Greetings! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) who, for twenty years, has been helping others to live and lead their best lives. While my more recent work has been with Active-Duty service members and veterans, I have also worked extensively with adults of all ages in a variety of settings, such as inpatient and outpatient. I have far-reaching experience with helping people to manage addiction, process trauma and loss, cope with mental illness, and take on the challenges of everyday life. I earned my MSW and BS from the University of Utah, but I grew up in Connecticut. I hold the sanctity of the therapeutic relationship seriously and, as such, your comfort and privacy are exceptionally important to me.

Hello and welcome. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 30 years of experience working with individuals, couples and families. Reaching out to a “stranger” to enter your life is the hard part, my goal is to provide a safe environment where you can explore and enhance your strengths that will empower you to find strategies that support you through life’s challenges. Focus on allowing you to become the “captain” of your voyage in life and joining you in various parts of this journey. There are many times in our lives that for brief periods we just need some support and guidance around the challenges we face whether it is intrapersonal (within our own self) or interpersonal (with others), or just coping with changes that occur during our lifespan. Our goal is to empower your inner resources to live your authentic self in this journey of life. I encourage open communication and connection with those I work with. I utilize various modalities and fit the experience to each unique individual, couple or family. It is important that we utilize all aspects of our “selves”, including physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual dimensions.

I am a licensed clinical social worker and certified psychanalyst with certified CBT training as well and a Ph.D in an allied field. I had taught at UCLA, USC, and Antioch Universities and I was asked to try to give and develop a college program at the California Institution for Women, at the time, the only facility for female felons in the state. Shortly, I realized I needed clinical training and went back to school specializing in children and families. Later I moved to NYC to attend The Postgraduate Center for Mental Health, an affiliate of New York University. I did one training for adults (5 years) and 3 of the 4 years for the child and adolescent track. I have worked in clinics as well as private practice in both New York and CT. I hope I may be of service.
