I received my Master's Degree in Mental Health Counseling from Hofstra University, followed by an MBA in Health Services Management. I currently hold a New York State License to practice (#005680) and I am also a Nationally Board Certified Counselor with NBCC. Through my years providing therapy and counseling to a diverse set of clients, I truly believe that people are able to overcome tremendous difficulties when provided with the right tools and support. My practice is founded on core values of supporting my clients in a collaborative, professional, and comfortable environment using counseling tools that are proven to be effective by the scientific community. Benefits of my counseling style include increased confidence and courage to explore and resolve complex problems, increased self awareness, empowerment, and enhanced personal growth. Counseling with me is person centered- this means that my client is in the 'driver seat' determining where we go, how fast we get there, and what strategies they would like to use to work on their presenting concerns. I worked with my clients to make informed, shared decisions that align with their values and goals.
A typical therapy session involves us first meeting and me getting to understand what the primary concerns are that you would like addressed. We work together to initially summarize and lay out a plan for the next steps to take to help you start working on the presenting concerns. My approach allows us to work together to create a clear plan to make your desired changes a reality.
