About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who works with adolescents, adults, couples, and families. My area of expertise is grief and bereavement work. Grief results from many different kinds of losses. Whether you are struggling with the death of loved one, the ending of a long-term relationship, the loss of a job, or even an identity crisis stemming from a major life change, such as marriage, birth of a child, retirement, or medical diagnosis, you may be experiencing a variety of emotions typical with grief. Working through these emotions is essential in order to heal.

In addition to doing clinical therapy work, I am a certified yoga teacher and believe heavily in the mind-body connection. I use many tools from my yoga and meditation practice when working with clients. These tools help ease anxiety and depression, promote self-awareness, and foster long-term growth.

In addition to a Masters of Social Work from Virginia Commonwealth University, I have an undergraduate degree in Engineering from the University of Virginia and a Masters in Business Administration from the Wharton School at University of Pennsylvania. Prior to transitioning to the mental health field, I worked in systems consulting and corporate finance for the banking, telecommunications, and hospitality industries.
