Education & Experience

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who has 30+ years of experience working with children, adolescents and families in the mental health system. Twenty-five of these years have been spent as a supervisor and administrator in various child serving systems including an academic medical center, a residential treatment facility, and an approved private school setting. Currently, I am self-employed in private practice where I provides individual, family and marital therapy for adolescent and adult clients who have experienced trauma as well as providing consultation and training for various non-profit organizations with a specialization in organizational culture and developing healthy systems of care. I have a Master’s Degree in Social Work from The University of Pittsburgh (1989) and I completed a second Master’s Degree of Science in Business (Non-Profit Management) from Robert Morris University (2007).
