About Me


My experience with and dedication to treating ADHD isn’t just professional; it’s personal: I have ADHD.

About Me

I am a licensed clinical social worker in both Massachusetts and Florida. I graduated from Rutgers University with a Bachelors of Science in Psychology in 1997 and earned a Masters in Social Work with a focus in clinical social work from Columbia University. I have over 19 years of clinical experience and also had the good fortune to collaborate with many experts who share the same area of specialty, including Dr. Edward Hallowell, a pioneer in the education and treatment of ADD/ADHD and Dr. Ross Greene, author of The Explosive Child and creator of CPS, Collaborate Problem Solving Approach.

Practice Philosophy

My Approach to Therapy

Since I was untreated until I attended graduate school, I am better able to understand the effect of symptoms from a variety of perspectives and apply that knowledge to the treatment of my clients. My clients feel that because I live it, have struggled with it, understand the thoughts and emotions associated with it, and continue to find new strategies to manage and cope with it, it gives me an advantage in their treatment. In addition, I have an ability to connect and develop an alliance with teens, especially those who are defiant, disrespectful, who feel entitled or are resistant to counseling or coaching. Working with these challenging clients and the families affected by them, is my true passion. My clients have described me as an effective, progressive, hard working, caring, passionate, young at heart, empathetic, accommodating, “think outside the box” kind of therapist.
