Welcome. Today you are one step closer to a new you where you feel empowered and on a positive path to growth and well-being.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Licensed Clinical Alcohol and Drug Counselor (NJ) and qualified supervisor with expertise in addiction; depression; anxiety and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. I am currently running three groups: yoga/meditation and two Brene Brown book discussion groups. I graduated from New York University with a Master's Degree in Social Work and Clarkson University/Mt. Sinai School of Medicine with a Master's Degree in Bioethics (specializing in medical and end-of-life counseling). In addition to being a prominent therapist, I contributed to The Center for Ethical Solutions published project The Advanced Directive Steward: Welcome to our Making End-of-Life Healthcare Decisions Count Tool: An Interactive Guide and currently serve on Naples Community Hospital's Bioethics Committee.
My goal is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life worth celebrating. I believe their are multiple ways to reach inner peace, which is why I combine complementary therapies (such as yoga and meditation) with group and individual counseling. While we cannot change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. Together we will unearth behavioral patterns and negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.
As Alexander Graham Bell said, "When one door closes another door opens, but we so often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us", let's find the open door. Please call or e-mail me if you're looking for coaching, guidance and support through a challenging situation. I look forward to working with you.
