About Me

Since I was young, I have been passionate about helping those around me and know I am happiest when I am able to support and care for others. Unsurprisingly, these core values and qualities led me to earn a Marriage and Family Therapist degree from John F. Kennedy University in 2013. Since then, I have worked for over 6 years in many different mental health settings and now specialize in anxiety, depression, grief counseling, relationship issues, life transitions, body image concerns/self- esteem, and stress management.

Like so many of us, I too have experienced bouts of anxiety and depression that have impacted my life. I want to normalize these thoughts and feelings for clients while also providing hope that there is light at the end of the tunnel. This work has shown me it is possible to achieve self-growth, manage symptoms and emotions in healthy ways and improve relationships with ourselves and others. I am committed to those that I work with and encourage a telephone call prior to our first appointment so that I can best support you. Please feel free to reach out to me should you have any questions.
