About Me

I am a heart-centered clinician who believes the therapeutic relationship is the foundation for any work I practice – this means that everything we do is centered around your needs, your dreams, and your progress.

Education & Experience

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I received my Master’s Degree in Social Work and an Undergraduate Degree in Psychology from Rutgers University. I’m intensively trained in Mindfulness and work through a Mindfulness-Based perspective. I have training in Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) through the EMDR Institute™. I completed the Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) Intensive Training™ through Behavioral Tech and treat eating disorders through the DBT Treatment of Binge Eating and Bulimia. I also use Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), and trauma-focused therapy and stabilization.
