As a licensed clinical social worker, in New Jersey and New York, I counsel individuals and families who face a variety of challenges in their life. The first few years of my ten year career as a social worker was focused on working in non-profit organizations like JASA, Mount Sinai Hospital's Caregiver Program, the Alzheimer's Foundation of America and the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Within these organizations, I provided counseling to individuals and families coping with elder abuse,family caregivers of individuals with Alzheimer's disease and other health related complications, and to individuals with Multiple Sclerosis.
In 2010, I opened up my own private practice in NJ and NY. My focus then centered on providing counseling to individuals who were experiencing anxiety related to problems in their relationship(s), difficulty managing their time, trying to balance multiple responsibilities and/or coping with certain medical conditions. Six years later, I continue to work with clients in an office setting but have also expanded my work to include providing video counselingto individuals who, for a variety of reasons, are not able to see me in my offices.
My Philosophy My desire as a clinical therapist is to help individuals overcome their challenges and lead a healthier more balanced life. I don't subscribe to a "one size fits all" approach and don't guarantee success. What I do offer and promise is compassion, non-judgment, a willingness to listen and a desire to help you overcome your situation. Our work together will be dictated by a pace you feel comfortable with and will consist of learning how to reduce your worry, anxiety and/or feelings of hopelessness. My goal is to make you feel better when you leave my office than when you came in.
I strive to accommodate my clients' schedules as much as possible by offering evening and weekend office hours as well as providing counseling sessions in Spanish. If you have any further questions, feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org*or (718) 314-9280.
