I have worked with children and families for over 20 years. My original role in the field-- and much missed-- was teaching Pre-K in Head Start programs. Since becoming a clinician, I first worked as an agency therapist with children and families involved with the Illinois Child Welfare System.
I teach an advanced clinical treatment course and a concentration year seminar in Erikson's MSW program.
I currently have an independent therapy practice where I work with children, adults, and families. I'm committed to the goal of making high-quality psychotherapy and case management services accessible to All. I am therefore honored to participate in the education of future social workers, from Erikson in particular. I have long observed Erikson graduates' unique sensitivity and commitment to children, families, and communities, and their own ongoing reflective practice.
