About Beautiful Minds

We bring solace, healing and lasting recovery to individuals and families.

New Jersey’s Premier Mental Health Care

Beautiful Minds was founded in 2016 with a clear vision in mind: to make affordable, solutions-oriented mental health care accessible to individuals and families in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. We’ve worked hard ever since then to make that vision a reality.

We offer a full scope of treatment services for adults, adolescents, and children of all genders and ages. Our commitment to our clients is demonstrated by our compassionate atmosphere, collaborative approach, and flexibility in providing the best care possible.

Our Approach

Our approach to mental health care emphasizes four key principles:

    • Convenience and accessibility for clients
    • Coordination of care among all providers
    • Evidence-based solutions
    • Individual focused


Convenience and Accessibility

Making mental and behavioral health care more accessible to our community drives us in our mission. At our three convenient outpatient clinic locations in Sicklerville, Linwood, and Cape May, we provide outpatient care for depression, anxiety, PTSD, trauma, relationship issues, and many other mental and behavioral health challenges. But we knew that wasn’t enough. That’s why we also provide in-home and telehealth services to expand our ability to deliver services. We believe that every individual and family should have access to services at the location and level that best suits their needs.

Coordination of Care

Through communication and collaboration with other providers we are able to deliver a higher level of care that is informed by a fuller picture of the client’s needs. This collaborative approach helps our Beautiful Minds providers in their assessment and delivery of care but also helps all other providers involved, thus benefiting the full circle of care involved in caring for our clients.

Evidence-based Solutions

Therapy and mental health care treats the most crucial aspects of our identity: our minds, thoughts, emotions, and the way we perceive ourselves and others.

Our brains are complex and powerful. It is essential that treatments addressing the mind be backed by scientific study, have been demonstrated to be effective and safe, and have shown they can deliver a favorable result. At Beautiful Minds, we firmly believe our clients deserve scientifically proven approaches that they can trust.

Individual Focused

We see every client as an individual, distinct and different from the challenges they may be facing. Because each of us is unique, we heal in different ways. At Beautiful Minds, we create personalized care plans tailored to each person’s individual needs. Our providers work closely with each client to create a care pathway that reflects their specific circumstances and goals. Your journey is unique to you alone and your care plan should be the same.

I've always had a deep passion for helping people from a very young age. My mother worked as I was growing up in a helping profession and I believe a bit of that also has to do with where I am today in my field of work. I currently work with many individuals and families using different techniques and strategies to make a difference in each family I serve. 
It's always been my job to ensure that each family and individual we serve receives the best services possible and continues to flourish in today's world!

I had the privilege to spend time in people’s homes, helping them navigate systems and find a path to treatment. The adults and teenagers I work with, individually and with family supports involved, have made the conscious decision to meet with me in hopes of feeling better in whatever way is genuine to them, whatever they may be up against emotionally, mentally and behaviorally. In return, I find fulfillment and pride in developing a trusting, empathetic, and effective therapeutic partnership with the goal to process issues at hand, find accessible and effective solutions, and help them get back on track to a happier, healthier life!

I believe that therapy should be a partnership. Within that partnership we create an environment that encourages healing, compassion, and growth. I also understand the importance of providing culturally competent care to my clients. As we all come from different walks of life, it is important to recognize and apply those unique perspectives within the therapeutic setting. My focus as your therapist would be to help you lead an attainable and enjoyable lifestyle. Every individual should have a therapeutic experience that fits their specific needs. Therefore, I utilize several therapeutic approaches. I have experience working to help individuals manage life transitions, depression, anxiety, and trauma.

I am a firm believer in a strengths-based approach to therapy. What experiences an individual has lived through and overcome form the basis of their resiliency and ability to succeed. With the use of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, I believe that an individual's strengths and experiences will pave a path to deeper understanding and personal growth. It is never too early or too late in life to try therapy. My goal is always your success and for you to leave therapy feeling better than when you started.
