I have been with Vital Decisions since 2014. I enjoy empowering clients to make choices that are in alignment with their values and wishes.

My goal is to continue helping individuals through this process with dignity, respect, and comfort. My work here has allowed me to be open with my own family about my wishes leading to very valuable conversations.

After graduating with my Master’s in Mental Health Counseling from Fordham University in 2012, I went on to work with couples and individuals in need of mental health counseling, crisis intervention, career development, and substance abuse counseling.

How to Get Over Being Hurt by Gossip

Ever been hurt by Gossip? Check out an article written by our counselor Karina Cole for the Global Post

everydaylife.globalpost.com If you have ever been the target of gossip, you may have recognized that words can actually hurt! The key is realizing you have power over your emotions and responses even though you cannot control ...


Many of us strive to identify ourselves with what we believe is the true definition of a Christian. During this process, it may also be helpful to know what it is not.

Jesus criticized the Pharisees and the teachers of religious law harshly because they:
1. Cleaned their outsides but not their insides
2. Remembered to give a tenth of even their garden herbs, but neglected justice.
3. Loved praise and attention
4. Loaded people with burdensome religious demands
5. Would not accept the truth about Jesus
6. Prevented others from believing the truth as well


Seeking solitude to spend time in prayer nurtures a vital relationship and equips us to meet life's challenges and struggles. Although finding time is not easy... prayer is the VITAL link between us and God.


Words are so powerful. We should use them with great care.


Sometimes the greatest students get the hardest test!! The Lord is with you even during those "Why Me?" moments.


Each of us are unique!! Yet, some of us are constantly comparing ourselves to others. Sources say there are over 10,000 types of flowers and an estimated maximum of 1.7Million animal species identified on Earth! Can an Elephant fly like a bird or be as colorful as a flower? God made you beautiful just the way you are!


Some say "don't do to others what you don't want done to you"...however it is not verry difficult to only refrain from harming others. It is much more difficult to take the initiative in doing something good for them! Think of good and merciful actions you can do today.


The greatest students get the hardest test! We too will be tested. Because we know that testing will come, we should be alert and ready for it. Remember, your convictions are strong only if they hold up under pressure!

Couples Counseling Emotional Care Associates

Couples Counseling! Sometimes it can be painful to deal with the issues affecting your relationship. However, left unaddressed, these issues can do so much worse.

Description of Couples Counseling from everyday people. Emotional Care Associates.


Light represents what is good, pure, true, holy and reliable.
We hide our light by:
1. Being quiet when we should speak
2. Going along with the crowd
3. Denying the light
4. Letting guilt from our past mistakes dim our light
5. Not sharing our light to others
6. Ignoring the needs of others


We should try to celebrate the steps we take towards our goals. Why wait until our lives are over to have a birthday party?? It's all about the journey!!!


Sometimes we find ourselves searching for things that are right in front of us. We each have exactly what we need to be happy.

Thoughts and prayers go out to all the individuals and families affected by the tragedy in Boston. No one should be made to feel unsafe during a such a joyous holiday celebration, yet sadly it has happened today.


It may be that when we no longer know what to do, we have come to our real work, and when we no longer know which way to go, we have begun our real journey. ~ Wendell Berry


A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.
~George Bernard Shaw
