Profile
“The secret to my success is helping clients recognize their strengths within to propel them to achieve goals never thought achievable before.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
When I was in the US Air Force, I decided to dedicate my life to helping relieve individuals, couples, and family caregivers of pain caused by anxiety and depression. I attended Columbia University where I earned a master’s degree in social work. I continued my Columbia education and earned a doctorate in family and community education. I am a New York State-licensed therapist whose practice spans 20 years of private and public outpatient support.
What should someone know about working with you?
I recognize that past experiences can shape an individual's outlook but do not define a person. The secret to my success is helping clients recognize their strengths within to propel them to achieve goals never thought achievable before. I place great emphasis on getting to know my clients personally to effectively apply my educational and professional training as a cognitive behavioral therapist. I believe that each client has his/her own individual pathway to living a full, rewarding, and joyous life.
What motivated you to become a social worker?
I have personally had to deal with anxiety and feelings of depression related to the passing of my mother. It enabled me to be sensitive to the pain of others around me. People seemed to be drawn to me for support and I was able to give it. As the widow of a veteran and a veteran raising two children, I again had to cope with feelings of anxiety and depression. While working at an Air Force outpatient clinic, I was able to positively impact the lives of clients and decided to further my career as a clinical social worker upon leaving the military. I continue to be motivated to help people cope more effectively.
