I am a family and marriage therapist licensed in New Jersey with over 8 years of experience working as a mental health counselor. I have my Masters in Counseling from William Paterson University. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, ODD, and ADHD. I have also worked in crisis counseling.
My therapy style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic, and client centered therapies. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. My goal is to help you be your best self.
It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

Very helpful, listens, and is non judgemental. She's everything you want in a therapist and I'm thankful to have had her for the time I have.
