About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), who graduated from Rutgers University with a Masters degree in Social Work in 2004. Prior to that I worked for a large investment firm on Wall Street. While there, I was diagnosed with cancer. Instead of looking at that diagnosis as a curse, I sensed that it was an opportunity that ultimately led me to my calling to help others who are experiencing difficulties in their lives just as I was afforded help to guide me through my trials. I have treated many different disorders including depression, grief, anxiety, trauma and the severely mentally ill etc.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Easy to talk to and offers helpful insight. Regardless of what I am talking about, or how many times I switch topics, I feel like I am being heard and understood.
