I am a license eligible clinical psychologist who specializes in working with children, adolescents and adults. I'm trained in play and individual therapy for issues ranging from anxiety and mood disorders to ADHD, autism spectrum and other behavioral disorders. Some of specialties include psychological trauma (sexual/physical abuse, neglect) and LGBT issues. I also conducts psychological evaluations and assessments to help develop a more clear mental health diagnosis. I earned my doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology from Nova Southeastern University and completed her clinical internship at Pennsylvania Counseling Services.
I am still accepting new clients and am offering phone and video sessions via Zoom or Doxy for clients who are distancing or quarantined. I also have specialized training in systemic family therapy and parent education/guidance. I have experience providing social skills treatment for children and adolescents through group therapy as well.
