More about me

Licensing: LPC, ACS
Years in Practice: 11
State: NJ

I've been practicing as a professional counselor in New Jersey for over 10 years, in outpatient, school and residential settings. I've worked primarily with children, families and young adults on issues related to parenting, trauma, mood and anxiety disorders. I work primarily from a Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy model, but also utilize Solution-Focused and Motivational Interviewing modalities. I am certified in Trauma-Focused Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy for children, and use a similar modality when working with adults.

Evidence-based treatment is emphasized in my counseling sessions, from beginning to end. Once we have discussed the reasons you're seeking counseling, we will review applicable diagnoses and treatment options for you to consider. We will always discuss expected outcomes of counseling and revisit the counseling goals we develop together.

I understand that pursuing counseling can be a difficult at times, and I approach all clients with empathy and patience throughout the process. I look forward to helping you through this process and in achieving your counseling goals.

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.

Very personable and helpful to my specific issues

D.R.·Apr 20, 2022


I’m beyond grateful for Jess’s outlook, expertise, and humor. She really understands me, challenges my thought pattern and listens to me. The growth I’ve made is amazing and I’m able to feel more like myself than I ever have. I’m going through so many transitions but I feel I can handle all of them because of her support! I look forward to our sessions each week probably more than a lot of things in my week lol. Thank you Jess, you truly are amazing!

Where do I start, Jess has not only been such a huge part in my personal growth and realization but also in my confidence in recommending BetterHelp to everyone I come in contact with. Being a mental health advocate I can’t be more grateful for being matched with Jess. I look forward to my sessions each week and I know if I need to contact more that’s always an option as well. I truly believe everyone can benefit from therapy, thank you Jess for being you!
