I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and I have been working in various aspects of the mental health field since 2002. My work has covered residential, community and outpatient settings, which together has primed me for our work together. I hold a Bachelors Degree in Psychology from Hoftsra University and a Masters Degree in Social Work from Adelphi University and I am licensed to practice Social Work in Connecticut and New York.
I often describe myself as a Social Worker by trade and by heart. Meaning, I'm passionate about serving my community and the mode by which I choose to do so is through psychotherapy. Taking care of yourself and living a fulfilling life is something that I want to be accessible to every person, regardless of their circumstances.
Although my approach is varied, it is most often based in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Mindfulness Based Stressed Reduction. However, my views are holistic and our work will probably emcompass not only your emotions, but also your family history, lifestyle, and spirituality.
