Offering a holistic approach to psychotherapy, I have been accompanying and supporting adults and couples for over 20 years, as they uncover their richest self.
With advanced degrees in clinical social work from The University of Michigan and grief/spiritual counseling from Fordham University, I have been privileged to treat adults in various mental health settings in both Maryland and Washington, DC, including CPC/Chestnut Hill, Family Services/Sheppard Pratt and the Washington Hospital Center.
I gained valued first-hand knowledge in geriatrics; parental care-giving; palliative and hospice care; grief/loss; and end-of-life issues during
my time at a long-term care facility. These opportunities led to my serving as a consultant for Hospice Caring while also providing
Elder Consultation for families and caregivers.
Having worked in the corporate world in New York City as well as having served for two years as a volunteer in Appalachia, I bring a variety of lived experiences to my practice. I welcome working with culturally-diverse adults as well as the geriatric and gay/lesbian populations. Additionally, I successfully
treat families coping with chronically mentally ill or terminally ill relatives.
With post-graduate training in psychodynamic psychotherapy from Georgetown University and advanced training in Guided Imagery and Mindfulness, I address myriad emotional issues in long and
My therapeutic style is interactive, honest, open, and empathetic, as I am deeply aware that engaging in therapy takes courage and a true investment of time, money and energy.
Know that I have the deepest respect for, and learn from, the people I work with as they grapple with the profound challenges of getting unstuck in their lives and making hopeful changes, as I myself have.
