I love the work I do! I work with a wide range of clients – children, adolescents, adults, elders – addressing a full range of issues: anxiety, depression, trauma, addictions, loss, chronic illness, life transitions, and aging.
I have particular interest in working with couples and families to strengthen their interpersonal skills and improve their relationships. I bring personal experience to help parents become more effective with their children and find joy in being a parent again.
I am a clinical social worker with over thirty years of experience as a psychotherapist and feel very fortunate to love the work I do. I received my Masters in Social Work from Boston College and have advanced training in child and adolescent treatment, family and couples therapy from Boston University and the Family Institute of Cambridge.

I have worked with adults, teenagers, families, young children and couples. During my time at the University of North Texas I had the honor to study under the nationally and internationally renowned play therapists, Drs. Dee Ray, Sue Bratton and Gary Landreth, all authors of many leading textbooks in their field. As a result I especially enjoy play therapy as a way of help young children from an early age heal and avoid the potential pitfalls and pain that could otherwise lay ahead.
Other areas of interest include grief therapy, anxiety, depression, sexual identity as well as functional, healthy living with a focus on nutrition, exercise and wellness. I also spend several years working with older adults and clients facing terminal illness either themselves or within their family.
I am bilingual and can provide counseling services to the German speaking community. I received my Masters level degree in Mental Health Counseling from the University of North Texas in Denton.
