About Me

I attended Fordham University in New York City for my undergraduate degree in philosophy. I received the Phi Sigma Tau award for graduating in the top 1% of the country . I then attended Palm Beach Atlantic University in West Palm Beach for my graduate degree in mental health counseling, graduating Magna cum Laude.

As to work: for four years I worked directly under the auspices of the head psychiatrist of Sandy Pines, which is a locked psychiatric hospital for children up to the age of 18 in Tequesta Florida. I have also worked briefly at a place called Suncoast Mental Health where I was a therapist for adults as well.
Beyond The above, I have been in private practice since May of 2014.


My therapeutic approach is solution focused and proactive. Working as a team, we try to gain biographical insight and to confront obstacles, thereby changing and developing skills that lead to confident decision-making and lasting solutions. My work is characterized by empathy, optimism and collaboration. I am straight forward without being harsh, and encouraging without being judgmental.

I work with individuals confronted by various personal problems such as dating and relationship issues; infidelity; Break-ups and divorce; parenting; career matters; depression; anxiety and stress management and many more.

My clients depart from our counseling sessions feeling stronger, empowered and self-aware. This ultimately enhances their ability to connect on a more intimate level in all interpersonal relationships.

I primarily use techniques adapted from psychodynamic theory, cognitive behavioral therapy and interpersonal neurobiology. These disciplines combined together create a powerful lens through which we can understand our inner lives with more clarity and improve our relationships with others.

"Seen many on the other sites, while they look great visually I believe the best therapist profiles I have seen on this site. Also, they are transparent in showing the therapists and their qualifications upfront."

"I enjoyed setting goals for myself which are personal only to me. I liked that I had to identify different problems areas and work out a process to meet, achieve, and alleviate that problem.

The focus to be a positive person always was a great reminder there are always ups and downs in our lives. I have learned to be more positive with this class. I have learned to control my anger when speaking to my husband. Use of my tone of voice, speaking softly, not over speaking or talking over each other. Not trying to make him agitated, but controlling the conversation for a positive conversation. It's OK to not agree on everything, but advise him that you do not agree and that's your opinion. I also like the interaction with the therapist thru the computer and thru voice. I did not care for the typing of responses back and forth with the first therapist. The second therapist listed to my responses and provided me with written feedback in the different sections or journal.

"The website is extremely insightful with amazing worksheets to help you understand the process of helping yourself. The entire idea around the website is for you to train your brain on how to help yourself in the future instead of constantly relying on a therapist - it truly helps you move forward!"

"This program helped me to focus on changing and recognizing the cause of unacceptable behavior. I also want to add that I was very concerned at age 80 that my issues would not be comprehended by a Therapist much younger than I. After all 80 years is a lot of baggage. I have been very pleased with my interaction with my therapist. I definitely was understood. The worksheets helped me to understand me, too."
