What I Do

I have experience working in inpatient and outpatient settings, with children, adolescents, adults and older adults. I have managed a community-based program for older adults and clinically supervised therapists in a social service agency. Straight out of grad school, I worked as a home health/hospice social worker at a local hospital. I opened up my own private psychotherapy practice in 2006, working with all sorts of issues and life challenges, showing a special interest in Perinatal Mood Disorders.
