I am a clinically trained, psychodynamically oriented psychotherapist. I received my Master’s in Social Work with an area of emphasis in mental and behavioral health from Rutgers University. I have provided psychotherapeutic services to adults in inpatient and outpatient settings. These professional experiences have allowed me to work with clients from different backgrounds, belief systems, and orientations and to better understand the unique and shared experiences that are part of the human condition.
I strive to create an open, client-centered, and non-judgmental space for clients to explore their needs, challenges, and behaviors. I utilize a variety of modalities and interventions to help clients understand the connection between the past, present, and future, with the ultimate goal of creating a future that is meaningful and fulfilling.
MSW - Social Work, Rutgers University
I believe strongly in the benefit of therapy and self-reflection and love supporting individuals in the process of seeking fulfillment and meaning. I believe in the value of better understanding oneself and the relationships, experiences, and core beliefs that shape who we are. It is incredibly rewarding to help others identify past and current patterns in an effort to create greater harmony in one's life.
I enjoy running, spending time with friends and family, and spending time on the beach and in nature.
I take time to reflect on my day, reach out to friends and family, and engage in restorative activities regularly.
I run, spend time on the beach or in nature, and spend time with friends and family to recharge and decompress.
