I have been in practice for 18 years as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and approach therapy from an integrative perspective. I see women as individuals with unique life stories who are striving to make meaning from experience, find belonging and achieve fulfillment. I view therapy as a place to examine these stories in a joint effort to learn how people have become who they are and to learn more about the life they would like to live.
In addition, I believe that all people have strengths that once identified, have the potential to move them toward the discovery of their own resilience. I specialize in women’s issues, attachment and trauma.
I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts from the College of Wooster, Wooster Ohio and with a Masters in Social Work from Widener University, Chester Pennsylvania. Upon graduation, I began extensive training in an effort to learn the connections between attachment and trauma including regular conference attendance at Attach, Psychotherapy Networker and The Trauma Center at the Justice Resource Institute Conference. In addition, I spent 2 summers training with Daniel Hughes on Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy. Finally, I have been trained in and have been practicing Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) for 20 years.
