There can be a lot on our plate that makes us feel stressed, sometimes even finding a therapist feels overwhelming! I work with adults who have difficulty managing those overwhelming emotions, as well as those who have difficulty coping with anxiety, depression, and communicating with others. I have experience working with people from diverse cultural backgrounds, and have experience working with the LGBTQ+ community.
As humans we have a basic need to feel heard and validated, and it is this belief that guides my work as a therapist. I aim to provide a calming space that allows individuals to gain insight, increase self-awareness, find solutions to problems, and make positive changes to live a fuller life.

I have a wide variety of experiences working with children, adolescents, teens and young adults both in both therapeutic and academic settings. Each client is unique therefore I come from an eclectic approach based on their individual needs to ensure that I am providing optimal care.
I prioritize creating a safe and supportive environment for my clients to explore all parts of their identities and experiences, even the ones that tend to not be so obvious or we are fearful of acknowledging.

I am the Founder and Clinical Director of Wellness Counseling of Bergen County. I have my doctorate in Educational Psychology and a master’s degree in Counseling Psychology from Fordham University. I provide clinical supervision and mentorship to other professionals as an Approved Clinical Supervisor (ACS).
I started my career in the school system working in K-12 schools and colleges. I transitioned to private practice in 2011 focusing on helping families (children, adolescents and adults) deal with anxiety and depression accompanying everyday life.
My mission has always stemmed from being an adolescent and suffering depression and not having the right professional to turn to. I became a psychologist to help young people find someone they can relate to.
