About me

My approach is flexible and eclectic, and I adapt the treatment plan to each individual. I enjoy helping clients from all walks of life and have worked extensively within the LGBT community. I hold clinical licenses in both New York and New Jersey, and am board certified by the National Association of Social Workers. I received my Masters in Social Work from Hunter College School of Social Work/CUNY.

I achieved Diplomate Status from the National Association of Social Workers, and was the Greta Singer Memorial Lecturer at Monmouth University (2011); and adjunct faculty for both graduate schools of Social Work and Mental Health Counseling at Hunter College/CUNY. I have also served as a Field Instructor for Columbia, NYU, Fordham, and Yeshiva.

I am an Accredited Teacher of T'ai Chi Chih®, a non-martial arts form of T'ai Chi. I am a member of the New York Zen Center for Contemplative Care (NYC).
