Our Experiences Shape Who We Are
In my experience, using mindfulness, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), Interpersonal Neurobiology, along with a Person Centered Therapeutic approach allows me to create and hold a healing space for clients to do the work they feel may lead them towards being more calm, making better decisions, and reaching their goals.
My unique blend of being a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), Registered Play Therapist (RPT), and Teacher of the Handicapped (TOH) uses therapeutic and behavioral strategies for clients and their families who would like to create positive changes towards happiness in their lives.
I can tailor my practice to meet the needs of my concierge clients- from meeting them in my office, to in the community or even their home.
I specialize in: Play Therapy for children 3-7 years old; EMDR therapy; School-Based play therapy; Life Mapping with adolescents and young adults who have ‘Failed to Launch’ (17-25); and families that want to positively shift their dynamic of interacting.
I am very passionate about teaching future Mental Health professionals and contributing to my field. I have been an Adjunct Professor in the Graduate Psychological Counseling program at New Jersey City University, and Adjunct Professor in the Undergraduate Social Work Program at Monmouth University. I have the Approved Clinical Supervisor (ACS) certification, served as a Board Member for NJAPT (New Jersey Association of Play Therapy), served on the Friends of Monmouth Child Advocacy Center, and am also been a member of the Play Therapy Consortium of New Jersey.
My work experience includes: working with DCP&P (formerly DYFS) providing Therapeutic Visitation & Sibling Visits, as well as children and foster families in the Foster Care system; Intensive In Community Services for Mobile Response and Children’s System of Care, Family Stabilization and Support Services (FSS) for families in crisis; a Gap Year program for 17-25 year olds who have “Failed to Launch”, as well as Outpatient Counseling Services for adults, children & families.
I look forward to our journey together towards wellness, balance, and mindful living. The opportunity to experience yourself or see your life differently is always available......book your appointment today.
