About me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Work in New York with 17+ years of professional work experience. I have experience helping clients with trauma and abuse, parenting issues, relationship issues, foster care, adoption, abandonment, sexual abuse & anger management. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I think that we all have the power within ourselves to ensure that we live our best lives. I truly believe that we do not get well by getting over, we MUST go through - we have to walk the path towards inner happiness and fulfillment, and along the way, we have to feel. Sometimes we have to feel pain, sadness, and loneliness and remember that there will be light at the end of the tunnel. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. I am here to support & empower you in that journey.
