About me

I am a Licensed Psychologist providing therapy to adults in NJ, NY VT, FL, and CT. Every person has different hurdles to conquer in life and might need assistance along the way. That said, I work with my patients to form a safe and comfortable treatment environment to accomplish their treatment goals. When working with patients, I believe one of the most important factors is the therapist-patient relationship. I take the time to build a solid therapeutic relationship so I can best serve my patients.

I provide mainly cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and person-centered therapy. To tailor therapy to each patient, I pull from additional evidence-based intervention areas in which I have training. Additional areas include mindfulness-based interventions, positive psychology, LGBTQIA+, and trauma-focused cognitive-behavioral therapy (TF-CBT).

I encourage you to reach out so we can discuss your needs and find the right path for you.
