The field of Counseling provides professional guidance to individuals by using multiple therapeutic modalities to address common problems. The counseling relationship allows the individual to explore and clarify their past and current worldview through the non-judgmental support of the therapist. This relationship also allows the individual to identify and develop skills such as; problem solving, decision making and communication to improve their quality of life.

I am licensed by the State of Connecticut as a Professional Counselor and an Addiction Counselor. I hold a Master's degree in Counseling from Southern Connecticut State University, and a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology from Sacred Heart University. I have enjoyed assisting individuals in the area of counseling and mentorship for 5 years, and have gained great insight into the importance of this helping relationship. Many people are suffering with mental illness, addiction, self esteem, depression, anxiety and much more, counseling provides an opportunity to work through these situations and to begin to enjoy a greater sense of well-being.

As a Licensed Counselor, my professional experience includes providing individual, group, and family therapy, crisis intervention and cognitive-behavioral therapy to diverse populations. I am willing and committed to helping you build healthy relationships, positive attachments and problem solving skills to enhance and develop your personal and professional outlook. 
I chose the counseling profession because I enjoy people. I enjoy listening, learning and helping individuals process their own worldviews.  counseling relationship should empower each individual to work through their unique situations, then develop skills to manage and cope in healthy and more fulfilling ways, I will assist in this process. During each session, the individual should become more aware and enlightened to the possibilities and benefits of change, verses the consequences of staying the same, we will work toward this goal together. Cognitive behavioral therapy, and solution focus therapy teaches the idea of change through positive thinking and behavior modification, we will use these evidence based techniques to help you gain a better outlook.

The idea of coming to counseling and making life changes may seem daunting, but I am here to assist, support and provide you with the tools you need to be successful. Some of my greatest moments as a clinician is seeing a face that began the counseling relationship with streams of tears, turn into a face with a bright and healthy smile, and a new outlook on life."
