At times, life can present us with obstacles that are difficult to navigate and though we know we need to make changes we don’t always know how to begin. We all need support and an empathetic ear and with that we are all capable of adapting. I have worked with children, families and adults for more than 20 years as they have adjusted to life’s circumstances. Over that time I have seen the impact that talking, listening and empathy can have in our lives.
I am a licensed clinical social worker who specializes in the treatment of children, adolescents, families and adults. Using a variety of treatment methods, my practice focuses on helping individuals struggling with anxiety, depression, adjustment, self-esteem, communication and loss. My work with children also includes specialized knowledge of feeding dysfunction such as picky eating, sensory anxiety and food phobias. Additionally, I have significant experience supporting families who are confronting the effects of chronic and life-threatening illness.
I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology at the University of Chicago and went on to obtain a Master’s of Social Work from Loyola University of Chicago. Working in both Chicago and later Pittsburgh, my employment background includes behavioral health treatment and pediatric health care social work.
