Master of Arts, Clinical Mental Health Counseling
Licensed Mental Health Counselor (NY)
I embrace a holistic perspective and want to help support the individual, not just treat the symptoms in order to provide long-lasting outcomes. During our sessions together I will hold your personal experiences and understanding in high regard, because I believe you already have what it takes to heal. My role is to help you uncover that strength and knowledge. We will explore experiences that have created challenges in your life. Together we can work to form healthier thought patterns, find the source of your struggles, and learn to listen to your own inner wisdom.
I am currently a licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor in New York and Registered Associate Professional Clinical Counselor in California. My own transformation and healing journey through therapy has led me to become a psychotherapist.
I have a bachelor of arts degree in neuroscience and religion from Arcadia University, followed by a master of arts in clinical mental health counseling from Marywood University. My work has primarily been with individuals and groups, addressing relationship concerns, anxiety, depression, addictions, spiritual exploration, and life transitions.
For the last two years I’ve worked as a clinician at a drug and alcohol outpatient program in Ithaca, NY. This has given me the opportunity to work with a diverse population of adults, with a focus on addiction, reintegrating into the community after periods of incarceration, childhood trauma or adverse experiences, and women’s issues.
I approach therapy intuitively and take an integrative approach to my work. I make use of various lenses to help assist you on your journey, often integrating mindfulness practices, somatic practices, motivational interviewing, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), and acceptance commitment therapy (ACT) into my work when it is needed. I will utilize my academic training and passion for healing to help support you as you rediscover what it means to live a life of authenticity.
