Anxiety, stress, and panic attacks are my areas of specialty. My unique approach combines cognitive therapy tools with mindfulness and narrative coaching. I received MSW from New York University and I am a Board Certified Coach and a member of Harvard's Institute of Coaching and the International Coaching Federation.

I received my undergraduate degree in communications from Syracuse University and my masters degree in social work from New York University. I have 15-years of experience as a cognitive therapist. In addition, I am a board certified coach and a published member of the International Coaching Federation.

I focus on people rather than problems. I have always felt a deep sense of commitment to creating communities of support. When my hometown of Freeport, NY lost funding for waterfront cleanups, I founded a grassroots, volunteer-based non-profit. That was 29-years ago and today Operation SPLASH is still going strong.

As a founding board member of the Posse Foundation in Miami, Fl., I coached and mentored incredible scholars from diverse backgrounds. I have seen first hand that when individuals feel understood and supported by a scaffolding that we create together, they can excel and achieve their goals.

While traditional therapists look for a cluster of symptoms and diagnose pathology, I see strengths and maximize them. My greatest strength is my ability to help my clients feel more calm.

I practice what I teach and believe strongly in life/work balance. My 90-year-old father, a retired boat builder, taught me that a well-balanced boat will encounter less resistance and go further. In an effort to achieve this, I spend time with my family and friends, exercise and practice meditation.
