Ever since I was young, I knew I wanted to choose a career path that would make a difference in people’s lives.
This interest led me to study sociology at the Montclair State University. In 2007, I graduated Summa Cum Laude with BA degree in Justice Studies after which I began graduate studies at the Columbia University School of Social Work in NY. I obtained MSW degree in 2010 upon which I began professional training in mental health and substance abuse field.
I truly care for all of my clients and work diligently to help find them the answers they seek. I have been trained in several Evidence Based Treatment (EBT) modalities targeting addiction and mental health disorders: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy at the Beck Institute for Cognitive Behavior Therapy and Massachusetts General Hospital Psychiatry Academy; Motivational Interviewing, Trauma and Addiction at the Center of Alcohol Studies at Rutgers University; Level 1 training in the Gottman Method Couples Therapy- research based roadmap to help couples manage conflict and increase satisfaction and intimacy; along with Executive Leadership Certificate Program at the Cornell University.
In 2018, I have completed certification for New Jersey Certified Clinical Social Work Supervisor and provide clinical supervision to peers and professionals seeking clinical licensure.
I have worked with a variety of people dealing with circumstances that are unique to their lives but ultimately, I believe, all of us experience similar struggles and triumphs.
