As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), I have practiced psychotherapy for 30 years.
I completed the MSW degree and graduate internships at Syracuse University in 1990.
Post-graduate training included 7 years of supervised clinical experience in a Sexual Assault Treatment Center and in an Outpatient Counseling setting. I have maintained a robust
private practice in Charlottesville, VA since 1996. Additionally, I teach Mindful Eating classes
in the Mindfulness Center at the University of Virginia School of Medicine.
Areas of expertise: Depression, Anxiety, Eating Disorders, Trauma, Grief/Loss,
Life Changes/Transitions (e.g. parenthood, relocation, marriage, divorce) and College/Graduate Student concerns. I am trained in EMDR and have extensive training
and experience in the treatment of disordered eating.
I am an experienced practitioner of Mindfulness Meditation and currently serve on the
Board of Directors of the Insight Meditation Community of Charlottesville (IMCC).
Mindfulness is foundational in my work with clients.
