Finding a therapist or counselor with an approach that is right for you is a process that can be both rewarding and challenging. I offer a safe environment where you can be yourself and explore the areas that bring you to counseling now.
My Master’s of Social Work degree was earned at Fordham University in New York City in 2002. Prior to that I earned a Master’s of Science degree in Human Resources Management from the New School also in New York City in 1993. I received my Undergraduate degree from the State University of New York at Buffalo in 1991 with a BA in Psychology. I became a Licensed Master of Social Work in NY and planned to open a private practice in NYC but plans changed when my husband and I decided to move with our, at the time, 4 year old daughter to Miami.
