Portrait Health Centers are multi-specialty clinics that employ the most cutting-edge and proven assessment protocols and treatment options available, believing that an Effective Treatment Depends On An Accurate Diagnosis. Individuals should not have to “play doctor” by researching available treatments and then self-selecting which of these treatments has been scientifically validated and would be most appropriate for themselves or their family. At Portrait Health Centers, we provide a comprehensive and multi-specialty assessment to determine the underlying causes of your symptoms and incorporate an appropriate treatment plan.

My mission is to establish a safe and welcoming space in order to create a comfortable, trusting environment. I am very passionate about encouraging self-awareness and personal growth in order to assist and empower clients in identifying goals, overcoming challenges and achieving their full potential. I believe that each and every client is different and requires individual assessment. Working to build an atmosphere centered in trust and respect, I work diligently to construct and engage comprehensive treatments aimed toward building clients’ self-esteem, bolstering their empowerment and improving their overall quality of life.

I graduated from Monmouth University with a Master's degree in Mental Health Counseling and have worked with clients of diverse ages and cultural backgrounds. Applying an empathetic approach, I work to tailor a combination of therapeutic approaches specifically to meet the needs of each client, some of which include Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Positive Psychology, Mindfulness, Client-Centered Therapy, Art and Play Therapy.

I am extremely active and enjoy being out in the world. I am an avid runner and soccer player. In my spare time, I enjoy crafting, yoga, meditation, hiking and exploring new trails.
