I received my Master’s Degree in Social Work from Temple University and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with a Certification in Trauma-Focused CBT. I have worked with children, families, couples and adults for over 17 years in a variety of settings, including, schools, homes, crisis centers and the community. In my therapeutic work, I use a variety of modalities, including CBT, DBT mindfulness, motivational interviewing, structural family therapy. I specialize in working with parents on improving parenting strategies and strengthening connection with their children, as well as issues related to: anxiety, phobias, trauma, depression, grief and loss, relationships and conflict. I also have extensive experience working with individuals and families who have been impacted by a family member's addiction.
It takes strength and courage to seek help and support from a counselor, and it is so important for my clients to feel heard and connected throughout their therapeutic experience. I believe each and every one of us is capable of lasting change, and working with a counselor can be the first step in moving towards achieving your personal goals, obtaining a healthier outlook on life, and strengthening relationships.
