I believe that everyone needs a safe space where they can explore concerns with daily living and its impediments. I provide a neutral, non-judgmental zone to explore and find positive coping strategies. I believe that positive coping strategies will empower us to live our best lives. I will aid you in finding and exploring factors in your past and present that have hindered you from recognizing your internal strength. I hold a strong belief that talk therapy allows for a collaborative effort to utilize grounded theories as the tools needed to help you heal, change, accept and live your best life.
I am a Mental Health Counselor-LP who attained my degrees from Nassau Community College, New York University, and Hofstra University. While attending these scholastic institutions, I interned at various facilities such as The Door, Queens Children Psychiatric Hospital, and South Oaks Hospital Chemical Dependency and Substance Abuse Program. I have also held positions that allowed me to work with both public and private sector. I've worked with children and adults with a history of traumatic events that stem from various types of abuse. I also have experience with couple's therapy, particularly focused around healthy communication styles.
