I am a Licensed Clinical Social worker who has been in private practice for over 25 years. I specialize in working with adults with childhood trauma and assisting stressed professionals to reconnect with their bodies and themselves in order to create more balance in their lives. I also work with people of all ages who are grieving significant deaths and losses.
Clients have told me that they appreciate the gentle, caring and safe environment that I provide. It allows them to explore their feelings, change behaviors, heal and grow. In psychotherapy we will work together to find ways to deal with issues that concern you. You can discover more of who you are, address problem areas and learn how you can live and happier, more authentic and fulfilling life.
I have a Master’s Degree in Social Work from Bryn Mawr College, a Master’s degree in Psycho-Educational Processes and an Elementary Education Degree from Temple University. I have worked both directly and as a consultant in many human service areas including community mental health, medical social work, in hospice – both as social worker and director of bereavement, grief counseling and geriatric care management.
I regularly attend conferences and engage in continuing education programs in order to keep myself knowledgeable about treatments that are effective for my clients. I have advanced training in many different therapy modalities including Gestalt Therapy, Rubenfeld Synergy, Hypnotherapy, Psychodrama, SandTray, Grief and Bereavement, and Treatments for Trauma and Dissociation. I am a Certified Rubenfeld Synergy practitioner, an interfaith minister and I enjoy offering labyrinth experiences and providing educational programs about them locally and at professional conferences.
