I am a licensed certified social worker and a psychotherapist who works with adults, individually and in groups.

I have an MSW from Temple University School of Social Work, and I have completed training programs in psychoanalytic psychotherapy from The Long Island Center for Mental Health, and in disordered eating from CSAB. My approach is collaborative and supportive with an emphasis on emotional healing and personal growth.

Additionally, my many years in the health care field has encouraged me to think in a bio-psychosocial framework and to emphasize interdisciplinary collaboration.
