About Me

I am a licensed clinical social worker. My clinical areas of expertise include aging and health issues, child development, and services for people with disabilities (developmental and mental health). My interest in how different cultures affect mental and physical health outcomes developed due to my time doing home visits to medically challenged individuals in need of mental health and community services in upstate New York and in urban and suburban New Jersey. As an undergraduate college student I majored in Anthropology (cultural) which started the process of broadening my understanding the human experience.

My approach is gently inquisitive, collaborative and diverse, whereby I work with clients to select an approach that is both comfortable and results oriented. I have recent post graduate training and experience in most of the currently used psychotherapeutic techniques used to help individuals with anxiety, depression and other issues.
