I received my MSW from the University of Michigan in 1992. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW). Additionally, I am a Certified Psychoanalyst, having completed post-graduate clinical training in Psychoanalysis from the New Jersey Institute for Training in Psychoanalysis.
I have worked as a psychotherapist since 1992 providing individual, couples, family and group therapy. My additional experience includes serving as the Vice President of Programs and Services for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society in Paramus, NJ.
During my undergraduate training, I worked at Project Safe, an organization for battered women, providing crisis intervention and assistance to women in abusive relationships. Following my graduate work, I worked at Family Service and Children’s Aid as a psychotherapist providing therapy to adults, teens, and children. As Director of Born Free, I ran FSCA's intensive outpatient substance abuse program for pregnant and newly delivered women. After relocating to New Jersey, I worked at Children's Aid and Family Services as a psychotherapist, ran psychosocial groups in middle schools, provided short-term therapy through their Employee Assistance Program and crisis intervention for employees of various businesses. In addition to working in program planning, development, and management at Jewish Family Service and the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, I have provided clinical supervision for other therapists and have had a private practice since 2000.
I now work full-time in private practice. My style is warm and non-judgmental and I am sensitive to the needs of individual patients. With over 20 years of experience, I have the skills to help people work through difficult issues.
