Born, Raised & Educated in New York City


However, I am a happy transplant to the Hudson Valley and find its abundant beauty and serenity rejuvenating.  I was educated at Barnard College and Teacher’s College of Columbia University. Further cultivating my educational foundation, I was graduated from Yeshiva University’s Wurtzweiler School of Social Work.  I knew I wanted to be a clinician when I was 12 and have spent a good portion of my life acquiring as much knowledge as possible toward that end.

I have practiced in the Public Mental Health field for over 19 years in inner cities like Harlem and Newburgh, as well as rural communities in Orange, Dutchess and Ulster counties.  My career path has seen me directing psychiatric clinics, to working in the psychiatric emergency departments and inpatient facility of a major hospital. I have worked with BOCES children and their families, as well as geriatric patients and their care providers.   

With a wealth of practice experience with children, families and adults, I’m truly doing what I love.  At times, I can be irreverent, but I’m a straight shooter.  Most importantly, I’m patient and unwavering. I guess I never learned the concept of giving up on people.

I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.
