I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with experience in treating adolescents, young adults, and adults addressing a variety of issues including relationship conflicts, depression, anxiety, pregnancy, postpartum, self esteem, divorce, job loss, chronic illness, identity exploration, trauma, loss, and grief.
I take a nonjudgemental supportive approach in my work with clients. In my practice, I draw from more than one framework. My approach pulls from person-centered therapy, as I acknowledge the relevance of a person’s own perspective of one’s life, and role within one’s community and environment, in moving toward a desired change. We all possess the capability for growth, within ourselves, and with guidance and support, we can achieve greater clarity and understanding of ourselves, our hopes, goals, and feel our best.
I have a Bachelors degree from Cornell University and a Masters degree from NYU. I have had my LCSW in New York and New Jersey since 2006. Prior to my private practice work, my experience includes work as a psychiatric social worker at psychiatric hospitals, and a clinician at a college counseling center, and mental health programs.
Presently, I am in private practice in two locations; Ridgewood, NJ and Brooklyn Heights, Brooklyn. I specialize with emerging adults and adults. As a woman who has gone through life’s transitions from young adulthood, to adulthood, and motherhood, I understand the role changes within our family relationships and the overwhelming responsibilities and stress to manage in our daily lives.
