I believe that my role as a therapist is to help my clients find a way back to themselves. In that way, my role is really to be a guide in helping you tap into your own innate wisdom, strength, and courage. 

My passion for DBT runs deep. I love how it offers a comprehensive set of skills that I can both teach and use in my own life. I value how DBT is an evidence-based treatment based on science and research, while also acknowledging mystery, connection and shared humanity.

I received a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Fordham University and a master’s in counseling psychology from Temple University. I have been foundationally trained in DBT from Behavioral Tech (Dr. Linehan’s research and training company) and additionally have completed various advanced DBT trainings, such as DBT prolonged exposure with Dr. Melanie Harned for treating complex post traumatic stress disorder. I believe that my work as a registered yoga teacher, and having been trained in trauma aware yoga, compliments being my work as a DBT therapist in order to treat the whole person fully. I am one of the first therapists to have worked here at DBT of South Jersey and am honored to be a part of a small group of counselors in New Jersey to hold the Linehan Board Certification in DBT therapy.

When I’m not being a therapist, I am usually in the company of my husband Joe, my son Jude and my cat Hermione. I enjoy yoga, running through South Jersey, reading, being outside, and being in the company of my family and friends. I find that my most cherished times are usually found in the seemingly mundane, ordinary moments.
