Do you have issues that you struggle with privately? Are you seeking a helper and a thought partner to get you where you want to be? I specialize in working with Individuals, Families, and Couples just like you. We’ll work together and as I listened to you, we’ll develop a path forward.
I am a full-time Therapist and Licensed Clinical Social Worker registered in the State of New Jersey.  I obtained my master's degree in Social Work from Rutgers University in New Brunswick, NJ after graduating Rutgers with Highest Honors as a double major in Psychology and Criminal Justice, and triple minor in Women's and Gender Studies, Sociology, and Criminology.  Over the course of my career, I have successfully treated numerous complex mental and behavioral health issues.  I understand the complexities of assessing, diagnosing, and treating clients from many backgrounds and needs.  From operating in addiction clinics, clinics specializing in personality disorders, child wellness clinics, school systems, as well as State and local municipalities (such as the Middlesex County prosecutor's office and the NJ Victims of Crimes Compensation office) I've seen a lot. Outside of my career, I am a loving wife.  I enjoy traveling with my husband and can't wait to plan our next adventure.
