About My Clients

Are you having issues with children in the spectrum or those experiencing loss of any kind? Do you have teenagers struggling with relationship issues, anger, anxiety or depression? Are you as an adult suffering from these issues as well or in your marriage? I use a strength based approach that helps my clients thrive even in the midst of difficulties. My job is to equip you with tools to reduce suffering and perform at your best. Come on in to my practice!!

My Background and Approach

I have been in the mental health field for over 20 years, acquiring and providing trainings. A PhD in counseling along with years of hands-on experience working with inner city children and families helped to sharpen my ability to infuse research findings into my practice. In the process I have acquired a lot of skills that work with clients of all ages. Many are simple tools that are easy to apply and cost no extra dollar because they are at your fingertips. Our thoughts and feelings belong in us but are not us! No matter your age or degree of your disability, we work collaboratively to acquire enduring skills and emotional growth in many aspects of life.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My belief is anchored in a deep faith in the human spirit to survive. I teach others to see the individual as a person of worth and to separate him/her from the roles played because we fail time and time again in those roles. Our personhood survives the roles! I work hard to see the "you" behind the issues that brought you to therapy. I want you to know this. My heart bleeds when children are subjected to abuse, divorce of parents, parental loss at a young age or those who are developmentally delayed. For years, I joined the effort in NJ to work toward prevention of mental health issues in children and adolescents. I was one of those in NJ who first championed efforts against human trafficking. The LGBTQI population draws my interest and I am humbled to provide services to this group in my practice. I am not afraid to claim my Christian faith. I do not hold it against you if you claim no allegiance to any faith/religious groups. You are foremost a human being; awesome and prized.
