Director & Clinical Supervisor
I've been providing outpatient therapy to individuals for 18 years. I started my social work career in community mental health in Brooklyn, NY, and have spent the last 13 years working in Pittsburgh in private practice. I have also been an adjunct faculty instructor in the MSW program at Pitt's School of Social Work since 2012. During my career as a therapist, I've enjoyed working with a wide range of clients with numerous and varied life problems and psychiatric concerns. I have experience using (and teaching) many different models of treatment, but am always person-centered and dedicated to consistent and ethical client care.
I have loved all facets of my work as a clinical social worker and I am eager to turn my experience toward my new venture, Alliance Therapy Center. In addition to fostering a vibrant and engaging group practice, I am excited to help other professionals become the clinicians they've always wanted to be. To do this, Alliance provides a variety of services to clinicians:
Primary Areas of Clinical Experience

LGBTQIA+, sex positive, polyamory
Adults with eating disorders
