About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, a member of the American Mental Health Counselors Association and a registered nurse. I see clients at The Starting Point in Westmont, New Jersey. Therapy is hard work and little is accomplished without effort and some risk. I am very aware of that fact and work to make your experience a good one. Most of us live better when we focus on our present lives, when we are mindful of what we do, think, and feel and when we live with purpose. Therefore, these principles are constants in my practice. Perhaps most important to you, respect, kindness. support and safety are basic to all of the therapies with which I work.
