About Me & My Experience
With almost 30 years as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in a variety of settings, I bring warmth, experience and expertise into the therapeutic relationship. I received my Masters in Science in Social Work from Columbia University after completing my Bachelors in Psychology from Connecticut College. I've been in private practice since 2003. I worked in a private group practice in Middletown while I gained experience as a school social worker and school counselor at both the middle school and high school levels. I worked with the group practice West Meadow Counseling in Ellington, CT for over 6 years. Currently, I am in solo practice in South Windsor CT. I'm so excited to bring my specialized training in Childhood Emotional Neglect (CEN) to my clients' individualized healing process.
I believe healing happens within the context of the therapeutic relationship. This connection can help transform our beliefs about the past and ourselves. Issues may present themselves as symptoms or conflict, but soon we discover it is a healthy connection we all yearn for.
Working with adults and adolescents for many years, I've learned how crucial our early development affects who we are and how we interact with others. Through discussion and insightful interventions, the client learns what he or she needs and develops the tools themselves to meet those needs.

Fees and Insurance
I accept most insurance plans, including Medicare and Medicaid/HUSKY and many Employee Assistance Program (EAP) plans. Please call the number on the back of your insurance card that indicates "Behavioral Health" to see if I'm in your network. If you are without insurance, I can arrange a sliding-scale fee.
