ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS!!! I graduated from Monmouth University with a Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling with a specialization in addictions counseling. I have experience with a diverse population of clients with various backgrounds; I have worked with individuals (preteens to adults), groups, families and couples. I have an eclectic approach to counseling and utilize different techniques so that the client may meet their treatment goals. I believe that treatment begins with building a strong therapeutic relationship that caters to the clients’ needs. My treatment preferences include: Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Motivational Interviewing. My self-care routine includes napping, a day at the spa, reading, listening to music and spending quality time with my friends and family.
