“Owning our story and loving ourselves through that process is the bravest thing that we will ever do.”- Brené Brown
I provide a warm, safe, non-judgmental space for people to explore their feelings & needs and develop healthy coping skills which help to provide a sense of wellness, peace, and healing. I am committed to building a genuine and comfortable relationship with my clients. My style of psychotherapy is eclectic and driven by empathy and unconditional positive regard for the client.
Clients who work with me report:
Improvement in ability to set boundaries and communicate assertively.
Feeling safe to explore all areas of life including gender identity, sexuality, martial/relationship issues, work/school stress, self-esteem & body image issues., family of origin issues including childhood trauma.
Building mastery in self-soothing, safety and grounding skills.
Increase in relationship satisfaction and self-compassion.
Greater self-awareness and improved confidence to be their authentic selves.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in NJ and a member of the NASW-NJ chapter. I earned my undergraduate degree in Social Work from Rutgers University, and then went on to complete my Masters in Social Work at Monmouth University. After graduate school I began working in a Partial Hospitalization/Intensive Outpatient Program where I provided both individual and group therapy to teens and adults struggling with mental health and substance abuse disorders.
My clinical experience has been working with individuals, couples and families struggling with many diverse issues. Some examples of these are: substance abuse/addiction, ADHD, autism, depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety, eating disorders, trauma, gender dysphoria, stress/anger management, work/school stress, relationship conflict/poor communication skills, grief/loss, self-injurious behaviors, identity exploration, low self-esteem and/or life changes.
I have a strong passion for working with individuals living with mood/anxiety disorders, low self-esteem, gender dysphoria, childhood trauma, chronic illness/pain and those identifying as neurodiverse i.e., ADHD and/or autism.
I look forward to supporting you on your journey to wellness. Please give the office a call for a free 15-minute consultation.
