I am a Columbia University trained therapist and licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) with over twelve years of experience providing individual and family therapy to children, adolescences and adults spanning the life cycle. I provide parent coaching and treatment for depression, anxiety, substance abuse and issues of grief and loss. I am trained in DBT ( Dialectical Behavior Therapy),which focuses on mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotional regulation and interpersonal effectiveness. My passion is helping people achieve their best self through goal attainment, overcoming obstacles and adjusting to life’s many changes.
I specialize in Bowen Family System Theory. This theory helps us in understanding the self within the context of family dynamics, both through our histories and our current relationships. I am dedicated to helping people based on their unique needs and strengths and I believe we all have the capabilities within ourselves to effect change and improve our own lives. I look forward to meeting with you and together creating a partnership for change.
