I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in New Jersey with over 5 years of experience working as a therapist. I received my counseling degree at St. John's University where I developed the skills to counsel individuals, couples, families, and groups. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, identity issues and existential issues. My treatment approach is to discover your needs and learn about your values. We can find a way to live out your values through daily virtues (behaviors) so that your life and personality are in total alignment. We can discover obstacles that get in the way of your goals and your wellbeing.
I was raised in the Christian faith and am always open to incorporating faith and spirituality in the counseling session. I am all too aware of how important faith is to find meaning, strength, and solutions to the questions and trials that arise. Though we don't all interpret scripture the same, you can trust that I will be coming from an understanding and respectful place when it comes your faith. I can also incorporate prayer and scripture in sessions if requested. If you are coming from a different spirituality but have found your way unto Faithful Counseling, I would encourage you to use any spiritual ritual that would benefit your mental wellbeing. If you are having a crisis of faith, I can also be there in that uncertain time as you deconstruct and rebuild how you approach your faith in life.
My therapy style is client centered and nondirective but I am very active in guiding you to your goal. I am respective of clients leading the session towards wherever they want to go but will always lead you to walk away with tools and a solid conclusion to everything discussed to take with you to deal with your life outside of the session. Sometimes it can be complicated or unclear. However, we won't give up on discovering solutions and insight and will pick up where we last left off. My approach combines mainly acceptance and commitment therapy (to discover your values and live them out) and cognitive-behavioral therapy (to maintain healthy thought patterns and behaviors that encourage wholeness) and combining both to create a lifestyle that contributes to mental wellbeing.
