I am a clinical social worker who provides psychotherapy to individuals across the lifespan. I treat a number of mental health disorders, support women with postpartum depression and anxiety and provide a neutral ground to individuals, families and couples. My focus is to help individuals heal, energize and became aware of their inner strengths. We achieve this by providing a neutral safe space, listening to your concerns and customizing a treatment plan. My goal is to help you grow from your struggles, heal form your pain and move forward to where you want to be in your life. I received my MSW from Syracuse University in 1998 and have worked at JCCA in NYC, I worked for AMAC school in New York as the school social worker. My work experience includes private practice, running social skills groups and doing early intervention work on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. I also provided crisis response work through the Red Cross following 9/11.
While relocating for a few years to Atlanta, I worked in hospice for Kaiser Permente before I headed back to the northeast to my position at RWJ Barnabus Health System where I also work part-time providing care to women with postpartum depression and anxiety.
During my career, I became a mom of a child with special needs. I’ve always been involved with my son’s education and worked with my town parent group as a chairperson for Two River Parents of Special Needs Children. In my work as a therapist I support parents and families with children who have special needs in therapeutic and pragmatic ways. I often share my referrals and experiences and draw upon my own highs and lows in the IEP process.
