Profile
“I believe that every individual has the potential to live a meaningful life and better their circumstances through personal development.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I am a graduate of Rutgers University where I completed my BA in psychology with honors and subsequently attended their Master of Social Work program. Following graduation in 2014, I obtained my initial professional license and trained under the supervision of LCSWs, PhD clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, and other masters-level therapists until I obtained my LCSW. My attraction to the field stems from an appreciation for seeing others actualize their potential. The core of my early training is in working with children and families using the attachment, self-regulation, and competency model. My later training consisted of a multifaceted approach, which incorporated elements of CBT and DBT.
What should someone know about working with you?
Those who choose to work with me can expect a comprehensive assessment at intake followed by goal-setting. Treatment modalities are individualized to each client's needs. I work best with adults experiencing anxiety and depression.
How do your core values shape your approach to therapy?
I believe that every individual has the potential to live a meaningful life and better their circumstances through personal development. As such, my approach is centered on empowering clients to take charge of their mental health and develop skills helpful beyond sessions.
