I graduated with my bachelor degrees from Stony Brook University as Valedictorian for both Psychology and Sociology. I went on to receive my Graduate Degree in Social Services with honors from Stony Brook University. After graduation, I sat for my licensing exam and earned my Social Work License. I worked to help others through the difficult processes associated with various ailments; such as MS, dementia, PTSD, amputations, depression, anxiety, and other conditions effecting cognitive and physical functioning. I completed six years of clinical training, qualifying me sit for the clinical exam, and become a Licensed Clinical Social Worker.

I studied Psychology & Sociology because I wanted to learn, how the mind works,& how we allow society to influence the way we think & behave. Approximately 10 years ago I began working with individuals with various mental health issues; seniors with dementia, caregivers,& Veterans.Customizing treatment to achieve the desired goal.

I come from a military family & understand first hand about the sacrifices made by those who serve our country. I recognize the strong bonds between people & their pets; how they provide companionship & support;& act as a motivating force. I rescue and train dogs to assist in therapy & treat pet bereavement.
