We are living in very different times than our parents and elders. Who thought we would need to wear a mask to go out in public and keep a 6 foot social distance from everyone? What has happened for some people is that they find themselves secluded from people who are their support system and also with those who abuse the close contact and isolation. I am very much aware of the struggles that can develop when times are difficult. I'd like the opportunity to work with you and help to develop plans that become goals towards your success. I too have been afflicted by the pandemic so I offer true empathy and want to engage with you during this tough time. I bring 30 years of experience working with individuals and families. I have a strong interest in couples work. My nuclear family has been my foundation and I am fortunate to have parents in their 80's, married 51 years and are still as in love with each other as the day they met. Sure, there are ups and downs but it takes hard work to move beyond the difficult times to enjoy the beautiful ones. I am a graduate of Columbia University Master's in Social Work program and offer over 30 years of experience to our relationship. I look forward to meeting with you.
