I’m a psychotherapist, an author, a researcher, an academic, and the founder of Juno Counseling and Wellness. I know what it’s like to feel like things will never get better, and I’m here to show you the way to the other side.
I specialize in psychotherapy for adult survivors of childhood trauma, anxiety disorders, and relationship issues. I provide therapy for adults, teens, couples, and families, and use a variety of approaches including psychodynamic therapy, existential therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Somatic Experiencing, and Polyvagal Theory, and am trained in the Gottman Method for couples.
Since earning my Master’s and Ph.D. in Mental Health Counseling, I’ve served as a counselor at a hospital, taught mental health counseling at the elite graduate level, published a wide array of books and articles in the field of mental health, and delivered dozens of presentations on counseling and mental health.
But my passion isn’t just gaining knowledge; it’s sharing it in a personal and practical way. With over 15 years of experience helping people heal from complex trauma, I use my wealth of knowledge and expertise to analyze complicated situations, find the root of the problem, and unearth the path to healing. I’ve dealt with a wide array of cases, from working in a high-risk, locked psychiatric unit, to providing Cognitive Enhancement Therapy for people with Schizophrenia. I promise you won’t shock me. Whatever heaviness you’re holding, it’s safe to share.
I love to volunteer and help out in the community by serving on boards, attending charity events, and participating in community-centric programs. I am an alumnus of Leadership Palm Beach County (Class of 2023). I enjoy arts and culture, travel, new experiences, and random knowledge. I am also an animal lover and consider myself both a serious person and someone who loves to laugh. I am originally from Brooklyn, NY
On Founding the Practice
Like many, I come from a dysfunctional home teeming with depression and mental illness. I experienced chronic childhood trauma, culminating in the death of both of my parents in a car accident when I was 17.
In the years following the death of my parents, I felt like good things were meant for other people, but not for me. As I moved into adulthood on my own, I didn’t have the tools to process the way my childhood trauma was showing up in my life.
It was my own therapeutic journey that helped me reframe my story to reclaim my personal power. That’s why I founded Juno Counseling and Wellness: to help you understand the root of your struggles and make positive, lasting changes in a safe, judgment-free space.
I didn’t set out to become an expert in my field.
I set out to learn as much as possible—
and that road brought me here.
Now, I’ve built a team of professional therapists with varied specialties and one commonality: we all believe in the continued pursuit of knowledge.
And we’re here to share it with you.
