About My Clients

I work best with people who are managing through life changes, health concerns and other stressors that can cause anxiety, stress and symptoms of depression. Life transitions such as work/life balance, parenting, caregiving and medical concerns are a few challenges my clients are facing. I enjoy working with older teens and adults.

My Background and Approach

I have my LCSW and my MSW from Columbia University. I am continuously taking continuing education in the area of DBT, compassion fatigue, Mindfulness Based Psychotherapies, Positive Psychology, DBT, CBT and neuroscience related to trauma and mental health treatment. I have a corporate background and spent many years working in a sales management and training capacity and have a unique understanding of work/life balance issues related to parenting while working for a large corporation. My approach is based on the needs of my client and is collaborative at all times.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I volunteer with the Red Cross providing resiliency training on depression, trauma, communication skills to veterans, family members and people on or about to go on active deployment in our service.
