As an LCSW Child & Family Therapist and Parent Coach, my role is to help children and families develop the skills and insights necessary to live happy, meaningful lives. I received my MSW from Smith College in 1998 and my BA in Psychology from the University of California, Santa Barbara in 1993. I have worked directly with children and families in a variety of clinical contexts and have provided therapy and psycho-education to hundreds of clients over the years. In addition to my professional experience, I have the personal experience of being the mother to three children. Whether working face to face in a clinical context, or remotely as a Coach, I draw from my clinical experience, therapeutic models and the latest research to support kids and families achieve their goals.
