I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker focused on helping adolescents, adults, couples, and families through life’s challenges. While I use an eclectic approach that includes a variety of therapeutic interventions, I believe that the greatest vehicles for changes are the relationship between client and therapist and helping clients recognize and utilize their own inner strengths. Prior to joining IBH, I spent three and a half years working with children and adolescents – and their families – through acute crisis situations at Children’s Hospital’s Behavioral Health Center. I also have experience as a school social worker, having spent two years providing in-school therapeutic services to the special education population at Belle Chasse Academy, a charter school on the joint military base on the West Bank. I earned my Masters in Social Work from Tulane University in 2014 and my Bachelor of Arts in communications from American University in Washington, D.C., in 2003. Prior to becoming a therapist, I spent nine years working in corporate communications and public relations in New York City.
