Greetings. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with extensive clinical counseling experience in the area of crisis intervention / stabilization, anxiety and depressive disorders management, recovery and wellness promotion. My areas of expertise include mental health, substance use disorders and developmental disabilities.
The last 25 years of clinical experience have enabled me to assist many individuals, couples and families to move forward towards emotional wellness, enhanced relationships, enhanced self esteem, and overall improved quality of life.
My integrative approach to treatment has helped many clients to make lifestyle changes and incorporate recovery principles in their everyday functioning.
Additionally, working with the developmentally disabled and their families throughout my professional career centered on helping each person develop individual coping skills and strategies in helping them manage their lives more effectively. I have also developed an expertise in dealing with sexuality related issues as well as substance abuse issues effecting this special needs group.
As a former Director of Behavioral Health Services for a large agency in NYC, I have presented at many professional conferences and have shared my experience with other providers of service as a facilitator of staff trainings and consultation with program development
