I am an independent clinical social worker, licensed to practice in Florida, Massachusetts, New York and Texas. I earned my MSW at University at Albany and my BA at Hampshire College.
My approach is collaborative and strength based. I try to create a safe space that allows for a productive therapeutic relationship based on mutual trust and respect to develop. Many years of varied life experience inform my sensitivity to issues of cultural and spiritual diversity. I appreciate the opportunity to work with each of my clients.
I have been engaged in various forms of therapeutic practice for more than 30 years. In addition to recent years in private practice, I obtained invaluable clinical experience working in community mental health at the Brien Center in Pittsfield, MA. and volunteering in residential school treatment at Green Chimneys in Brewster, NY. My practice is informed by Linda Kohanov’s work and Dorothy Becvar’s Soul Healing. I actively seek out and participate in continuing education opportunities in order to maintain an informed, ethical professional practice.
