Credentials

I completed my graduate degree in Clinical Counseling at Johns Hopkins University where I graduated with Honors. My post graduate work included positions in the public and private sectors – I worked as a counselor at the Montgomery County CFW Counseling Center in Rockville, MD and as a school counselor for the Lyceé Rochambeau in Bethesda, MD. I am a Board Certified Clinical Counselor and a member of the American Counseling Association. I completed my undergraduate degree in Arts and Sciences at Washington University in St. Louis.

Publications

I have collaborated on the parenting book Adventures in Gentle Discipline by Hilary Flower, and have also written several articles for Mothering Magazine on positive discipline techniques.  I have regularly appeared in The Boca Raton Observer as a therapist/expert weighing in on various relationship issues.

I was interviewed for an article that appeared in the November/December 2011 issue of Bethesda Magazine, the Philanthropy Issue and I appeared in the March issue of Bethesda Magazine in an article on parenting a special needs child.  You can see that article here.

Most recently I have conducted parenting classes at Kidville, a children’s play center in Bethesda.  To see the article that I wrote for that class, you can click here.  I have also appeared in The Huffington Post in an article that was written based on a class that I conducted at Kidville in March, 2012.

Community and Group Work

Aside from my regular private practice I currently conduct parenting groups at the Washington Hebrew Bindeman Center in Potomac where I also served on the discussion panel in the screening of the movie “The Race To Nowhere.”  I also co-lead parenting and divorce support groups in my office in Bethesda, and at Kidville, a children’s play center.
