It is important to establish a healthy relationship to move forward with managing changes in your life. I would like to provide some information about myself and my counseling style, to determine if we would be a good fit.

I have 20 years of social work experience. I received my Master degree from New York University in 2000. I was employed 18 years as a case manager for a large health system. My experience working with clients has been managing cases related to anxiety, panic attacks, depression and crisis intervention, substance abuse and domestic violence. I have also worked with chronically ill clients and their families to better cope with their ongoing needs. I am passionate and experienced with counseling related to the LGBTQ+ community. I am skilled to provide CBT and DBT therapy styles.
