About Me



1

I am a dually licensed attorney and clinical social worker specializing in individual, couples and family therapy.

With over 20 years experience as a licensed clinical social worker, I provide counseling to individuals, couples and families in a private practice setting working with a broad spectrum of clients. Among my areas of expertise are the treatment of Depression, Anxiety, and Relationship Challenges.

In addition to being a compassionate and competent therapist, I also teach as a Part Time Lecturer at Rutgers University - both on the Newark and New Brunswick campuses to undergraduate and graduate level social work students.  On a statewide level, I've presented clinical workshops at the NASW-NJ statewide conference to behavioral health practitioners speaking on the topic of Couples Counseling Through a Socio-Cultural and Economic Lens & Competing Power Dynamics Among Couples.

I am an interactive, strength-based, and culturally competent therapist. My therapeutic approach is eclectic and designed to provide support and practical feedback to help clients effectively address personal life challenges.  I integrate complementary methodologies and techniques to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each client. With compassion and understanding, I work with each individual to help them build on their strengths and attain the personal growth they are committed to accomplishing.

I am a Certified Clinical Supervisor offering clinical supervision to LSWs and independent clinical consultation to practicing therapists.

My family consists of my husband of 13 years, my teenage stepdaughter, 10 year old cat, and 2 year old turtle.
