About me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in both states of New York and Florida. I am a Master's Level Certified Addiction Professional (MCAP) in the State of Florida and a Credentialed Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Counselor (CASAC) in the State of New York. I have accumulated thirty-five (35) years of counseling experience. A lot of this counseling experience was earned at Spofford Juvenile Detention Center and Riker's Island Correctional Facility in New York City. In 2008, I was graduated from Fordham University's Graduate School of Social Service with a Master's Degree in Social Work. My internship at Creedmoor Psychiatric Center was with dual diagnoses. After graduation, I worked at Elmhurst Hospital's outpatient clinic for the NYC Health and Hospitals Corporation in Queens, NY and Zucker Hillside Hospital in Glen Oaks on Long Island. I earned my undergraduate degree in English from the State University of New York at Buffalo. SUNY at Buffalo prepared me with an improved perspective on relationships. I believe in therapeutic relationships that are genuinely based in equality and respectfulness. Therefore, I practice Motivational Interviewing (MI), Strengths Perspective, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). My relationships with clients are not ordinate-subordinate, normal-abnormal, or superior-inferior. I am a multi-faceted therapist who does not approach others with one-size-fits-all and cookie cutter treatments. I treat individuals with the utmost sensitivity while addressing their presenting issues. I look forward to speaking with them and listening to them, as opposed to talking at them.
