“Behaviors is what someone does, not what they think, feel, or believe”
I am a graduate of Widener University with a bachelor’s degree in Psychology. I have worked in the mental health field for over 20 years and enjoy being a positive support in many people’s lives. My experience includes working with individuals with developmental disabilities at Woodbine Developmental Center for over 17 years. I have not only dedicated my career to helping others, but also my personal time, working with people with a variety of mental health and behavioral health needs. I have been a long-time volunteer for the Special Olympics both as a coach as well as a unified partner. Currently, I am a full-time employee of the State of New Jersey with the Division of Developmental Disabilities where I secure residential housing for clients linked with DDD services, as a Community Program Specialist. In my current position I work with both the client and support staff to ensure that the client is receiving the most appropriate and well-deserved care.
I am excited to begin providing Behavioral Assistant services through BestLife Counseling. I enjoy working with youth to enhance their communication and interpersonal skills. I strive to be a positive, dependable, support for individuals that I work with, as well as their families. I look forward to working with you and your child to ensure they don’t just live a good life, but they live their best life.
