About Me

Hi;
I have over 40 years of experience and expertise in the field of mental health as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, a Licensed Professional Counselor and Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist . I have thoroughly enjoyed spending my career treating the elderly, adults, adolescents, children and their families in private practice, residential , hospital and educational settings. I've received specialized training in trauma treatment , cognitive behavioral therapy, PTSD treatment, play therapy, solution focused therapy and client centered therapy, among many other treatment modalities .

I truly believe that every individual deserves help, treatment and the opportunity for hope. I've been told , numerous times , that I possess a wonderful sense of humor; I believe that laughter , along with compassion , empathy , kindness and understanding are mandatory to be give an individual the therapeutic outcome they deserve.

I've held several administrative positions in mental health including directing a residential treatment program for severely emotionally disturbed children and years later I was the Director of Psychiatry for a major children's medical center.
I spent several years working with adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities helping them navigate the system and building relationships within the community.
In private practice I worked with adults struggling with relationship issues, stress issues, issues related to raising difficult to manage children and adolescents and parenting issues.
This past year has been extremely difficult for adults, children and families. As a result, it has created stressful situations for parents. If you've had difficulties with these issues , I taught parenting classes for numerous years and I'm more than happy to help with issues related to anxiety, depression and any school related problems your children or adolescents may be experiencing as a result of the pandemic.
Please feel free to reach out to me, I'm here to help.

I look forward to working with each one of you !

Carolyn is very interested in me as a person and finding ways to improve my issues and concerns. She has been great to talk with regarding behavioral and communication patterns I've developed from childhood trauma and experiences, and is quick to respond when I send her a message in the portal. I am thoroughly enjoying using teencounseling.com for therapy and Carolyn has been wonderful and supportive.
