I am a Board Certified National Certified Counselor (NCC) and Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) located in Toms River, New Jersey and currently serve Ocean County and surrounding areas. I have over 6 years of experience working with clients from diverse backgrounds who face various challenges. I also have experience working with different age groups, ranging from children to elderly clients. I use a strength-based, solution-focused approach to therapy in which each client is the center point of the therapeutic process. Each journey is unique and tailored to the specific needs of each client. I do not believe that only one approach can work for all clients. This is why I use a variety of techniques that are based on each person's individual goals and treatment preferences. I believe that everyone has unique strengths that already exist and can be utilized and strengthened through the use of counseling and therapy. I also believe that a person can develop new skills and strengths that can help them reach their goals. I find it imperative to create a safe and nonjudgmental environment in order to build trust with clients and collaborate with them to create a plan to achieve their goals. I work to help each client increase self-awareness and let go of negative thinking patterns and behaviors and work to teach them new skills, thought processes and behaviors in order to achieve an improved overall sense of well-being.
I have worked for various agencies in the state of New Jersey providing therapeutic services, including :
-individual therapy / individual counseling
-family therapy / family counseling
-group therapy / group counseling
-Intensive in community (IIC) services to children and families
-IDRC (intoxicated driver resource center) education courses and screening
-mandated clients (probation, parole, drug court, DCPP, etc).
-EAP (employee assistance programs)
-Substance abuse treatment
-Family support groups (addiction)
