My passion and desire is to build resilient families from the process of marriage, child-bearing, child-rearing, adolescent issues and blended family systems.
I have an extensive training and experience working with children and adults who struggle with Depression, Generalized Anxiety, school anxiety amongst others. I am extensively trained in Play therapy with children.
I also work extensively with separated/divorced parents and single-parents. I help parents facilitate the process of effective co-parenting that reduces the stress on the children involved. Lastly, I am trained in Perinatal Mood/Anxiety Disorders.
As the Resilience Counseling Founder/Owner, I'm passionate about women's issues and skilled in addressing maternal mental health conditions.
I enjoy and embrace the opportunity to provide licensure supervision to PLPCs. I use a coach and consultant model to enhance the skills of a provisionally licensed therapist. I am extensively trained in many treatment modalities and offer an eclectic model in supervision. I particularly love to train PLPCs that have an interest in play therapy. If you are interested in PLPC supervision, please contact me for a free consultation meeting to ensure that it's the right match for trainer and trainee.
Building Inner Strengths
to Face Life's Challenges
Hello and thanks for your interest in working with me. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and nationally certified by the National Board for Certified Counselors, Inc (NCC) to provide mental health counseling. I graduated from Alfred University in NY receiving my B.A. in Clinical/Counseling Psychology. I
obtained my M.A. degree in Counseling Psychology from Towson University, MD. I have an extensive
training and experience in treating child and adolescent behavior concerns. I have over 15 years of experience working with families, using a strengths-based approach.
I am a Registered Play Therapy-Supervisor (RPT-S) and use play therapy with my child clients. I am also very passionate about perinatal mood/anxiety disorders and have received training in this sub-field. I see new and returning mothers who struggle with Post-partum anxiety and depression. I work with couples to strengthen their relationships and offer divorce counseling to those who are considering divorce or have made the decision to split. Co-parenting counseling is also a service that I offer to divorcing parents. At Resilience Counseling, we believe that our thinking guides our behaviors, and our inner strengths help us bounce back from stress and life's challenges. What phase of life challenge are your facing right now?
In my free time, I enjoy playing board games and soccer with my 3 kids, and getting involved in community projects.
