About Me

I consider myself fortunate to have worked in the mental health field for over 20+ years. I have a Master's Degree in Clinical Social Work from New York University , as well as Post- Master's Education/ Advanced Certificate Degree from NYU.
My background is varied , with significant experience in Disaster Mental Health / Crisis / Trauma ; Foster care and Adoption , Chronic Disease. Mood/Bipolar Disorders, ADHD, Depression & Anxiety, Sexual Abuse Trauma, Persistent Psychiatric illness, Couples Treatment, Academic -related Issues , etc.
I am passionate , and deeply committed in my mission to help others navigate through their unique life journey. I utilize a collaborative approach to therapy, wherein we work together to find solutions and alternatives.. I support others in their effort to see life through a different lens... To consider other life perspectives , with the ultimate goal of forging a sense of hope, healing ...and a new pathway forward .
I truly believe that we all have inherent gifts and strengths. However, sometimes we encounter difficulty accessing the power we all have within us to succeed and overcome life's challenges.
Everyone is fighting their own unique battle: to be free from the live in the present...and to create their future . You are not alone.
Life can be more difficult than we often anticipate at times; steering us onto unpaved roads, throwing us unexpected curve-balls... Sometimes , piling way too much on our plates at once.
Therapy can be the missing link: to facilitate your healing , to support you in living a healthier life... and in leading a more productive life .
Be your authentic self...
It would be my honor to assist you in your journey!
