About My Clients

Making the decision to reach out for help isn't easy. Finding the right counselor can seem impossible. You just want to start feeling better and plugged back into your life. There seem to be so many obstacles to finding strength and resilience to get through each day. You want to connect with yourself again but you are not sure where to start. You don't have to keep feeling this way- let's rediscover your strength.

My Background and Approach

I specialize in helping Adults and Seniors/Older Adults overcome troubling feelings and symptoms. My areas of practice include Grief and Loss Counseling, Adult Trauma Counseling, Caregiver Support Counseling and Senior/Older Adult Counseling. I provide individual and group therapy online and in-person (when safe). My goal is to help you feel supported, heard and understood. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with Certificates in Aging, and Trauma Response and Crisis Intervention from Rutgers University. I hold a Masters Degree in Social Work (MSW) and a Masters Degree in Public Administration (MPA). I am a lifelong learner and recently received a certification in Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) which is a therapy that supports healing traumatic memories and brings resolution to troubling symptoms. I also have training and experience running support groups.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Through my own life experience, I have witnessed first-hand the benefits of therapy. I remember being in your shoes and feeling nervous about finding the right person to help. I look forward to meeting you and seeing if I am the right fit. I have been drawn to Trauma therapy because I never felt that my husband got the trauma treatment he needed after 9/11. He worked in the World Trade Center that day and suffered for many years with symptoms of trauma, anxiety, and depression before finally finding the right therapy. I was able to use my Trauma training recently as I served as a front-line worker during the Covid-19 pandemic and offered support groups for my co-workers. My other focus is on serving the Senior community as a therapist at the Senior Center. For the past five years, I also worked as a Social Worker in a nursing home setting, helping individuals and families navigate dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, and other age-related diseases. Please reach out if you feel I can help.
