About

I work to create hope and connection for all ages. I understand that coming to therapy or asking for help can be a difficult and overwhelming decision for anyone to make. I am here to help make this decision a beneficial and rewarding experience for you and your family. When you step into my office, you will receive unconditional acceptance and advocacy on your journey towards health and wholeness.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 20 years experience in the mental health field, licensed in CT & FL and a Registered Play Therapist. My approach consists of providing a warm, comfortable atmosphere to help my clients feel connected and understood.
I view the therapeutic relationship as a tool to assist clients with developing and deepening their treatment. I want to assist clients and their families with changing how they think about life struggles to include better, more productive coping strategies that can also be used now and in the future.
