Seeking therapy may feel like a difficult step that can create feelings of failure or shame; however, seeking therapy is the first step to discovering your best self amidst any hardships you may be going through. It is okay to not be okay. It is not okay to feel like your suffering or pain has to be dealt with silently, and on your own.
In my sessions, I utilize a compassionate, non-judgmental approach to talk with you, help you understand yourself, and help you to find your best self.
I graduated from Monmouth University and fell in love with counseling. It is my dream job. With my passion and energy, I am able to hold a space for you to be vulnerable, to explore your feelings, and begin to understand who you are.
I have been very fortunate to work with great therapists and psychiatrist at Penn Medicine Princeton House Behavioral Health on the Adolescent, Young Adult, Adult, Senior Link, and Women’s units. From my experience in the field, I have been trained in both CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) and DBT (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy). I have worked with those who have been diagnosed with various mental health issues and a wide range of life transitions such as death in the family, job loss, retirement, parenthood, divorce, college issues and many more. I have been trained and have had 5 years experience facilitating both children’s and adult’s grief and loss groups.
My goal as a therapist is to hold a space where you can explore who you are amongst any hardships you may be going through-for those are the times we find out what makes our life meaningful.
