Life is not a looking glass, don’t get tangled in your past, like I am learning not to

-Brandi Carlile

I pride myself on being more than just an active listener, but a vital member of your support team that can help you look at things in a different way and feel better.

I have over five years of experience in the field of mental health and currently work at a non-profit mental health agency as a Clinical Supervisor. In that setting I primarily work with adults who are living with serious mental health problems as well as co-occurring substance use disorders, and youth living with trauma.

I recognize that taking the first step into counseling is often the most difficult. I work hard to fully understand my clients to have them feel supported and empowered from the door and throughout the journey that follows. Together, we will work as a united team—helping you to achieve your goals.

I received my Master’s degree from Fairleigh Dickinson University in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and my Bachelor’s degree in Behavioral Neuroscience Psychology. I participated in one year of post-graduate training in gender, sexuality and sex therapy. I also have experience coordinating a team of Lead Responders to provide psychological first aid in schools, as well as other youth serving organizations, to support students and staff in the aftermath of a traumatic event or loss. While I have served on this team for the past five years, I have been lucky enough to coordinate the past two.

If you are searching for guidance, wellness, and/or need help overcoming a challenge in your personal or professional life, I would be happy to partner with you during this process of change. Please feel free to reach out with any questions that you may have.
