About

I am an experienced Licensed Clinical Social Worker who specializes in the treatment of children, teens, adults and First Responders. After leaving St. Luke's Roosevelt Hospital (NYC), I opened my practice in New Jersey continuing to help patients struggling with ADHD, ODD, RAD, depression, anxiety, self esteem, gender identity, adoption, PTSD and marital discord. I specialize in Compassion Fatigue that occurs with First Responders & Health Care Professionals. My goal is to help you in an effective & efficient manner learn how to manage the issues that bring you to therapy. We will work together so please call me to discuss.
I have worked providing therapy to children & teens for over 30 years. I provide expertise clinical diagnosis and treatment to resolve your challenges.

I invite you to contact me to discuss the reasons why you are seeking therapy while I understand that this is not always an easy step.
