After graduating with Psychology and Spanish degrees from Drew University, I completed my Masters in Social Work at New York University. I have lived in Charlottesville since 2002 and worked in community mental health for several years.
At Strength & Ease, I utilize an eclectic set of modalities tailored to each person or couple, focused on building inner resilience, reducing anxiety and depression, and improving relationships.
I am trained in attachment work, Emotionally Focused Therapy for relationships, Trauma-Informed Care and mindfulness, as well as EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), and the connection between messages we received from our world as children and how they inform our adult lives.
I am also certified in Perinatal Mental Health through Postpartum Support International and am required to maintain my certification through regular conferences.
