Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), Motivational interviewing (MI), Solution-focused, Strengths-based
My counseling style is client-centered and collaborative. I believe that therapy is a partnership, and an important aspect of that partnership is feeling a supportive, trusting rapport with your clinician. I like to apply different techniques and aspects into therapy based on what each specific client presents with and would be helped by.
My experience includes working with children, adolescents, and adults in individual, couples, and family settings. I have assisted clients with managing their anxiety, depression, stress, family conflict, grief, and trauma. I look forward to continuing to serve those who are in need of some extra support and care.
MS - Clinical Mental Health Counseling, Monmouth University
I became a mental health professional because everyone needs some extra help and support. I enjoy being someone people trust and confide in to assist them through life. Mental health continues to carry a stigma and I enjoy helping to break that stigma down.
I love spending time with my pets, doing arts and crafts, and spending time with my family and friends.
I recently worked with an organization called Paws of War. Paws of War is based in New York and they assist with matching veterans and first responders with services animals, as well as helping to reunite service members with animals they rescued while serving overseas. I am passionate about this organization because our service members and veterans deserve as much help and support as they can receive for all they do for us.
I like to recharge by spending at least a few minutes to myself with a nice cup of coffee to reset my mind.
