I'm not just your typical Licensed Clinical Social Worker; I'm a dedicated advocate for positive change with a passion for making your journey to well-being engaging and rewarding. With a Master's degree in Social Work from Temple University and a Bachelor's degree from Kent State University, my career spans several decades, and I'm thrilled to bring my wealth of experience to our partnership.
My adventure in the world of social work started by guiding adult learners to achieve their GEDs, a role that showcased my unwavering commitment to personal growth and advancement. It was during these early years that I discovered the unique challenges faced by the individuals I worked with, igniting my passion for supporting survivors of complex trauma. This ignited my drive to specialize in this crucial area of therapy.
Since then, my focus has remained firmly on providing compassionate support to adults overcoming emotional and/or physical challenges, including those dealing with depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, and individuals who have survived complex and relational trauma. As the driving force behind my private practice, I've honed my skills and gained a deep understanding of therapeutic support. My approach centers around nurturing growth, resilience, and positive change for those I'm privileged to work with.
Before I delved into the world of therapy, I honed my skills as a charitable nonprofit executive and consultant. This unique background has enabled me to approach challenges with a systemic perspective, recognizing the interconnectedness of individuals and organizations. I am equipped to navigate the intricate journey of change, supporting you no matter where you are in your development, whether it's in the early stages, during growth, or as you focus on integrating and maintaining your growth in your life.
But my insights don't stop there. I also had the honor of serving as an adjunct professor at Temple University's School of Tourism and Hospitality, where I developed and delivered a Master-level course on nonprofit management. My commitment to imparting invaluable knowledge to the next generation of leaders showcases my dedication to making a lasting impact.
With a rock-solid educational foundation, hands-on experience in the nonprofit sector, and an impressive tenure in the field of therapy, I'm a multifaceted professional devoted to nurturing growth, resilience, and positive change in the lives of individuals, organizations, and communities I'm privileged to work with. My journey from nonprofit stewardship to transformative therapy exemplifies my unwavering commitment to helping you find peace of mind. Let's take this journey together!
