About

I have been working in the mental health field for over 20 years. My experience is with individuals and their families in a variety of settings, which include the following: community organizations, hospital settings, residential, outpatient, in-home, and within the school setting. I have experience with a wide range of clinical issues, which includes, anxiety and stress related issues, depression, anger and aggression, intellectual/developmental disabilities, mild autism , trauma and abuse issues. Additionally, I’ve worked with family of origin issues, relationship issues and LGBTQ related issues.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in the state of Florida. I’m originally from New York City, where I received a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology, from Hunter College and my Master’s degree in Social Work, from Columbia University. I’ve lived in Florida since 1999.My counseling style is client-centered, holistic in nature and culturally sensitive.
I strongly believe that everyone needs someone in their life that they can share their troubles and triumphs with. It takes a lot of courage to come to the realization that you could benefit from seeking assistance outside of yourself. Congratulations on taking the first step to self-discovery and inner healing. Good luck on your journey!!
