My Approach to Helping
I am an NYS Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 15 years experience in integrated mental health and dual diagnoses and treatment. As a provider, I have worked extensively in inpatient and outpatient behavioral facilities to address need and care, as well as to streamline and improve services in both inpatient and outpatient settings which I continue to do. I am passionate in continuing to help people achieve their own personal growth and potential.
In my private practice, I focus on treating and helping issues concerning and focusing on anger, depression, mood disorders, post traumatic stress disorder, eating disorders, personality disorders, general stress disorders (including obsessive compulsive disorders, panic disorders, anxiety, and phobias), pain management and chronic medical illnesses, and grief and bereavement. My practice style is empathetic, goal-oriented and strengths-focused, supportive, mutual, integrated, and individually centered. I am also a certified Dialectical Behavior Therapist. I love working with individuals and families and I provide a secure and safe environment to do this in.
