About me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in New Jersey with over 25 years of experience working as a counselor and psychotherapist. My college education consists of a Master of Arts degree in Counseling as well as a Master's degree in Social Work. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including: anxiety, depression, family of origin issues, career challenges, as well as a variety of mental health issues. I have also helped many people who have experienced the pain of grief or loss in their lives.
My therapy style is accepting, kind, warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with compassion, dignity and respect. My approach combines Client-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (I have CBT Certification), Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy along with a variety of other modalities. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique needs.
When I entered the field of counseling many years ago, it was my aim to fulfill my life’s mission: to help others in need.
I have had the opportunity to do so over the years and I have received gratitude and thanks from those I’ve been privileged to help.
I look forward to helping you with whatever challenges you are facing.
