About Me

For the past 11 years I have had the honor in being able to do what I love and that is helping others. Having a nonjudgmental third party to talk to when having a difficulty time coping with life is helpful. Depression and Anxiety have become common in our world due to the stress we experience on a regular basis. There are many coping skills to help people work through stress. Taking the time to learn and practice them while talking to a therapist can make you mentally stronger. BECAUSE I WORK ON VIDEO I AM AVAILABLE ANYWHERE IN NEW JERSEY.
I work with clients who present with a variety of life’s issues. I have worked with people who identify with Depression, Anxiety, Traumatic Crises, Anger Management, PTSD, and other diagnoses. I have 7 years experience working with children from the age of 5 to 19. Some experience is children with anger issues, Bipolar, Oppositional Defiance Disorder. I use a person-centered approach as well as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy.
