About Me

Hello! Welcome to Better Help! This is a judgment free setting that promotes the safety and wellbeing of clients who seek to address the different challenges and barriers they may be experiencing. When beginning this journey, it is important that you find the person that best fits your needs, this is essential to your treatment progress. To better help you decide I want to tell you a little about myself so that you can decide if I may be a good fit for you.

I am a licensed clinical social worker in New Jersey with over 12 years of social service and more than 4 years of experience working as a mental health therapist. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, trauma, and LGBTQ+ issues. I aim to be honest and direct with my clients throughout their time with me and appreciate the feedback given. For the last 4+ years I have also worked in a psychiatric emergency room, assisting people who are amid a mental health crisis.

I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, providing a safe and judgment free space to explore the difficulties you are facing. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, person centered, psychodynamic, strengths based, and rational-emotive therapy. While these forms of therapy are my preferences, together we will determine the best treatment plan for you and your specific needs. I am also able to make adjustments in order to establish the most comfortable treatment space for you. Sessions can be conducted in several different ways including by video, messaging, and phone. My meeting times vary, however most of my availability is in the evening. I do have availability on weekends and check my messages regularly.

It takes a lot of bravery to seek out help and I congratulate you on making it this far. If you are ready to get to work and feel that I am the appropriate therapist for you I look forward to having the opportunity to accompany you through your journey.
