About Me

I utilize EMDR for individuals seeking to work through childhood trauma impacting their parenting, perinatal trauma (i.e. birth trauma, traumatic loss in the perinatal period), as well as with children who have experienced trauma.

Education & Experience

I completed my training in EMDR in January 2023, and am in the process of completing consultation hours towards certification. I have an MSW from Rutgers University and am currently in private practice in NJ, as well as licensed in PA, SC and FL, and am an adjunct professor for graduate social work students.
