In life there are many stages, changes, and relationships that bring stress and challenges. Seeking psychotherapy is a positive and important step to gaining insight and empower the client to overcome obstacles in life. As a therapist my primary goal is to provide an environment that is safe, promotes trust between therapist and client and most importantly without judgment.
After graduating with my Masters in Social Work from Rutgers University, I have dedicated my life to help teens, adults, families and couples see their best version of themselves and by doing so, empowering them to move forward in life with acceptance and resilience. My first five years in the field were spent working in a variety of settings and with different populations and different backgrounds. I had worked in schools working one-on-one with students in crisis and with social and emotional situations. As a therapist in a mental health clinic I was able to see people from different ages and with different stressors which gave me the experience needed to see life from different points of view.
APPROACH TO THERAPY
One of the most important aspects of my work is meeting the client where they are, therefore , I take an integrative approach that combines CBT skills, DBT skills, mindfulness and other different approaches that would meet the needs of the client. The goal is to offer a collaborative relationship between client and therapist to assist in returning the client to their prior level of functioning as quickly as possible.
