About Me

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in New York State, as well as a Nationally Certified Counselor, with a B.S. from East Stroudsburg University and a M.S. in Clinical Mental Heath Counseling from LIU Post.  I have worked extensively with at risk youth in various community settings before transitioning into private practice. I continue to work with adults and teens with various levels of anxiety and stress, as stress has unfortunately become an expectation of our lives from school, to work, to our personal lives. Through personal and professional experience, and being a mother of two, I know that very well and have seen how the patterns of stress can continue when we have not found an effective way to cope.. Life is full of the unexpected and change can be unsettling.  As a therapist, my goal is to provide you with a strong sense of inner strength and healthy coping strategies to manage overwhelming emotions and the stress of various life transitions. Through learning to challenge your thoughts, empowerment training, mindfulness, and self esteem building, you too can feel strong enough to conquer your challenges. 

MY PASSIONS

My passions include utilizing personal wellness to promote emotional health and improving self-esteem through self care, personal growth, and empowerment. My focus in session includes a cognitive behavioral approach and teaching mindfulness meditation strategies. If you can change the way you think, you can change the way you feel; and I can help you to do so. 

SPECIALTIES

I currently specialize in treating depression, anxiety, and relationship issues. Learning to cope with everyday stress is never an easy task, yet can be done with an emphasis on self-advocacy and self-love, and establishing boundaries. I have several years of experience working with children, adolescents, adults, and families with various diagnoses, including bipolar disorder, OCD, eating disorders, etc. 

Therapeutic Approach

COGNITIVE BEHAVIORAL THERAPY

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy  (CBT) is a form of psychotherapy that treats problems and boosts happiness by modifying dysfunctional emotions, behaviors, and thoughts. CBT focuses on solutions, encouraging patients to challenge distorted cognitions and alter destructive patterns of behavior.

CBT rests on the idea that thoughts and perceptions influence behavior. Feeling distressed, in some cases, may distort one’s perception of reality. CBT aims to identify harmful thoughts, assess whether they are an accurate depiction of reality, and, if they are not, employ strategies to challenge and overcome them.

CBT is appropriate for people of all ages, including children, adolescents, and adults. Evidence has suggested that CBT can benefit numerous conditions, such as major depressive disorder, anxiety disorders, PTSD, eating disorders, obsessive compulsive disorder, and many others. 

MINDFULNESS

Mindfulness is a state of actively living in the present. This state encompasses observing one’s thoughts and feelings without judging them as good or bad.

To live mindfully is to live in the moment and reawaken oneself to the present, rather than dwelling on the past or anticipating the future. Mindfulness can also be a healthy way to identify and manage emotions that are causing problems in personal or professional relationships.

Mindfulness has many positive benefits, including lowering stress levels, reducing harmful overthinking, and protecting against depression and anxiety. Mindfulness is a tool that allows people to be more aware of their physical and emotional conditions without getting dragged down by self-criticism and judgment.

Goal setting

Let me help you learn to set small attainable goals to work towards personal growth. Discover your self worth by getting to know yourself in a new light and gaining a deeper understanding of your personal values, strengths, and emotions.  Establishing a connection with your mind and body will set you on the path of building upon your inner strength to better manage symptoms of depression and anxiety while learning to establish healthy boundaries with other people in your life.
