I am a licensed psychotherapist who has been working with people who experience all types of suffering and loss for over 20 years. After completing my BA in Psychology from Marquette University in Milwaukee, I pursued my MA in Counseling and Spiritual Care from Fordham University in NYC (Magna Cum Laude, Jesuit Honor Society). Since then, I completed Complicated Grief Training with The Center for Complicated Grief at Columbia University, NYC.
I have worked on psychiatric units in New York City hospitals, the Samaritans in their suicide prevention services, in End of Life care at Cabrini Hospice, in eldercare at The New Jewish Nursing home and in serving the needs of patients on life support at the Henry J. Carter Specialty Hospital.
Lately, I have been working on a trauma team that heads out of town to mass violence incidents. I was out in El Paso, Texas after the shooting in August 2019.
I also work with individuals who have been affected by all types of trauma which include sudden and unexpected deaths. This includes suicides, murders, accidental deaths, murder/suicides and cardiac arrests.
My desire is to be there for people who are going through emotionally and psychologically hard times so that they can get a better understanding of their problems and make changes that will make it easier for them to move forward in their lives.
