About My Clients

Working with adolescents and adults as they experience pivotal life changes provides me with the unique opportunity to help individuals identify their own personal ambitions and set goals to reach them. I seek to provide a safe and welcoming environment for individuals from all walks of life, with a specific focus for members of the LGBTQ+ community.

My Background and Approach

I received my Bachelor’s Degree from Rowan University in 2013 and my Masters in Social Work from Stockton University in 2017. I am currently earning a Certificate in Applied Educational Neuroscience, which skills I hope to use in conjunction with trauma treatment. As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I have worked with adolescents, adults, and families using a variety of treatment modalities to reach their goals. I understand that treatment must be individualized and therefore the chosen treatment modality must be individualized as well. In my practice I have become highly skilled in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Functional Family Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy, and Psychoanalysis. I am certified in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and have helped individuals work through both simple and complex trauma experiences which has allowed me to see a large reduction in trauma symptoms.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Through my experiences with individuals in the LGBTQ+ community and their family members, I have been able to guide individuals and families through difficult conversations and decisions. Maternal mental health is another area of focused concentration where I provide specialized support. Everyone needs hope, guidance, and encouragement. I will help you to feel empowered by sharing practical tools and techniques that facilitate positive growth. Therapy can be a healing and life-changing experience, which is beneficial for everyone. Call or email me today to schedule your appointment. I return EVERY call and email.
