BA in Psychology from Rowan University & MSW from Rutgers University
My journey working in the mental health field began in 2016 as a residential counselor for adults with various mental health disorders. I then worked for 5 years as a Cognitive Activities Specialist and Rehabilitation Specialist for adults with traumatic brain injuries. While working in this position, I was pursuing my Master’s in Social Work through Rutgers University and interning in the field by conducting clinical intakes, facilitating mental health and substance abuse groups, and providing individual therapy. After receiving my Master’s, I continued to work in mental health/addiction counseling for adolescents and adults by facilitating groups and providing individual as well as couple’s therapy.

Empowering and supporting clients to gain awareness of their true potential and value in this world. Every individual is unique in their needs and abilities. My goal is to provide a safe, non-judgmental space for them to process their emotions, learn coping strategies/skills for managing their mental health, work on meeting their personal goals, and finding their true fulfillment in life.
