I am a licensed Psychotherapist in the state of New Jersey and have provided therapy services for 25+ years. I am also a certified Clinical Telemental Health Provider and a certified Integrative Mental Health Professional. I use a compassionate, strengths-based, and integrative approach and respect a client's self-determination. I conduct therapy in a collaborative fashion and I tailor it to a client's individual needs.
I draw from different theoretical frameworks. This allows me to help clients with varying struggles. I have helped clients with a variety of issues including depression, anxiety, trauma, low self-esteem, stress, burnout, ADHD, grief, women’s issues, relationship and marital difficulties, general life transition challenges, and career development.

Being and walking in nature.
Currently, I don't have any pets but as a child I had a dog that I loved. I remember the first day that my father brought him home and surprised me; he was hiding him behind his back and I cried tears of joy when I saw him.
