Welcome! Thanks for reading my profile in search of enhancing your own emotional wellbeing. Together we can work towards your goals as you define them. Know that I grow from our healing partnership as well, and value our shared collaboration. I want to help you to find ways to feel more empowered and comfortable in your life. My clinical background is as follows: I got my BA from the University of Pennsylvania, and I graduated with a Masters in Social Work from Fordham University in New York City in 1992. Since then I have practiced with individuals in New York City, and since 2006 have worked with clients in North Carolina and Tennessee. I have developed deep roots in Western NC and East Tennessee. Along the way I have had a career that included management of behavioral health programs, working in hospitals and in the field, with people with a wide range of emotional needs related to their behavioral health.

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

Our first session is pretty simple. We get to introduce ourselves to each other. This is when I hear your concerns and difficulties, hopes and aspirations… essentially why you are seeking help. Ask any questions that might make you feel more comfortable. This lays the groundwork for the healing processes that we will create as we move forward. And, it’s ok to be nervous. What’s most important to me is that we are a good fit for one another, and that may take a few sessions to determine.

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

Simply put, I believe my greatest strength in working with people is that they feel that I am really hearing them (and I am). Another strength of mine is to be non-judgmental. I choose to let you know that I have had my own struggles with self-esteem, relationships, addictions and many other challenges in life, and I know firsthand that they are surmountable. I hear who you say you are, and might challenge that vision; the vision that is based on the stories you have believed about yourself; and then help you to claim your most authentic self. This allows for the best chance for a more fulfilling life - working as a team and establishing trust with one another.
