I have been practicing psychotherapy for more than 20 years and have worked with young people for my entire career. I have practiced in a variety of child welfare and child/adolescent mental health settings, including the foster care and adoption systems, inpatient and residential care facilities, community-based programs, and private practice. I am also a regular facilitator of Girls Lead, a grant-funded school-based leadership development program for middle school aged girls.
I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Clinical Psychology from Tufts University and my Master’s Degree in Clinical Social Work, with a concentration in Child Welfare, from Boston College Graduate School of Social Work. I hold an active Clinical Social Work license in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and participate in ongoing professional education to maintain licensure and continually enrich my practice. It is my true honor and pleasure to do the work I do each day.
On a personal note, I live with my family in Chester County and strive to practice what I preach, placing high priority on self-care and life balance. I enjoy adventuring with family and friends, reading, playing piano, traveling, taking long walks, going to concerts and live theater, singing and dancing (embarrassingly), and laughing until tears run down my face.
