I have been in a counseling/case worker role for over 20 years. I started out working with people who were homeless and addicted to some type of substance/alcohol, anything to numb or escape their pain. I ran groups for a while and thoroughly enjoyed it, mostly centered in CBT/REBT models. I loved what I did and I worked with fascinating people. Yet, I didn’t always want to be a counselor or psychotherapist. Entering college, I questioned how I would spend the rest of my life – what I wanted to be when I “grew up.” After graduating with a degree in business administration, there I stood, grown up, but still questioning. Soon after, I applied to the Americorps Vista program where I became a Counselor Aid working in the world of substance use problems in residential care. That invaluable experience led me to pursue my degree in Clinical Social Work, and spend my passion on working with individuals, families, groups, and military members in our community, to better understand mental health, and help those suffering from symptoms of depression, anxiety, psychophysiological concerns, and other co-occurring conditions.
I am a Yogini and a Christian! I align my practice in many spiritual philosophies including nature, music, movement, including eastern and western philosophies. Our journey together will be whatever you choose to believe and practice. Let’s navigate it together!
I hoped that all the experiences I had in my work life coupled with my winding-spiritual path, would help guide my work to offer services in the private sector. So, I opened my private practice for therapy services in 2016. I have served in my community as a Counselor, Case Manager, and Therapist at Helio Health, Program Director with Forensic Consultant Limited, ASAP Counselor with the US Department of Defense, Program Manager with the NYS Office of Addiction Services and Supports, and a Program Specialist with NYS Office of Mental Health. I am also an active member of the New York State Chapter of the National Association of Social Workers, as well as a member of the International Experiential Dynamic Therapy Association.
