About Me

My Approach To Therapy

I am a Board Certified National Certified Counselor (NCC) and Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) located in Toms River, NJ and currently serve Ocean County and surrounding areas in NJ. I also offer telephone sessions so that I am able to help all clients seeking counseling in New Jersey (see below for details).  I have over 5 years of experience working with various populations ranging from children and teens to adults, families, couples and groups. I have extensive experience working with Substance Abuse, anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, family problems, couples conflicts and many other presenting concerns. I also have experience facilitating group therapy and this is something that I will soon be incorporating into my practice. I use a strength-based, person-centered approach to therapy. I believe that each one of us has inner strengths that already exist as well as potential strengths that can be developed through effective therapy. I build a solid rapport with my clients in order to help them feel comfortable discussing personal presenting problems/issues so that they may begin the journey of healing and move toward their goals. I help the client focus on gaining personal insight in order to increase clarity and self-understanding so that they may tap into the strengths that they already or could potentially possess. This process will hopefully lead the client to achieve their best self and utilize their strengths and resources in order to live a balanced life that is focused on overall happiness and well-being.
