As a Mental Health Counselor with a Master's degree from Hofstra University, I specialize in working with teens and young adults who struggle with anxiety, depression, substance use, anger management, and life transitions. My passion for helping others stems from my belief that taking the first step of reaching out and asking for help is an act of courage. As a counselor, I am privileged to be able to provide the support and guidance necessary to navigate the journey toward a better self.
My approach to therapy is rooted in empathy and true authenticity. I strive to create a warm and supportive environment for my clients where they feel comfortable expressing their thoughts and emotions. I believe that the best way to achieve personal change is by identifying specific goals and developing tools that promote overall well-being.
Through collaborative sessions, I work with my clients to explore their unique challenges and develop strategies that help them achieve their goals. The journey toward a better self can be difficult, and it is my goal to provide unwavering support throughout the process. Whether my clients are dealing with anxiety, depression, substance use, anger management, or any other life transition, I am committed to helping them navigate their journey toward a more fulfilling life.
If you are unsure whether therapy is right for you, know that dedicating time to focus on feeling like your best self is reason enough. My hope for each client is that they gain as much as they can from their experience in therapy and emerge feeling empowered, confident, and capable of creating positive change in their lives.
