I have a wide range of counseling experience in the mental health and addictions fields working with children, adolescents and adults in individual, family, couple and group settings. I have worked closely with people of various races, backgrounds and ethnicities with extensive experience providing brief treatment therapy, reality therapy, interpersonal therapy, and cognitive-behavioral therapies. I have a strong background in family systems and interventions, relationships and conflict negotiation, depression and anxiety disorders, self-esteem issues, PTSD and other traumas, addictions, codependency and attachment issues. I have also received in-depth training regarding marriage and couples' therapy, family dynamics and interventions, behavior modification, emotional manipulation, addictions, PTSD and more.
I have a background in teaching and understand everyone learns differently. With this said, I do not take one particular approach to therapy and feel feedback is a crucial part of the therapeutic process. I believe the relationship between client and therapist should be held in the highest regard.
I graduated from St. Bonaventure University (SBU) in 2009 with my MSEd in counselor education community mental health. In 2010 I received my advanced certification in community mental health counseling from SBU. I am a licensed mental health counselor (LMHC) in the state of New York & a licensed professional counselor (LPC) in the state of Pennsylvania. I am also a Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC) and a Certified Clinical Mental Health Counselor (CCMHC) through the National Board of Certified Counselors (NBCC).
