A warm “hello” to you. Thank you for visiting this site…and for taking the time to learn more about me and my services at Curative Connections LLC.
My Approach to Working with Clients:
I like to look at every situation holistically, “considering everything as a whole” [mind-body-spirit].
I commit to partnering with and helping you in your journey!
I understand many of life’s daily challenges that people experience.
I am very open-minded and non-judgemental as a person.
I am a licensed psychologist — licensed to practice in both North Carolina (Licensed Psychologist, HSP-P) and New Jersey (Licensed Psychologist) — and a Board Certified Sport Psychologist (ABSP, American Board of Sport Psychology). I have been providing services to late adolescents, emerging & young adults, and adults for over 20 years, ten of which also involved being a consultant & clinical resource to a Big Ten university’s athletic division’s Sports Medicine Department and its scholar-athletes, as well as a consultant to a Big East university’s Career Services Department.
I am also an EMDRIA Approved Consultant & EMDR Certified Therapist, trained in applying EMDR Therapy treatment to address various types of traumatic experiences.
I serve as a Board Member for The American Board of Sport Psychology (ABSP) and am a member of the EMDR International Association (EMDRIA).
Born in the Bronx, NY, I graduated in the top 2% of peers and delivered the valedictorian address for my high school graduation. I went on to earn my bachelors degree in biology from Brown University, my masters in education from Cambridge College, and my doctorate in counseling psychology from Rutgers University.
My passion is to help others make connections and have those “light bulb” moments, which moves them closer towards their goals!
