Experience

In 2010 I began my training in Counselling after a few years of voluntary work with the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) in New York.  I enjoyed my volunteer roles in helping those affected by these chronic health issues, which often affected their mental health, so much so that I changed my career in law to psychology.

After completing my counselling degree and training,  I started working full time with the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America Headquarters in their IBD patient help center which was a National resource for patients and loved ones with these chronic inflammatory bowel diseases. I provided educational resources, support, and counselling to patients and their family.  In addition, I continued to volunteer in founding and facilitating a support group for teenage girls living with these diseases.  

Most recently before moving abroad to the UK, I was working at a Women’s Health center based in Brooklyn, New York. Here I provided individual longer term counselling to women and teenagers.   I worked with clients in better managing anxiety disorders, depression, chronic health concerns, stress, relationships, trauma, and career changes.  I also have experience running groups and workshops providing psychoeducation on stress management and coping skills.

More recently re-locating to England with my family, I am now working privately out of a clinic in Upper Basildon.  I practice in a person-centered approach, always listening to the client, providing empathy, and creating a safe space for my clients to talk through their concerns.  I also often incorporate Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) therapy techniques in my practice.  This may help a client to better understand their current thoughts and behaviours, and how there may be room for change towards a healthier mindset.  

It is important to have supports in place- whether it be friends or family, but the additional support of an unbiased, objective professional can be of great help too.  I do hope to hear from you if you feel you could benefit from counselling sessions.
