About Me

Being a therapist is much more than a job to me and I feel privileged to connect with many people in such a meaningful way. I never stop studying and opening to further growth as a therapist and as a person.

I have a Masters in Clinical Psychology from University of Hartford, CT. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, a Gestalt Oriented Psychotherapist and a Certified Yoga Instructor. I work from a mind-body orientation using the framework of Gestalt Theory and Somatic Psychotherapy. I have 25 years experience in a variety of mental health contexts such as crisis intervention, in patient and outpatient care, and couples counseling. I particularly enjoy helping others cultivate and strengthen the mind-body connection. My approach is designed to gently awaken the whole body and increase present moment awareness.

I thrive on acquiring new clinical skills and tools in order to better serve my clientele. I completed a four year clinical fellowship in Gestalt therapy from Gestalt Associates in Psychotherapy, NYC . Additional certifications and training includes: One year training in Gestalt Group Therapy, a two year Certificate in Somatic Psychotherapy, a two year training with the couples institute in developmental couples therapy, and EMDR Levels 1,2, and 3 through the Parnell institute. I am also a registered yoga teacher with a certification in general yoga as well as yoga therapy. I practice as a somatic oriented Gestalt therapist and teach Gestalt Therapy through Rutgers School of Social Work continuing education.
