My services are available for men and women of all ages. I focus on using people's personal strengths to help them overcome their day-to-day challenges. Much of my clinical experience has been focused on helping men overcome personal challenges and helping them expand on their communication skills.
I've been providing counseling services for over 10 years. I have a Bachelors degree in Criminal Justice from Quinnipiac University and a Masters degree in Clinical Mental Health from Southern Connecticut State University. I'm currently a licensed Professional Counselor in the State of Connecticut and I'm also a National Certified Counselor.
I began my training as a group facilitator at The Consultation Center in New Haven, CT and then later provided individual counseling at The Dixwell/Newhallville Clinic in New Haven. For the past 11 years I have been a clinician at Bridges: Young Adult Services located in West Haven CT. I currently provide individual and family counseling for young men and women ages 18-30. Additionally, I supervise and teach a number of interns from local universities.
Working in the non-profit sector has afforded me a rich experience in helping a number of people with a variety of challenges. My experience includes treating Clinical Depression, Anxiety, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Substance Abuse, Grief, and poor self-esteem. I use a variety of therapeutic techniques which include Motivational Interviewing, Accelerated Resolution Therapy, Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, and Cognitive Behavior Therapy.
