24 years of experience
Solution oriented

Hi! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I have a license to practice in NY, MA, PA, NC, SC and VA. I have been practicing as a therapist for 24 years. I enjoy working with all ages (children, adolescents, and adults) and still find my work joyful and I appreciate each client I meet and have the honor to work with. I have worked with: individuals, couples an families that have had conflicts between different members, adults and children with grief therapy, with others that suffered with depression, anxiety, stress. I have seen that working with all different cultures and issues has made me a better therapist and I have impacted many lives for the better.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

In our first session we will have introductions. I will ask questions with regard to obtaining basic information of your address, etc., explain how I engage and practice therapy. I will then ask you to tell me what you think I need to know and what you want out of therapy. The initial session is 60 minutes to give us enough time to engage and speak to one another. Sessions after that are 45 minutes.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

Having worked as a therapist for 24 years with various ages, organizations, cultures and obtaining advanced education in therapy models, I believe I can assist you with whatever issue you may want to resolve. I have the strength of the years I have worked and what I have learned not only from my work but from the clients I have worked with.

My treatment methods

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

I have been using CBT in my practice for over 20 years. It helps numerous clients challenge reoccurring thoughts and manage their anxiety. We will use CBT to recognize how their thoughts, feelings and behaviors influence each other. We will then use that knowledge to change your thinking patterns, which will help you to lead a less anxious and stressed life.

Couples Counseling

I have been practicing couples counseling for the last 15 years. All couples experience conflict. For some it’s battles about money; for others it’s a sex life that’s lacking or a pattern of constant arguing. And the coronavirus pandemic has added yet another potential stressor: more time at home together, which can exacerbate tensions or expose hidden cracks in a relationship. Therapy can help. Contrary to what some may believe, it’s not about finger-pointing — who did what or who is to blame. Rather, “couples therapy provides tools for communicating and asking for what you need. The therapist is not for either partner in the relationship they are for the relationship.

Family Therapy

I have been practicing Family Therapy for 24 years. Family therapy is a form of group psychotherapy (talk therapy) that focuses on the improvement of interfamilial relationships and behaviors. A family unit is a group of people who care about each other. In family therapy, a group can consist of many different combinations of loved ones, such as parents/guardians and their children, siblings, grandparents, aunts and uncles, friends, kinship caregivers, etc. Family Therapy can help with situations such as: Adjusting to a new life change (like moving) or a medical condition. Changes and challenges that come with aging. Death and grief. Relationship conflicts, such as parent-child conflict or sibling conflict.

Grief Therapy

I have been practicing Grief Therapy for 24 years. Grief counseling is a way to help grieving individuals process, accept and adapt to loss. Grief counseling offers an opportunity to talk about your feelings and get support. One component of grief counseling is learning what to expect from grief. This can encompass methods such as laying out the possible stages of grief a person may or may not go through, such as shock, anger, bargaining, depression, acceptance and finding meaning, which can help with normalizing the intense thoughts, feelings and even behaviors that have surfaced since a loss.
