I am a licensed certified social worker  who is dedicated to helping individuals, couples and families find solutions to deal with life's challenges.  With over 25 years of experience in psychotherapy, EAP consulting and coaching, I am able to work with a broad spectrum of clients and problems.  I have a BA from Syracuse University and an MSW from New York University.




Areas of Expertise

I specialize in treating the following problems:

  • Depression/Anxiety
  • Relationship/Marital Issues
  • Addictive and Compulsive Behaviors
  • Grief/Loss
  • Anger Management
  • Domestic Abuse
  • Eating Disorders
  • Work/Career Issues


Finding a therapist who is the right fit is important.   My goal is to help you identify the stumbling blocks that are interfering with your emotional well being and developing  tools to enhance your self-esteem, improve your relationships and find satisfaction in life. My approach is focused and interactive.  This can range from teaching communication skills to improve your relationship, to understanding how your thoughts can affect emotions and behavior or to identifying deeper, underlying problems.
