Some come to clear your path.
My experience in a variety of mental health settings enables me to offer effective individualized, therapeutic care. My goal is to provide a safe, neutral ground for families and individuals of all ages to engage in thoughtful
The therapeutic focus is to help individuals heal, energize, and become aware of their inner strengths. Therapy is solution-focused and designed to maintain a healthy balance of digging into old patterns, experiences, and thought patterns utilizing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and learning coping skills to effectively manage painful emotions.

It's your path.
Trained in many different modalities, I work with clients to utilize the most appropriate techniques to attain the best therapeutic outcome.
A safe space is created together in order to allow for reflection, awareness, and growth.
For children, I apply play and art therapy as well as talk and family therapy as appropriate to each child and situation.
As a collaborative practice, I work as a team with schools and pediatricians to provide a balanced individualized plan in order to maximize potential for success.
The goal of family therapy is to find more satisfying ways of living for the entire family and not just for one family member.
It is process-oriented and involves looking for patterns of interaction that are both beneficial and a hindrance to the harmony of the family system. Family therapy utilizes different combinations of the family members to provide an opportunity to observe the different relationships and more clearly identify areas of struggle.
I am a licensed clinical social worker who has been working with children, adolescents, adults and families in a variety of settings for the past 20 years. Receiving my Masters Degree in Social Work at New York University, I have been motivated by the idea that people could elicit powerful change not only by examining what is going wrong in their life but by looking at what is going right.
Recognizing and building on strengths is the most powerful form of therapeutic practice.
This is the philosophy that I carry in work with each and every client. Experience as
a private practitioner, a school social worker, and as the primary therapist in an acute psychiatric setting, has culminated my ability to look at all different aspects of a person’s life while still seeing them as an individual.
