My decision to become a therapist


I always was told that I am a good listener and throughout my early years I found that I loved to help others. My mother was a nurse and I feel I get a lot of my compassionate nature from her.


It wasn’t until I took my first Psychology course in college that I realized this was the career choice for me. I graduated with an undergraduate degree in Psychology and a master’s degree in clinical psychology from Marist College.  After I graduated, I explored the field of psychology and counseling while working in diverse clinical settings and came to love the field of counseling and assisting others in reaching their full potentials as well as growing personally and professionally as a counselor.


I graduated from Marist College with a BA in Psychology and a MA in Clinical Psychology in 2002.  In 2004, I received my license to practice as a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC).  I started my career working with the severely ill in Hudson River Psychiatric Center.  Then shortly after that I started working for National EAP, an employee assistance program where I worked for 4 years providing counseling for employees and their family members and developing and presenting wellness workshops and trainings.  In 2006 I took on the city commute and worked for Value Options (now Beacon Health) where I learned a great deal about insurance networks and claims.

Starting in 2008, I was given the opportunity to develop a counseling center from the ground up.  I was hired by Molloy College as Director of Counseling and spend 10 years at this institution.  Besides the program development that took place, my responsibilities also included clinical counseling, support groups, educational trainings and programs on wellness, developing protocols and procedures for the office, and developing partnerships within and outside the college to support student mental health.  Much of my time was spent doing crisis management and assisting students with their mental health needs. For 9 years, I also taught a freshman class related to transition to college life.

Around 2009, I started seeing clients privately and loved the flexibility of private practice.  I also contracted with organizations to assist with coaching and organizational development. In addition to  working with Triangle Cognitive Therapy, I am conducting psychological assessments for pre-surgical bariatric patients.

I LOVE continuing education and I am always attending workshop, seminars, and conferences to keep up with the newest trends in counseling and mental health.  I have a post-graduate certificate in Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Clinical Supervision, and I am a Certified Critical Incident Responder.

My Approach

Though I always considered myself an eclectic counselor I tend to always gravitate towards Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Motivational Interviewing. I feel this approach works best with setting goals and achieving them. CBT therapy is effective in so many aspects of our life, in school, at work, and at home. These skills are critical when achieving our own life happiness.


Although most of my experience has been with the young adult population, I specialize  in anxiety related concerns, relationship and family issues, transitional concerns, self-image and social problems, and trauma. 

My Goals

My goal is to successfully assist my clients in reaching their goals and positive management of any issues that get brought up. Many times we can’t eliminate our issues or stressors but we can do a lot to manage them better so they don’t affect our daily living, relationships, or personal well-being. A personal goal of mine is to complete my Doctorate in Education (EdD) for Leadership with Diverse Communities which I anticipate completing the end of 2020.
