About

Start where you are, use what you have, do what you can. This is my basic premise from which I practice my clinical approach. Often times life throws many curve balls that makes you feel overwhelmed, stuck, lost and fearful. During these times growth and change can seem like a far fetched idea and can affect you well into adulthood, but life is not meant to be lived this way. I am a New York State Licensed Social Worker with over 10 years of experience working in child welfare, hospital behavioral health settings and schools which have afforded me the opportunity to craft my skill of helping others live fulfilling lives.
My goal is to empower individuals by using the right tools, a supportive environment and the use of strengths based, person-in-environment framework. Through collaborative therapy work, I can help you build on your strengths to navigate life's stressors and live your best life.
I provide individual and family counseling targeting issues relating to depression, anxiety, grief, trauma, issues related to childhood experiences and phase of life transitions. So, are you ready to live the life you deserve? Give me a call and together we can get you on the path to a better you.
