Licensed Social Worker
I have been a licensed social worker in Pennsylvania since 2006. I completed my undergraduate work at the University of Delaware. I earned my master’s degree in social work from Marywood University. I also hold a graduate degree from Northeastern University and Harvard University.
Prior to joining our practice, I served as an educator for thirty five years, as both a teacher and administrator in K-12 schools. I have also served as a Student Assistance Program therapist at the elementary, middle school and high school levels in the Lehigh Valley and as a behavioral specialist with a local behavioral health organization.
I have worked extensively with both children and adults throughout my career. My specific areas of specialization include conflict management, anger management, depression, anxiety, and couples therapy. I am also very effective in helping parents shape rules for their children which are consistent and fit comfortably with what may be divergent parenting styles. My overarching skill is my ability to help individuals communicate more clearly so that all parties hear, understand and accept each other’s points of view.
