I am an experienced licensed clinical social worker who has worked with patients in mental health, health, and disability settings for 20 years.

Are you entering a new life transition, and need some direction? Do you feel that you are in pain as a couple or in a family situation? I would welcome the opportunity of working with you. I have always felt that my passion in life was to offer support to others and to suggest alternative direction in life.

I will assist you in such areas as decision making, anxiety, depression, grief and loss. I do strengths-based and cognitive behavioral counseling and grief and loss support I often incorporate mindfulness practices during my sessions.
I have a master’s degree in Social Work with a focus on gerontology, but I have had experience in working with children, teens, and young adults.
I have an ACSW certification from the National Association of Social Workers. I have worked as a clinical social work therapist in clinical mental health settings in Winchester, Herndon and Leesburg.

I have done bereavement, advance planning, and leadership training. I have also recently lead support groups on grief and loss, and caregiving.
My recent clinical focus has been to work with adults and seniors, regardless of gender, or background, who have been going through short or long-term life challenges.
Your sessions will be held in quiet confidential office, easily assessable from the Dulles Toll Road and Route 7.

I accept private pay patients and can also accept some insurance payments for I would be glad to provide this information to prospective patients
