I have been a psychotherapist for over 19 years and I have worked with all walks of life. I have developed programs for the elderly, young children, individuals who struggle with substance issues, sexually abused adults and children and people whom have struggled with various types of trauma. Regardless of the issue all my clients require and deserve validation and unconditional care. I am very passionate with regard to finding creative ways to help people gain the confidence needed to help themselves. My motto for life is that life is not just surviving but thriving.

Specialties & Issues
I have received multiple awards for humanistic beliefs and practice. My educational years were all met with high honors and scholarships. I was appointed the first ever health systems specialist designation for my work with nursing homes at the New York State Department of health as a quality of life was to me of the highest importance. I work with physical coaching, nature mindfulness training and positive affirmations for my own self-care and I share these techniques with my clients.
- Trauma and abuse
- Emotional Support Animal Verifications
I come from a strengths perspective and I believe in the power of self-love. No one therapeutic model works for everyone as we are all unique. I listen and collaborate with my clients in order to help them achieve their highest self. I work with reading and writing tools and I know that behavior change, although challenging, will lead to positive changes in the mind, body and soul. What life throws at us does not define us it is what we do to overcome that creates our greatest achievements.
