I am a licensed clinical social worker in the state of Delaware with 10 years of experience working with individuals and couples, adults and adolescents in a variety of settings with people who present with anxiety, depression, grief/bereavement, stress management, life transitions, substance use, bipolar, and other mental health issues. Therapy is a partnership in change, a path to gaining insight to your life. I focus on you the person and your strengths, looking at you holistically and individually as a plan of care is created centered around your needs and goals.

As a trained meditation teacher in the mindfulness tradition of Vipassana, which implies seeing deeply or clearly, penetrating and illuminating reality, I utilize this approach in my work. The practice of mindfulness offers a way to radically transform our vision, understanding, and engagement of and with our life transitions.

I specialize in cognitive behavioral therapy and mindfulness and insight based approaches to treatment. I continue to study and gain more insight into my own approaches, providing the most current evidence-based, therapies for your growth.
