I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and I have been in practice since 1984. I have a degree in Medical Social Work and a certificate in Substance Abuse. I have worked with adolescents, adults, couples, and families. My specialties include work with women's issues, trauma, PTSD, life transitions, depression and anxiety, and mindfulness training. I believe in the power of relationships to heal and clients natural desire to grow toward health.

I have had specialized training in dual diagnosis, relaxation/mindfulness for anxiety, grief and loss and marital/divorce counseling. I have worked with teenagers transitioning into college, and recovering from substances. I have also worked with women dealing with body isssues and pregnancy/menopause concerns.

I believe that the body has the innate desire to move toward healing. I work with clients on using their strengths, and coping skills to live more positively. My combined background in medical social work and mental health helps clients examine how both the body and mind can work together to heal.
