I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with extensive experience in outpatient mental health and substance abuse clinics, both domestically and internationally. Due to my variety of work settings, I have worked with individuals from a wide range of cultural backgrounds, abilities, and differing sexual and gender orientations. Many of my patients have described me as calming, compassionate, and easy to talk to.


My education includes a Masters Degree in Clinical Social Work from New York University, in addition to a Bachelors Degree in Women’s Studies from George Washington University. I have post-graduate training in Motivational Interviewing, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Object Relations Therapy and Mindfulness. I am also a graduate of the Eating Disorders, Compulsions and Addictions program from the William Alanson White Institute.


In my practice I specialize in the treatment of addiction, anxiety and depression, anger management, relationship problems, sexuality and identity, and low self-esteem. I work with adults, couples and groups.
