I would like to help you live a life, full of happiness through counseling; healing, growth and discovery. I have been working in the counseling and mental health field for more than 10 years. This practice specializes in treating individuals and couples. Through years of experience, I am confident that no problem is too great to overcome.
I use specific therapeutic interventions such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Motivational Interviewing for primary interventions. I currently specializes in Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR) interventions to assist clients in coping with negative experiences. My own personal childhood experiences with trauma gives me a personal passion in helping others to heal, grow and discover.
I have worked in many different settings and with many populations. For a more complete look at my relevant work experience, check out my LinkedIn profile. Populations I have primarily served are adults struggling with trauma, and with symptoms of anxiety, and depression. I believe everyone can benefit from talking to someone outside of his or her family and social circle. Having an objective non-judgmental space to be your authentic self is very important.
I received a Master’s degree in Community Psychology with a concentration in Forensic Psychology from the University of New Haven. I’m a professional member of the American Counseling Association and the Connecticut Counseling Association. Currently in addition to Quality Counseling, LLC. I work as a Program Coordinator for a non profit agency that provides outpatient counseling services to individuals with substance use disorders, severe trauma histories and other significant mental health disorders.
