About Me

Greetings:
I have always had a deep affection for the field of Human Services since the day my siblings came to me seeking advice for whatever problems they had. That personal experience led me to peruse my affection for counseling.

My educational credentials consist of a Master’s in Human Services, License Professional Counselor in both New Jersey & Pennsylvania, and a National Certified Counselor. Additionally, I have extensive training and experience in empowering "All Things Work Together For Good" to clients from all walks of life.

For more than 30 years, I have been blessed with opportunities to provide therapeutic counseling in systems such as: Child Welfare, Criminal Justice, Educational, Cooperate sector, and Military Family Life (all branches, couples & children). This interaction has provided me with impeccable communication and engagement skills. My eclectic treatment approach is distinct, genuine, and personable using Cognitive Behavioral and Client Centered Therapy. My energetic personality coupled with a sense of humor has always allowed me to engage the most resistant client.

I have come to realize in any therapeutic counseling relationship, to effectively correct thinking and behavioral patterns that produce life long change, the client must be empowered how everything starts and ends with the individual. As a Therapist, I am the instrument that provides a genuine safe space for you to be you while welcoming change inch by inch.

Together, Let’s Do This!!!!

In this world it is hard to find people who are willing and caring to aid us and walk with us through our troubles. I was one of them until I found Paula, who is a sweet hearted kind and caring soul who is willing to walk with you through your battles and aid you. I had some childhood traumas I didn’t know how to handle and work through them I also had problems with with social interactions.You have helped me and my partner get through things and hard moments and improve our ability to understand each other. Thank you Paula for everything you’ve done to help me improve.

Paula is phenomenal! After trying 3 other counselors she was my perfect match. I am so thankful and extremely blessed to have her in my life, she has helped me through a very dark season of my life. Paula listens, she listens to every single thing I have to say, she doesn’t devalue my feelings but challenges me to face them and to find the root. My sessions with her have been life changing. I absolutely love her professionalism, her flexibility, and her care. I would change her for any other counselor in the world.

I’m shocked at how perfectly matched I was to Paula. I’m so happy to have her as my counselor, I feel like she understands exactly what I’m going through & she gives me solutions that I didn’t have confidence to even think about. I can’t wait to see what the rest of our journey will look like.
