As a licensed psychologist in New Jersey, I obtained my Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from Seton Hall University, South Orange, New Jersey (APA Accredited). While my clinical training and rotations exposed me to the full spectrum of pathology, it was my one year internship at the APA accredited Bronx Veterans Affairs Hospital, Bronx, New York, that was instrumental in guiding me to recognize that facilitating the personal growth in others is my calling.

Enhancing my formal education is the knowledge and experience I gained from a 28 year career with the New Jersey State Police (Captain, retired). The many positions held and assignments performed afforded me countless opportunities to assist the public, fellow troopers and officers from other agencies – in their hour of need.

Additional facts about me: I come from a family of five children, was a college athlete, serve our community weekly with special needs sponsorship and remain committed to living a lifestyle that embodies mental and physical wellness.
