As a professional, I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor with experience counseling teens and adults through their emotional health issues.  I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from St. Lawrence University and went on to receive my Master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling from Marist College.  During my Master’s program, I interned as a counselor at a college counseling center, and after graduation, I worked for 5 years counseling teens, adults, and their families.  


I understand how relationships with family members, difficult friendships, school and work commitments can all impact one’s mental health.  I am comfortable treating individuals with a wide variety of issues including depression, anxiety, trauma, stress and family conflict.  I also have a unique understanding of the parent/teen relationship.  I am skilled at, and enjoy, working with individuals undergoing life transitions.  Going to college, getting a new job, starting a new relationship or getting married can all cause stress.  Change is an inevitable part of life, and it can be scary and challenging, too!


I have specific training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing.  That said, one of the strongest predictors of success in therapy is the therapeutic relationship:  the relationship between therapist and client.  I’m a person, too!  I take a humanistic approach in my practice.  That means that I’ll treat you as an equal.  After all, I’m not the expert on you - you are!  With my training and experience, and your insight and capacity for growth, we can work together to make some real change in your life.


As a person, I am a lover of good food, cats, and reading.  I have wanted to be a therapist since I was in elementary school.  I am truly passionate about my work, and I can’t imagine doing anything else.
