I am a licensed clinical social worker with over 16 years of experience. I specialize in child and adolescent therapy as well as parenting support and family therapy. Before opening my private practice I worked directly with NYC schools providing clinical interventions to students struggling with issues such as depression, bullying and/or special learning needs. Prior to that I served as the National Youth Program Manager for Gilda's Club Worldwide, designing and implementing programs across the country to support young people with cancer or cancer in their family. 

I have designed and developed curricula on a wide range of topics, including: building self-esteem in girls, sex education & healthy teen relationships, and college and career exploration.

I regularly give workshops and lectures on parenting,child/ teen mental health and nutrition and wellness among other topics.
