My education, training and experience span 24 years following completion of a Master's Degree in Social Work from Adelphi University in New York. I have developed strong skills in inpatient, educational and outpatient clinic settings. Most recently, I worked and trained at The Menninger Clinic in Houston, TX for over 3 years. I have developed an expertise and specialization in ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy), addictions and dual diagnosis treatment, and psychodynamic therapy. I use evidence-based theoretical approaches to address each client's and couple's needs.
Prior to my career in mental health, I received my undergraduate degree in Business Administration from The Lubin School of Business at Pace University in New York, and spent 15 years growing into management positions for major corporations in New York and Dallas. This experience allows me to assist corporate and business clients explore their emotional health in the context of their career success and decision making.
Coronavirus Update Regarding My Practice: I will begin seeing patients who are without symptoms or significant exposure to Covid-19 in the office on March 24, 2020. I continue to offer teletherapy through the softward product VSee, which offers HIPAA compliant service. Additionally, LCSW's should soon be able to offer teletherapy through Facetime and Skype, which are not HIPAA compliant but may be more accessible for our patients. Please contact me with any questions you may have or to make/change an appointment.
