About My Training
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the state of CT; license no. 003464. I accept the following insurance for individual sessions:
Anthem, BCBS, Cigna, Connecticare, United, Oxford and Medicaid (HUSKY).
I began my career in therapy as a prevention educator at a sexual assault crisis center. Since then, I have performed intensive treatment for clients with trauma and other significant mental health concerns, and as a Residential Clinician at a substance abuse Treatment Center for those suffering from substance abuse.
I have received advanced training in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, mindfulness based therapies, and in traumatic stress. I strive to balance therapy between a supportive exploration of clients' deepest concerns, clinical effectiveness, and a focus on creating meaningful life change.
I also serve as adjunct faculty in the Health and Human Services department at the University of Bridgeport.
I hold a Master's of Science in Clinical Mental Health from the University of Bridgeport.
