For over 10 years, I have had the opportunity to provide mental health services to children, adolescents, and families. I hold a Master’s degree in Social Work from Rutgers University and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology from Ithaca College. I have experience working with children, teens, and families in a variety of settings including foster care, residential services, in-home therapy, and schools. I have assisted clients in dealing with depression, anxiety, oppositional behaviors, and trauma.
I believe in a diverse approach to therapy by determining what works best for each individual client and tailoring our time together to best meet your needs. Some of these techniques include: trauma-informed care, cognitive behavioral therapy, the Nurtured Heart Approach, and person-centered therapy. I have found that the key to successful therapy is building a trusting relationship and strong alliance between therapist and client. My goal is to always help you build off of your strengths and experiences to foster growth. Together we can enhance your inner wealth and create the change you want to see.
I am committed to providing a safe, comforting space to all people. Throughout my education and career, I’ve made it a point to remain active in learning about the specific needs of the LGBTQIA community, while also standing as an ally. I believe that therapy should be a safe place where my clients can feel free to explore their feelings and experiences without the fear of being judged. My goal is to always allow my clients to feel heard, respected, and accepted.
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.
