About

Whether you are an adolescent or young adult struggling with relationships, life transitions or symptoms of mental health disorders or a parent who feels worried about the changes that you notice in your adolescent or young adult child, I know that you are strong and resilient because it takes strength to look for help. There is a healthy side of you waiting to flourish and I can help you uncover it. I can help ease your load and remove your pain. I am a licensed clinical social worker with over 30 years of experience in the field. I served in various roles over the years: practitioner, educator, researcher and published author.
My areas of expertise are self-harming behavior in late adolescence and young adulthood, families struggles with developmental transitions, stresses of acculturation in immigrant families, dynamics in international adoptions. I am also a professor in the graduate program of Social Work at Case Western Reserve University-Mandel School in Cleveland, Ohio.
My focus is to mobilize my clients’ strengths. The end result is always a stronger family, a stronger community and weaker presenting problems. I use a unique approach that brings forward creativity and human connection. I I would be honored to partner with you to restore joy and serenity to your life and help you reach successful outcomes for your family.
