I love the work that I do and am constantly amazed at the strength, resilience and bravery I witness from my clients. I feel honored to be part of each client's individual and unique process of exploration and growth.

In my work I help clients feel heard, find relief from pain and suffering, realize goals and become truly known to themselves and others. I do this by creating a warm, nonjudgmental, safe and confidential space which allows for a process of growth to occur.  I draw from an eclectic mix of theoretical approaches in order to individualize treatment to each client's needs and goals. 

Some of my specialities are in the following areas:
  • depression
  • anxiety
  • loss and grief
  • parenting
  • relationship difficulties/divorce
  • play therapy with young children

I believe that the treatment of children, just like the raising of children, requires support for parents. Being a parent is one of the hardest jobs and is often underappreciated. In working with parents, I help them discover ways to feel confident and satisfied in this role and to foster a positive and appropriate connection with their child. I help parents to: 

  • adjust their role in light of changing developmental stages 
  • develop and set realistic expectations of themselves as parents and of their child
  • meet the challenges of maintaining both consistency and flexibility
  • discover ways to carve out time and space for one's own needs in order to be able to give as parents
  • trust their instincts and know when to seek support 

I received my Master of Social Work in 2003 from Hunter College School of Social Work.
