Licensed Clinical Social Worker
“We tend to seek Happiness. When Happiness is actually a CHOICE.”
This does not mean that everything is perfect… I have no magic wands. However, I believe that our thoughts can either move us towards happiness or away from happiness. This is true even if you had a difficult childhood, or experience turbulence in your marriage or your job is not ideal…
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Pennsylvania and a member of the National Association of Social Workers. I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work from Slippery Rock University in 1993. I received my Master’s Degree in Social Work from the University of Pennsylvania in 2001. I have previously worked in the child welfare system and served as a foster parent in the Lehigh Valley.
I specialize in working with those dealing with anxiety, depression, grief/loss and abuse issues. I often work with clients who just feel “stuck”. I enjoy working with blended families and divorcing couples around co-parenting issues. I also help couples struggling with communication problems to rediscover love, respect and intimacy in their relationship.
My practice focuses on personal empowerment with a creative approach. I help clients make decisions based on their core values while building on strengths in order to face current obstacles and view the past with a new perspective of understanding.
