I am a NYS Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 15 years experience in integrated mental health and substance abuse care and treatment. As a provider, I have worked extensively in inpatient and outpatient behavioral facilities to address need and care, as well as to streamline and improve services in both inpatient and outpatient settings which I continue to do. I am passionate in continuing to help people achieve their own personal growth and potential. My practice style is goal-oriented and strengths-focused, mutual, integrated, and individually centered. I love working with individual and I provide a secure and safe environment to do this in. My treatment centers on issues and difficulties with: Anger, Depressive Disorder, Mood Disorders, Personality Disorders, Eating Disorders (Anorexia nervosa, Bulimia, Binge Eating), Anxiety Disorder (including OCD and Panic Disorders), PTSD/ Trauma, and Grief and Bereavement.

I have been providing private counseling and behavioral health services for over 15 years.  My focus and experience is in integrated mental health treatment.  I am passionate in continuing to help people achieve their own personal growth and potential.  I find it rewarding, love my work, and very dedicated to helping you.

I am LGBTQIA- friendly and an ally and offer a transgender safe space.  I do not discriminate anyone in my practice on the basis of person's race, color, religion, sex (including gender identity, sexual orientation, and pregnancy), national origin, age (40 or older), disability or genetic information.  

Individual counseling sessions are the only treatment provided, at this present time in the office, in response to public health factors.  The sessions can be in-person, physically (face to face), in the office, virtually (i.e., telehealth), or a combination of both of these modes as is best and most convenient for you.  These are appointment-scheduled only and range from 45 minutes up to 60 minutes long in duration (and/or as required as per your health insurance plan).  

​Due to the Corona Virus-19 pandemic, all groups have been suspended.  This is to decrease any possibility of risk to  you and others.  This will remain in effect until further notice.
