Professional statement

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and Licensed Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor (LCADC) by the State of NJ, as well as a Certified Rehabilitation Counselor. I earned my Bachelor's of Science in Psychology and Psychiatric Rehabilitation from Kean University in 2013 and Master's of Science in Rehabilitation Counseling from Rutgers University in 2016.

I hold seven years of counseling experiencing working with children, adolescents, adults, groups, families, and persons living with anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), or substance use disorders. As a counselor, I utilize an integrative therapeutic approach, blending techniques from complementary counseling theories to provide an individualized counseling experience tailored to each person’s unique needs and goals.


Message to clients

My mission is to provide the clients I serve with a safe place to process and work through life challenges during each session. My goal is to help individuals gain insight about how to improve their mental health by learning therapeutic skills to foster personal growth, independence, and healing.
