Children, Families &
As a psychotherapist with more than two decades experience working with children and adults, I have gained a diverse clinical background. It includes work in schools (Pre-K through high school); community mental health clinics; substance abuse and geriatric services. Organizations I have worked or consulted with include Albert Einstein Medical College, the Post Graduate Center for Mental Health, and the NYC Department of Education.
My passion for doing creative work with children led to my founding the Flatbush Youth Initiative, a performance-based arts and education program. At FYI we were recognized for developing an innovative model for social and emotional learning. Out of these experiences evolved “A Patch of Sunlight for Every Child”, an approach to working with children that creates the space and vision to discover each child’s unique talents. As the mother of two (almost) grown children, I know the rigors and reward of discovering talents while parenting in challenging times.
