After having interned at a substance abuse treatment facility for two years, I served as the coordinator for an adolescent substance abuse program. I became very comfortable working with individuals struggling with the emotional impact of substance abuse as well as the difficulties surrounding maintaining one’s recovery.
I currently have daytime and late afternoon openings
I have been providing therapy to individuals and couples for over twenty years. I enjoy working with adults and older adolescents. I specialize in depression, anxiety, relationship issues, career/life transitions, and women’s health issues including eating disorders, infertility, pregnancy loss, and menopause.
