I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who earned both a Bachelor’s in Psychology and Master’s in Social Work from the University of Pittsburgh. I have a strong background working with kids as a family based therapist, in the schools, and in an outpatient setting in community mental health. In my almost 20 years of therapy experience I have worked with clients from 5 to 65 years of age.
My areas of special interest include ADHD, depression, anxiety, working with autism spectrum disorders, school related issues, parenting skills, self esteem issues, and grief related issues.
I am a strong advocate of my clients taking an active role in the therapeutic process. Therapy is not something you buy off the shelf. I will work with each client to tailor and individualize the process to meet their needs and goals. I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, mindfulness skills, family therapy, and anxiety management skills.
Appointments are available in our offices near Pittsburgh in Squirrel Hill.
