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 am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in New Jersey.

For over 15 years, I have been working with children, adolescents, adults, and families with challenges such as anxiety, depression, behavioral concerns, grief, relational concerns in hospitals, schools, private practice, and in-home and community based settings.
I am committed to compassionately supporting and guiding all of my clients on their courageous quest toward personal growth and well-being. My goal is to educate and empower you by providing practical and powerful tools through empathy, non-judgmental atmosphere as well as meeting you where you are at. Approaches to therapy I use include: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Family Therapy, Marital Counseling, Solution-Focused Therapy, Rational-Emotive Therapy, Behavioral Therapy.
My goal is to provide a safe space, support and understanding as well as to help my clients identify their own strengths so that they feel empowered to work through presented challenges.
