I was born and raised in New Jersey and moved to Maryland twelve years ago. I am experienced in individual therapy while treating those who suffer from anxiety, depression ADHD, behavioral disorders, health & wellness, body image, self esteem and women's issues. I have worked in a variety of different settings including a community mental health agency, school based therapy, intensive outpatient program and a group practice. 

 

I love being able to teach those who want to learn more and will provide them with consultation and/ or supervision to be able to achieve those goals. I have been helping new social workers gain more knowledge in the field through a variety of settings. 

 

In addition to the work that I do as a social worker, I am very active in the fitness community. I am a certified personal trainer as well as a Crossfit coach for both adults and children. Through this work, I have been able to incorporate fitness and nutrition into the practice along with mental health.

I am a MD Board of Social Work approved supervisor for those that are working toward their own licensure.
