I am a licensed clinical social worker with over 30 years experience in working with adults ages 20 to 100. I provide individual, couples, family and group psychotherapy to assist people through the challenges of life. I am also an EMDR-trained therapist (eye movement desensitization, reprocessing) and work with people who have had traumatic histories (i.e., abuse, bullying, acts of terrorism, life-threatening illness, rape, abandonment, betrayal).
I also work with seniors and their families dealing with illness, loss, bereavement, caregiving and familial issues. Additionally, I assist people with phobias through cognitive and behavioral therapy and in-vivo desensitization techniques.

Facing Our Fears
Those of us granted life have to face the loss of the most profound of all our relationships. The relationship a person has with a parent, affects every stage of our life. Therefore, losing a parent at each stage in life has unique challenges.
As a clinical social worker and therapist for over 30 years and having myself been a caregiver for over 10 years, I have observed that caregiver stress is the single most underreported source of stress for people ranging from 45 until their 80’s. While caregiving can also be a source of blessing and provide the feeling that you are doing the “right thing” for your elderly loved ones, it is tinged with a multitude of other emotions. To your friends and family, you may not want to openly express these emotions and feelings. A trained therapist, an expert in these matters, is needed.
