Education & Training

I received my Masters in Social Work from New York University in 2004.

In 2005, I received certification in Trauma Studies from New York University's International Trauma Studies Program. 

In the 15 years since I have been a practicing licensed clinical social worker, I have traveled to Africa to advocate for women's rights, worked with Holocaust Survivors at a major Manhattan Institution and I have trained counselors on trauma-informed care when working with substance use disorder, as well as eating disorders. 

Most recently, I was the clinical director at the Addiction Institute of New York at Mt. Sinai-St. Luke's Hospital Campus. I have worked with adolescents, young adults and adults struggling with substance use disorder and disordered eating on and off during my career, and recovery aftercare remains a speciality and passion of mine.

Over a decade ago, I became more interested in mindfulness-based therapies. I have found them to be incredibly effective along with CBT to help treat anxiety, grief, trauma symptoms, as well as many types of addictions.

I have completed a certificate in Family Systems Theory, CBT, DBT, and Trauma Studies.

I believe there is never a time to stop learning, so that I can continue to offer all of the most up to date treatment interventions to my clients.

I am currently an adjunct professor of Social Work at The Graduate School of Social Services at Fordham University, where I focus on Clinical Practice Across the Life Span, as well as Death and Dying. 

All in all, the goal is to get you to on the path to a more balanced and meaningful life.
