael is awesome. Just like chatting with a BFF. I've learned a lot and I appreciate his guidance. Thank you again, Michael.

Michael is extremely compassionate and supportive! He helps me through all of my problems and provides ways for me to approach obstacles in my life. I could not imagine these past few months without him!

a great understanding professional with no added or unnecessary pressure in any way. Very easy to understand and I can definitely feel the empathy from him.
