Practice Information:
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.

Making the decision to begin counseling can be scary and overwhelming. It can also be a very gratifying experience. As a therapist, I strive to provide clients with a relaxed, safe, and trusting environment so that we can work together to overcome any obstacle that may block their path to both mental and physical health. Specific treatment approaches I utilize include CBT, DBT, ACT, Solution-Focused, Reality Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Play Therapy, Person-Centered, and Family Systems Therapy. I focus on the integration of therapeutic interventions styled to the client’s own unique personality in order to help individuals develop positive changes in themselves and their relationships.

I earned my Master’s Degree at Georgian Court University in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, and my Bachelor’s Degree in Communication Studies at Rowan University. I have experience working in the individual, group and family setting with a very diverse population ranging from young children and adolescents to adult and the elderly. I have worked with clients struggling with anxiety, depression, specific phobias, self-esteem issues, self-image and weight issues, substance abuse, and behavioral problems. I also have experience working with couples and families trying to cope with a loved one that is struggling with substance abuse or mental health issues.

In my spare time I enjoy playing and watching sports, running the boardwalk, and spending time with family and friends.
