About Me

I have been a Licensed Clinical Social Worker for 34 years, working mostly in New York and New Jersey. My specialty practice is working with teens and adults of all ages coping with Depression, Anxiety, Bipolar Disorder, and ADHD. Sometimes individuals have had traumatic experiences from early childhood or adulthood that impact coping with daily living. I provide psychotherapy for individuals who have had traumatic experiences that are impacting their relationships, managing emotional moods swings, or misusing drugs and alcohol. I can provide family therapy and parenting skills strategies for parents seeking guidance for the management of behavioral issues impacting the parent / child relationship.

My therapeutic approach is solution focused and client centered, with compassion and respect for the client. I believe that each person is the expert of their own experiences and future goals, so I take a collaborative and non-judgmental approach, being open to feedback. Through out my years of experience and training I have developed an eclectic "tool box" of interventions from Cognitive Behavioral Treatment, Dialectal Behavioral Therapy, and Psycho-dynamic psychotherapy treatments.

I understand that the first most important step is finding a therapist that instills a sense of confidence, trust, and warm regard. I look forward to talking with you and to answer any questions you may have about my approach to see if we are a good fit. Thank you.
