Building Mindful Connections

Building Mindful Connections


About this pro

I’ve been called the “anti therapist” by the majority of my clients. I never consider myself an expert at anyone or anything-  I’m constantly learning.  I’ve worked in an inner city high school setting for over five years where I ran a family mental health program, I’ve done in-home work with foster families, and worked with couples for over a decade- and, now I have my own practice where I love having the freedom to be me.  Depending on who is in my office, sometimes I don’t even discuss the problem at hand until we have developed a rapport.  I spend most of my energy connecting and relating to my clients to build a strong foundation from which our work can grow.  I’ve been a therapist for over 15 years and have truly learned more with each session that I complete, and I am passionate about all that I do.   

My passion is working with teens and young adults who are depressed or anxious and self harm.  I also have a deep love and need to fight for the prevention and awareness of suicide.  I believe the way we can save lives is by fighting against the stigma that holds people back from getting the help that they need and deserve.  I throw my heart and soul into the work that I do- and I work so hard to create a safe atmosphere for my clients to be themselves, for, without that feeling of safety- no work can be done.  I have a YouTube channel, a fb page and a website.  Check me out and see if we are a good fit.

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

When a potential new client contacts me, we usually talk for a little and I ask questions to see if I think I can be of help.  Then we start building the relationship right away, and if the client is interested, we set up a time to meet. 

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

MA in Marriage and Family Therapy from Fairfield University 

Certified Adoption Specialiat from Rutgers University
