ABOUT

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.

I am overwhelmed with guilt as I can’t be with my parents on a daily basis to help them navigate this challenging time in their lives. At the same time, I also feel guilty that I can’t help my kids while they struggle in raising their children and I can’t be there to help babysit or just spend time with them. I miss my grandchildren and virtual visits just aren’t doing it for me or them anymore.”


Dying at a Distance: Grief During Covid

Apr 22, 2020

Humans are incredibly resilient. I am constantly in awe of the people that I speak to, in my role as a bereavement therapist, who are creating amended rituals to help them cope with their painful losses. There is no correct answer to our predicament. It feels unfair to be deprived of the comfort of our traditions that help guide and heal mourners. However, we can try to creatively engage in meaningful adaptations of our rituals during this crisis to help us process our grief.


Caregiving in the Time of Quarantine

Apr 05, 2020

How can we as caregivers of elderly relatives, whether they are local or across the world, navigate the realities of this pandemic? How do we adjust to this “new normal” in our lives with responsibilities as adult children to our elderly loved ones? How can we cope with the inevitable guilt that arises from not being able to fully meet our family’s needs during this time of crisis?

Grief for the Loss of our Parents

Jan 21, 2019

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.


Caring for the Caregiver

Oct 03, 2018

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.
