Breakthrough Therapy Solutions, LLC is offering Telehealth Sessions during the Covid-19 pandemic. Many insurance plans are covering telehealth during this time and some plans are having cost sharing waived. During this difficult time, it is even more important to take care of your mental health. 

During this time of uncertainty, it is understandable that many people are experiencing varying levels of stress and emotions. Now, more than ever, it is critical to make sure that you are taking care of your mental health needs. In order to take care of yourself, your family, or anyone else in your care, it is best to do so with as clear a mind as possible and by practicing self-care. Many people are suffering through  varying stressful situations  ranging from a complete change in routine, unemployment and financial uncertainty, social isolation, fear, concern for loved ones, the grief of losing friends and family members during this time and many other unforeseen circumstances. Many people feel as if they do not have control and the uncertainty of the future is causing immense stress and feelings of being overwhelmed.  

Whether you are at home adjusting to home schooling your children, adjusting to changing family dynamics, have experienced job loss or you are an essential worker who is experiencing stress, anxiety, fear and possible burnout, Breakthrough Therapy Solutions, LLC is here to help. This is also a great time for anyone who may have extra time on their hands to focus on their self-care who may not have taken the time in the past to do so.  Telehealth is a flexible option that can usually allow people to participate in taking care of these needs due to flexibility with scheduling.

About Me

My Approach To Therapy

I am a Board Certified National Certified Counselor (NCC), Approved Clinical Supervisor (ACS) and Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) located in Toms River, New Jersey and currently serve Ocean County and surrounding areas. I have over 6 years of experience working with clients from diverse backgrounds who face various challenges. I also have experience working with different age groups, ranging from children to elderly clients. I use a strength-based, solution-focused approach to therapy in which each client is the center point of the therapeutic process. Each journey is unique and tailored to the specific needs of each client. I do not believe that only one approach can work for all clients. This is why I use a variety of techniques that are based on each person's individual goals and treatment preferences. I believe that everyone has unique strengths that already exist and can be utilized and strengthened through the use of counseling and therapy. I also believe that a person can develop new skills and strengths that can help them reach their goals. I find it imperative to create a safe and nonjudgmental environment in order to build trust with clients and collaborate with them to create a plan to achieve their goals.  I work to help each client increase self-awareness and let go of negative thinking patterns and behaviors and work to teach them new skills, thought processes and behaviors in order to achieve an improved overall sense of well-being. 

I have worked for various agencies in the state of New Jersey providing therapeutic services, including :

-case management

-individual therapy / individual          counseling

-family therapy / family counseling

-group therapy / group counseling

-Intensive in community (IIC) services to children and families



-IDRC (intoxicated driver resource center) education courses and screening

-mandated clients (probation, parole, drug court, DCPP, etc).

-EAP (employee assistance programs)

-Substance abuse treatment
