I feel privileged to have had the experience of working with clients who are part of the LGBTQIA+ community. I pride myself on consistently educating and researching the most up to date practice skills. My goal is to provide a safe and warm environment in which I can empower my clients and help them face any challenge.
As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, my purpose is to provide a safe and accepting environment where we can work together towards your goals. Over the course of my education I have earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from Ramapo College of New Jersey (2009) and a Masters in Social Work from Fordham University (2012). I have cultivated my skills as a social worker through my experience working in hospitals and schools; assisting individuals and their families with difficulties including palliative care, postpartum anxiety/depression, body-image issues, bullying, and more. I am most proud of my work with children diagnosed with cancer and blood disorders, where I was privileged to support and uplift them during an exceptionally vulnerable time in their lives.
I believe therapy is most effective when the therapist utilizes a variety of methods so that the unique needs of every individual can be met. To this end, I practice an eclectic style that incorporates solution-focused, cognitive-behavioral, person-centered, and strengths-based perspectives. I am grateful to play a role in empowering my clients to enrich their lives and meet their goals; the joy and satisfaction I get from witnessing people overcoming the obstacles necessary to live their best lives is what inspires me to continue my work.
If you are using insurance, the cost is dependent upon your policy and may include a co-payment, deductible, or co-insurance. These fees are determined by your insurance company and are due each session. Some people do not pay anything. Others have a small co-payment, while some have a large deductible. Each policy is different. It is best to contact your insurance company to verify your benefits prior to the first session.
