About me

I have always had a deep affection for the field of Human Services since the day my siblings came to me seeking advice for whatever problems they had. That personal experience led me to peruse my affection for counseling.

My educational credentials consist of a Master’s in Human Services, License Professional Counselor in both New Jersey & Pennsylvania, and a National Certified Counselor. Additionally, I have extensive training and experience in providing holistic personal development through behavior modification to individuals from all walks of life.

For more than 30 years, I have been blessed with opportunities to provide therapeutic counseling in systems such as: Child Welfare, Criminal Justice, Educational, Cooperate sector, and Military Family Life (all branches). This interaction has provided me with impeccable communication and engagement skills. My eclectic treatment approach is distinct, genuine, and personable using Cognitive Behavioral and Client Centered Therapy. My energetic personality coupled with a sense of humor has always allowed me to engage the most resistant client.

I have come to realize in any therapeutic counseling relationship, to effectively correct thinking and behavioral patterns that produce life long change, the client must be empowered how everything starts and ends with the individual. As a Therapist, I am the instrument that provides a genuine safe space for you to be you while welcoming change inch by inch with the belief, “All things work together for an abundance of good”.

Together, Let’s Do This!!!!

I've spent one year with my therapist. I always look forward to our sessions as it gives me an outlet to share my feelings, concerns, and sometimes to just vent. Paula has been extremely professional, personable, kind and understanding. I'm really thankful to have come in contact with Paula.

Paula is amazing. She listens and asks deep questions. She is very compassionate but pushes me to try to understand what I want and need. I would strongly recommend her to anyone.

Paula has done a fantastic job of giving me more confidence in my life but also providing a safe place to unpack traumas that I’ve been holding in for far too long. Her kind but focused demeanor has helped me a lot in achieving a better relationship with myself and the things I want to accomplish.
