Verified clinicians have had their licenses confirmed by our staff at the time they create their profile. We also require all verified therapists keep their licensing information up to date in order to maintain verified status.
Send your prospective therapist a brief message about why you’re seeking support, your preference for in-person or telehealth services, and how you’d like to be contacted moving forward. Note: Answers to many common questions can be found on the therapist’s profile page. If this is an emergency, please call 911 or go to your nearest hospital.
I specialize in treating disordered eating, substance addiction, and anxiety. I use a combination of client-centered therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and dialectical-behavioral techniques in my practice with clients. Goals vary from person to person, so I will tailor a treatment plan based on your individual needs and preferences.
I am a licensed psychotherapist based in Bergen County New Jersey with almost 10 years of clinical experience. As a dually licensed therapist, I am both a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and a Licensed Clinical Alcohol and Drug Counselor (LCADC). In my time as a therapist, I have worked in a variety of clinical settings including Partial Hospitalization, Partial Care, Intensive Outpatient, and Inpatient Hospital Admissions. While I am trained to treat substance abuse, addictions, and eating disorders, I also possess experience in treating a variety of other concerns including grief and loss, depression, anger, anxiety, worry, overthinking, fears, obsessions, compulsions, low self-esteem, body image concerns, identity concerns, life transitions, and perfectionism.
I believe that therapy is a collaborative process where positive change happens. While I am an excellent listener, I will also gently challenge you during the therapy process. With that said, I strive to strike a healthy balance between compassion and tough love. While the work done both during and in between sessions will get challenging at times, I can promise you that we will talk, cry, and laugh it out together!
There are a couple reasons why I chose to become a therapist. When I was growing up, there were people I loved in my life who were affected by addictions to drugs and alcohol. Another reason I became a therapist was because of my own struggles with disordered eating, negative body image, and anxiety. While bringing these issues to light and making positive changes was challenging, my own healing has helped to shape me into the person and therapist that I am today. Learning self-compassion, healing your relationship with food, practicing acceptance and forgiveness, and telling your nasty internal critic to take a hike is no easy feat! I’m not here to compare my pain to yours, but I can tell you that you have what it takes to overcome the hard stuff too. I want to walk this road with you.
