Hello and thank you for visiting my profile.
I am a New Jersey Licensed Professional Counselor with 18 years of experience. I work
with individuals and couples who are dealing with issues such as depression, anxiety, relationship issues, stage of life issues, trauma, loss, stress, and eating disorders. I enjoy working with clients experiencing recent issues as well as those who may have longer standing struggles. I appreciate the difficult times we have all been living in and I am aware of the toll this has taken on mental health. My counseling style is empathic and nonjudgmental. I believe a strong therapeutic relationship is essential to effective work. I strive to create a safe environment in which clients feel free to express their thoughts and feelings, go at their own pace and together develop new insights and ways of leading a fulfilling life. I draw upon various theoretical approaches such as interpersonal, psychodynamic, family systems, experiential, and cognitive behavioral therapy. I'm glad you reached out for help and I hope to meet you!

I was very satisfied with the treatment I received with Sandy and I would continue treatment with her without hesitation if I should need to in the future.
