As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I’ve had the privilege of wordownloadking with adults, youth, couples, and families for over 20 years.  My foundational training at Adelphi University in New York was rooted in psychodynamic theory blended with a family systems perspective.  Over the years, my approach has expanded to incorporate a blend of attachment theory, psychodynamic therapy, Imago Relationship Therapy, Emotionally Focused Couples therapy, Gottman’s Couple Therapy, Developmental Couple Therapy, family systems therapy, and cognitive behavioral therapy.

I am genuinely passionate about my work and enjoy helping people to move toward their fullest potential, either individually, within a couple relationship, or as a family.  I am truly dedicated to lifelong learning as I am always expanding upon and strengthening my clinical skills for the benefit of those with whom I work.  Those who know me describe me as dedicated, genuine, safe, warm, funny, and down to earth.  I consider the process of therapy to be sacred as individuals, couples, and families entrust their feelings, beliefs, histories, and relationships with me as we work together to restore connection, balance, and healing.
