I am the owner and lead psychotherapist at Renewed Life Mental Health Counseling, PLLC in Amityville, NY.
Caring for others has always been a part of my nature. Helping people is what motivated me to become a psychotherapist. I believe the best therapeutic experience is one in which the client discovers their strengths, find their voice and develops into one's best self. I have a listening ear, a nonjudgmental disposition and a desire to help people conquer their challenges.
I welcome all individuals, couples and adolescents. Those that are experiencing anxiety, depression, stress-related issues, relationship issues, phobias, trauma-related concerns, as well as grief and loss. are recipients of quality care, support in a safe, non-judgmental environment.
My main therapeutic approaches are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Person-Centered Therapy (PCT). I also offer Christian Counseling to members of faith who are interested in integrating their belief system with therapeutic care.
I hold a Bachelors degree in Psychology along with a Master's degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Messiah College. I am a national certified counselor (NCC) and a certified integrative mental health professional (CIMHP). Through complimentary alternative medicine (CAM) I provide health and nutrition options for clients who are struggling with depression, anxiety or insomnia. I am trained in EMDR therapy for those that desire to overcome trauma. I provide Christian Counseling for those that desire integration of their faith.
