I am licensed in New York with 8 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, & coping with grief and loss. I hold a certification in advanced hospice and palliative care social work and have worked with families, individuals, children, and communities when they encounter sudden loss due to suicide, accidents, homicide, or losses following a chronic or terminal illness.

Taking the first step to sign up for therapy can take courage, and I am proud of you for getting started!
