Professionally, I am a Yale Medical School trained clinician who has devoted to my work for over 20 years. I seek to utilize my extensive experience in private practice, schools, hospitals, and psychiatric facilities to contribute to my ability to assist others in negotiating the challenges of life. My heartfelt desire is to partner with people to help them reach their personal goals and potential. I am a supportive therapist who believes that we both are required to be active participants in the process for treatment to be effective.
After receiving my Master’s degree in Clinical Social Work I was selected to participate in a competitive fellowship program at Yale Medical School where I received specialized training in a variety of areas including mental health and psychiatric disorders as well as neurological disorders. This training has aided significantly in my ability to assess and provide goal directed treatment to my clients as well as develop and work collaboratively with other professionals and clinicians involved toward the goal of providing support and relief for those who struggle.
