As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I work with children, adolescents, adults, and families experiencing various mental health, developmental, and transitional issues as well as social/behavioral challenges and school problems. My approach centers around solution focused strategies using the strengths of my client. When working with individuals I strive to help them cope with various stressors by teaching and practicing tactics to help reach their goals. With my Masters in Social Work from Columbia University, I have had the opportunity to assist adults, children, and families for almost 20 years. I have experience in a variety of settings including schools, psychiatric/substance abuse rehabilitation hospital, and women's homeless shelter to name a few.
