I am very fortunate to have the opportunity to work in a profession which I love…and I truly believe that shows in the work that I do.
In terms of my training, I received my Masters Degree in Social Work from Rutgers University. I have worked in a variety of settings as a private therapist, a clinical director, as well as a consultant for long-term care and hospital settings. I have been working as a psychotherapist in private practice since 1998, and currently provide psychotherapy to individual adults, adolescents, and couples in my Westport practice. I work from an eclectic theoretical orientation and provide supportive counseling while also utilizing cognitive, behavioral, psychodynamic and trauma informed, mindfulness approaches, when appropriate.
I am the Mental Health Consultant for the Adult Congenital Heart Association’s Peer Mentorship Program and speak nationwide on the importance of addressing the psychosocial effects of heart disease. I am passionate about mental health access for all and have a special interest in working with individuals and their families dealing with serious and chronic illness. I live in CT with my husband and two daughters.
