More about me

Licensing: LPC
Years in Practice: 5
State: NJ

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of New Jersey, and have worked in the mental health field since 1996. I obtained my Master of Arts in Counseling, from Montclair State University in May 2003. During my career, I have worked in both individual and group settings, including adults with severe and persistent mental illness and co-occurring disorders in hospital and residential settings. These populations including depression, bi-polar disorder, schizophrenia, personality disorders, anxiety, PTSD and OCD. Additionally, I have experience working with LGBTQ individuals and adolescents.

As a therapist, I believe in a holistic person-centered approach that employs motivational interviewing techniques. For me, it is important to meet each person where they are at, allowing a safe, supportive, and respectful environment. My role is to engage with you, understand more about you and what has brought you to therapy. It is additionally important for me to work with you to identify changes and a plan of action we can formulate. An empathic, non-judgement approach is important in helping you on your journey in creating a happier and healthier life.

I look forward to working with you!

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

I seriously would not be in the mental state I am right now without David's help. He was absolutely phenomenal, and even though I don't need therapy anymore, I would have loved to stay and talk with him. He is easy to trust and I could not recommend him enough.
