“My clients have told me that they feel comfortable with me from the start and easily share their thoughts and concerns.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
My first important career was as a homemaker. I raised two children with my husband and learned a lot from my personal experience as a parent and a partner. Once my children were grown, I pursued my lifelong desire to become a therapist. From adolescence to adulthood, I was the friend who everyone called. I loved helping and dreamed of making a career of it. As an adult student at Rutgers University, I earned my master’s in Social Work which led to my career as a psychotherapist and couples counselor. I have worked with domestic abuse survivors, adult children of alcoholics, individuals with anxiety and depression, couples, and people with challenges navigating life. I am drawn to working with couples, helping them to learn to communicate and connect in a healthy way, including sexually. On a personal level, I have many queer family members and relate well to LGBTQ clients. My clients have told me that they feel comfortable with me from the start and easily share their thoughts and concerns. I now work in private practice with my daughter.
What should someone know about working with you?
I’m professional but casual and believe that a little humor never hurts! I’m easy to talk to. Some people are shy about confiding things they’ve never shared with anyone else, but there’s really nothing I haven’t heard in my 20 years as a therapist. I also have considerable life experience, which I share with my clients when appropriate.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I try to stay up-to-date on current research in my chosen field and take frequent advanced courses in trauma, sexuality, and couples work. It is my heart's desire to always build my competency to offer my clients the best possible help.
How do your own core values shape your approach to therapy?
My primary value in life is personal authenticity for both myself and my clients; once you have it — really have it — your decisions and path through life will guide you in the right direction. It’s not an easy thing to achieve and I always weave it into my treatment approaches.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
I'm thrilled with the increasing successful use of telehealth. It makes therapy accessible to so many more people, especially those in rural areas who wouldn't ordinarily have access to a therapist. Some people will always want face-to-face therapy, but not everyone. Some prefer the convenience of therapy from home and I'm so pleased to be able to offer that!
