I am a graduate of Florida State University and New York University, where I received my Bachelors and my Masters degrees respectively. I am currently a PhD candidate in the Counseling program at Montclair State University. My dissertation focus is on cross-racial supervision. As a doctoral student and candidate, I have participated in numerous research that focus on multicultural issues in counseling and supervision, including issues relates to race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, spirituality/religion, and adoption. Following the completion of my PhD, I plan to become a full-time professor of Counselor Education while continuing to practice therapy in a private practice setting. Additionally, I am an adjunct professor of counseling –having taught classes at Montclair State University, St. John’s University, and currently at Molloy College.
I have experience working with clients who have suffered from anxiety, depression, marital issues, self-esteem issues, suicidal ideation, eating disorders, and much more. Additionally, I believe that cultural factors are critical to the way we navigate through life. I work hard to address cultural matters, to understand how these may impact our perception of the world. I have an integrative theoretical approach where I am grounded in Person-Centered principles, but utilize tenets from Reality Therapy.
