Work Experience: I have practicing clinical social work for over 30 years. In my work with children and their parents, I use a variety of creative, fun-filled modalities to help work through life's challenges. Concurrent with my work with children, teens, and families in my private practice,, I also have worked in a variety of medical and health-related settings. I specialize in trauma, loss, divorce, chronic illness (particularly children who have lung diseases, such as cystic fibrosis), and attachment disorders.
