I'm glad you've found me! I know that deciding on the right therapist can be a difficult process, and I welcome any questions you may have for me before committing to an appointment. Please don't hesitate to contact me if there is something you want to ask. I love what I do and I want our work together to be meaningful and successful.

I received my graduate degree at The College of New Jersey, where I was trained extensively in the practice of individual counseling as well as couple and family therapy. I began my career as a therapist treating survivors of trauma and abuse in a partial hospital and intensive outpatient setting, and then moved on to non-profit work in an agency focused on sheltering and counseling survivors of domestic violence.

I am now in private practice, where I continue to utilize my extensive experience as an interpersonal trauma specialist, but also work with a broad spectrum of clients with a variety of concerns, including mood disorders, anxiety, relationship issues, and much more.

I pursued a second speciality in infertility counseling when I became aware that people experiencing infertility are often treated from every possible angle except the emotional one. Clinicians who are educated about the unique needs of clients with infertility are small in numbers, leaving patients with few options for support.

I sought training and a clinical mentorship through the Mental Health Professionals' Group of the American Society of Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) and am now faculty at the Jefferson University Infertility Counseling Conference, held annually in Philadelphia, helping to educate clinicians from across the U.S. and the world in the field of infertility counseling.

As a therapist and as a human being, I understand that life throws us curveballs we may not anticipate. More than that, our relationships as well things have happened in our past are not always healthy or fair. Life is a difficult journey, and there are times when we all need someone to help us navigate it. I consider it my passion and my life's work to be present for my clients and to help them to see their way to change.

I am always working to be my own best authentic self, and I will never ask anything more than that from you as we collaborate to help you achieve your treatment goals and personal growth.
