Licensed Professional Counselor/ Licensed Clinical Alcohol and Drug Counselor

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and a Licensed Clinical Alcohol and Drug Counselor (LCADC) in the state of New Jersey. I use evidence-based therapies and techniques in Motivational interviewing (MI) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). I also incorporate client-centered and strength-based approaches to help and empower people, so that they can improve their quality of life. I have worked with a range of people from teenagers to adults/seniors with varying difficulties i.e. grief and loss, end of life issues, substance dependence/addiction, codependency, depression, anxiety, personality disorders, anger management, and self-esteem. ​ Teens who participate in daily sports and exercise activities are less likely to transition from opioid pain reliever use to heroin, according to research funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), and published today in Pediatrics.
