I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) with 18 years of post-graduate experience in a variety of clinical settings with adolescents and adults. The "LCSW" means that I have a master's degree in social work and am licensed to practice on my own. I have been married for eightneen years and we have three wonderful boys under the age of eleven. 

I have successfully helped people from all walks of life. I welcome people of all ethnicities, regardless of their gender, sexual orientation or religious affiliation.

Clients tell me that they appreciate my casual approach and non-threatening style. Often my most resistant clients, tell me, “I don’t like therapists, but you are the exception.”

I have an approach that is kind and thoughtful; yet, I am able to offer a gentle nudge to move clients towards healing and their goals. I believe that your jitters about therapy will disappear quickly and once we begin working together you will be surprised how easily you can share your fears, frustrations and concerns.

My gift is an ability to blend seriousness with humor, while offering clients feelings of connectedness and empathy.  My goal is to make you comfortable while maintaining a professional and safe environment of respect for you and protecting the strictness of confidentiality.

I look forward to you making the first, difficult step – a phone call. I believe once we connect, you will feel relief as we schedule your first appointment.
