My Education, Experience & Background: I was born and raised in New Jersey and moved to Maryland ten years ago. I received my Masters of Social Work from Rutgers School of Social Work in 2008. I am an LCSW-C that has worked with children, adolescents, adults, families and groups in various outpatient settings. I am a MD Board of Social Work approved supervisor for those that are working toward their own licensure.
Specialties & Passions: I am experienced in individual therapy while treating those who suffer from anxiety, depression ADHD, behavioral disorders, health & wellness, body image, self esteem and women's issues. I have worked in a variety of different settings including a community mental health agency, school based therapy, intensive outpatient program and a group practice. In addition to the work that I does as a social worker, I am very active in the fitness community. I am a certified personal trainer as well as a Crossfit coach for both adults and children. Through this work, I have been able to incorporate fitness and nutrition into the practice along with mental health. If this is something that you think would be a benefit to you, please do not hesitate to reach out and we can work toward a more holistic approach.
Not so Specialties: Because I have been in the social work field for over 10 years, there are the populations that I do not feel comfortable working with. If you are looking into couples counseling, have a personality disorder or need higher intensity levels of treatment, I would be more than happy to refer you a network of therapists that I have grown to trust.
