When my clients start a session, I ask them to tell me everything I need to know to help them. I never take notes because I want to give them my undivided attention. I have an uncanny ability to listen and remember everything during a session which serves me well as a therapist. My mind like a filing cabinet!
I want to help my clients in the same that therapy helped me when I was in a difficult situation. It gives me great satisfaction to know that I'm giving back. I know therapy works as I'm living proof.
In my first session it’s all about making new client feel comfortable. I gather as much information as I possibly can and assess our compatibility. Are we a good fit? Will we work well together?
I have a Master's degree in counseling from Seton Hall University.
I earned my Eds degree in Marriage and Family counseling from Seton Hall University.
I am licensed by the State of New Jersey
My fee is $135 per session but I consider and accommodate my clients' financial situation.
I do not accept insurance but I provide my clients with a complete statement to submit to their insurance companies.
I had never gone to a therapist but my life changed in 1985. I had the most amazing therapist who turned my life around. I thought if I could help just one other person like she helped me, I would pay it forward. That was the start of my passion for this field... I went back to school, earned my Masters, and an Ed.S degree, and then passed the State of New Jersey license... The Rest is History!!!
I have worked with so many clients with different types of issues including Grief Counseling Caretakers, PTSD Separation/Divorce, Anxiety, Depression, Bi-Polar and schizophrenia disorders and so much more. I work with adults of all ages, kids, couples, families and any new situation where I can provide help.
Meet with your potential therapist and see if it's a good fit for you. It's essential to feel comfortable and safe for therapy to work. It's okay to shop around until you find the right therapist for you.
