Jersey Shore Counseling, LLC


I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, Licensed Clinical Alcohol and Drug Counselor, a Licensed Registered Nurse, Board Certified in Psychiatric and Mental Health Nursing by the American Nurses Credentialing Center, and I am a Certified Case Manager and Legal Nurse Consultant.

I completed my graduate degree in Counseling, summa cum laude, and I have over 25 years experience.  I also graduated summa cum laude with a Masters Degree in Nursing. I specialize in individual, couples and family therapy, working with a broad spectrum of clients. I maintain a private practice with offices in Red Bank and Toms River, NJ.

In addition to being a prominent therapist, I present seminars at professional conferences and to general audiences. As a school teacher, I wrote a text that is still used in the curriculum today.  I have also written training manuals and provided staff inservice trainings. In addition to my full time counseling practice, I teach Psychology and Addictions Counseling courses at Ocean County College to college students who want to become Addiction Counselors. In my capacity as a Legal Nurse Consultant,  I provide supportive counseling to my clients for the legal issues they may be facing.

I am an interactive, solution-focused therapist.  My therapeutic approach is to provide support and practical feedback to help clients effectively address personal life challenges.  I integrate complementary methodologies and techniques to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each client.  With compassion and understanding, I work with each individual to help them build on their strengths to empower them to attain the personal growth and balance they are committed to
