“The ache for home lives in all of us, the safe place where we can go as we are and not be questioned.”  Maya Angelou

I believe that a safe and trusting relationship with the therapist is the key to change in therapy. It takes courage and the ability to be vulnerable to look at ourselves honestly.  I will provide a safe, welcoming, and non-judgmental atmosphere. We will work together to identify the obstacles that are blocking your growth.  I will be your guide in trying to help you increase your awareness of what your needs are so that the changes you desire in your life can occur.

I began my career as an RN and obtained a BSN in Nursing at William Paterson University. I have over 30 years of experience working in acute and chronic healthcare settings. I understand the important connection between the mind and the body which is one of the reasons I returned to William Paterson University to obtain a Masters in Professional Mental Health Counseling. I completed a diverse internship at a non-profit mental health agency in West Orange, a Head Start program in Clifton, and at a pre-k to fourth grade charter school in Newark. I have experience working with children and adolescents who have anger management issues, social skills difficulties, grief and loss, depression, Autism spectrum, and issues at school and home. I have also worked with families using structural family therapy, couples using emotional focused therapy, and individual person centered therapy for adults with depression and anxiety. I recently completed a certificate course in Dialectical Behavior Therapy. The main goal of DBT is to teach clients skills to cope with stress, regulate emotions, and improve relationships with others.

In my spare time, I enjoy biking, hiking with my dog, and spending time with my husband and son. I enjoy visiting NYC to see Broadway shows, trying different restaurants, traveling to Vermont and Colorado, reading, seeing a movie, and eating anything with pumpkin in it. I like listening to all types of music and enjoy incorporating music, movies, and books in a therapy session.
