I have lived and practiced in Sarasota since 1994, with previous practices in Washington, DC and New Jersey. I am a graduate of Boston University (BS in Occupational Therapy) and The Catholic University of America (MSW in Social Work). Over my 35 years of practice I have continued to develop and add new specialty skills and techniques to my repertoire. I have always valued being a lifelong learner.
I listen deeply and with great care to each individual's story and concerns. My focus is to bring an expanded awareness and clarity of thinking to each client so that we can effectively work together to relieve stuck thoughts and emotions, resolve traumas, and find solutions for improved well-being and sense of empowerment.
I enjoy practicing the "Love Languages," giving affirmations, service, gifts, and quality time in my practice and relationships.
