Provider Profile

I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor with experience in the field of counseling and psychology for over 15 years. Are you feeling overwhelmed or stressed, and wished things were just a little different? I can provide a safe, warm and supportive environment where we can create meaningful solutions to your concerns through the therapeutic process.I understand that taking the first step to reach out for help is always the toughest but it's also a big step forward towards making a change. So let's start the journey to that change! I am available to assist on Saturdays and some weeknights.

My specialization is in working with teens, young adults, parents and individuals with issues such as anxiety, parental concerns, work stressors, grief, academics, relationship stressors, self-esteem and other day-to-day challenges. I have a deep respect for all religions and also specialize in working with multi-ethnic individuals.

My approach to treatment is practical, collaborative and solution focused. I tailor my treatment to the uniqueness of my client so as to foster the best possible outcome for the situation. I utilize a wide variety of techniques including cognitive-behavioral, play therapy, mindfulness, and solution focused techniques.
