I began my career in the field of mental health after obtaining my Masters degree in Social Work From Hunter College in 2002. My passion for helping special-needs children and their families led me to work in both public and private school settings, various mental health organizations and eventually to begin my own private psychotherapy practice. I devoted my work to treating children, teens and young adults with a wide array of mental health conditions such as ADHD, Aspergers, Anxiety & Mood Disorders and High Functioning Autism.
In pursuit of more integrative and holistic treatments for my clients I became a Registered Yoga and Meditation Teacher through OM Yoga in 2009. I began weaving my knowledge of the mindful arts into my work offering mindfulness-based social skills groups to children and teens and mindfulness-based stress reduction groups to young adults.
Most recently I became a Certified Parent and Educator Coach for Tournesol Kids, a non-profit organization that strives to bring embodied literacy into schools and local communities by teaching holistic development strategies to children, parents and educators.
Today, I continue my work as the The Special Needs Coach. My mission is to support, educate and empower special-needs children, their families and their communities.
