I am a therapist specializing in individual and group therapy. I am located in Pitman, NJ. I specialize in trauma, depression, anxiety, PTSD, OCD, and many more DSM V diagnoses. I am a New Jersey Licensed Clinical Social Worker and mental health therapist. I completed my Bachelor's in Psychology from Rowan University in 2002. I then entered my graduate studies at Rutgers University where I obtained a Master's degree in Social Work and Counseling in 2006, after which time I completed all NJ state requirements as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in order to practice Psychotherapy. Additionally, I received my EMDR certificate from the Emdria Institute in 2014.
I am an interactive, person centered therapist. My therapeutic approach is to provide support and cultivate change. I create a treatment plan for each client to pertain to his or her individual needs. Some of the things I implement are DBT, CBT, mindfulness, EMDR, relaxation techniques, and breathing exercises. One of my specializations is trauma and PTSD. I also have experience working with individuals that have been diagnosed with a chronic medical condition or disease.
In addition to helping people with compassion and understanding, my number one goal is to see my clients become the best versions of themselves each and every day. I understand that my clients may feel as if they are powerless to change a situation they feel stuck in. With empathy and discernment I help individuals to build on their strengths in order live more peaceful lives and to make positive changes.
My focuses include trauma resolution, childhood neglect/abuse, building self-confidence, relationship issues, life transitions, adjustment disorders, depression, anxiety, dramatic powerless life changes, and anger management. I also continue to build my knowledge and experience with workshops and trainings each year.
