Welcome to A Therapy Life Center!

It is my personal belief that therapy works best when a trusting relationship is established between the client and therapist. A Therapy Life Center was established to help others and to create a place within the community that can inspire positive change in our youth and their families. As a licensed therapist and social worker, my goal is to create a safe, nurturing and confidential environment where clients feel understood and have the opportunity to reflect and change.

I have specialized training and expertise working with youth who are oppositional, defiant and cause sexual harm to others. I believe in the importance of educating parents and working within the family to adjust the dynamics that perpetuate challenging behaviors. Treating the core problem and not just the symptoms of the issue is fundamental to ensuring treatment will be effective long-term. Using a cognitive behavioral approach, I help clients make a connection between thoughts, feelings and behaviors while changing the core beliefs that hinder their ability to be their best self. As a wife, mother and step-mother, I have a personal understanding of the challenges faced when blending a family and the support new mothers need early on postpartum.

My career started at Youth Consultation Services in 2010, where I supported at-risk youth and their families. I graduated with a BA in Psychology from Ramapo College and then received an MSW degree from Rutgers University. I obtained my license in Clinical Social Work and have since gained experience working within an out-patient program serving children, adults and families in NJ.

If you feel you are ready to commit to bringing about positive change in your life, I encourage you to take the first step. A Therapy Life Center is currently serving children, adolescents, adults and families. Group therapy will soon be available. Please call or email to inquire about services and availability. I look forward to working with you and your loved ones.
