My career as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker spans over two decades. In 1998, I earned a Master's Degree in Social Work, along with a Master's Degree in Non-Profit Management, from New York University and have been working in the mental health field ever since. I have worked as a therapist, clinical supervisor, director, and administrator in outpatient and residential mental health programs in New York and New Jersey.
I am passionate about what I do and about teaching and mentoring others in the mental health field. I have taught dozens of graduate students from Columbia, Fordham, Hunter, NYU, Rutgers, and Seton Hall and hold a Certification to provide Clinical Supervision in New Jersey.
I primarily work with young adults and adults who are dealing with depression, anxiety, trauma, or issues related to stress management, major life changes, work, identity, or performance improvement. I also work with High School Athletes who are struggling with mental health issues related to or impacting their sport. In addition to providing talk psychotherapy, I am trained in EMDR, Motivational Interviewing, Certified in HeartMath, and have a Certificate in Sports Social Work.
My favorite personal stress management activities include watching sports, home improvement projects, and spending time with one of my favorite therapists, my dog, Maggie (the original "Magnolia").
