I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 19 years providing psychotherapy and have managed several programs over the span of my career. After graduating with a masters degree in Clinical Social Work from New York University, I started my career in 1998 as a forensic evaluator and therapist working with child sexual and physical abuse victims and their non-perpetrating parents, as well as adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse. After relocating to New Jersey, I have held supervisory and management positions in a myriad of settings, including an inpatient psychiatric hospital, a Partial Hospital and Intensive Outpatient Program, and several traditional outpatient clinics.
As a practitioner, I am trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and many other treatment modalities. I have dedicated my career to supporting and treating adolescents, young adults and adults, specializing in depression, anxiety, PTSD, symptoms related to sexual abuse victimization, family discord and school/work/peer related difficulties and conflict.
I have served as a guest lecturer at Rutgers University, provide clinical supervision to newer graduates and graduate-level students and provide presentations in the community to bring education and awareness regarding mental health disorders and effective treatment options.
