Work History

If you are living with or beyond illness and loss or caring for someone who is, either as a family member/friend or professional, seeking out therapy is one way to take care of yourself as you navigate the challenges that come with these experiences.I believe that even in the most difficult times of life, people have an amazing capacity to grow, learn, connect, love, and find meaning and purpose. This can be balanced with the more uncomfortable feelings that come along with illness, survivorship, loss, and caregiving. I offer a non-judgemental and empathic therapeutic space where we will work together to find this balance. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in New York and New Jersey. I have worked in the field of psycho-oncology for over 15 years and have extensive clinical understanding of the needs of patients and caregivers throughout the disease continuum, from initial diagnosis, through treatment, end of life, survivorship, recurrence, chronic illness, & bereavement. I completed advanced training programs in cognitive-behavioral therapy, psychodynamic psychotherapy, group psychotherapy, complicated grief therapy, and meaning-centered psychotherapy. I have published academic papers and presented on topics such as coping with chronic cancer, survivor guilt, fear of recurrence, dating after treatment, grief and loss. In addition to my therapy practice, I also teach in the MSW (Masters in Social Work) programs at Fordham University and New York University (Palliative Care & Grief, Loss & Bereavement courses).
