Kaiser Permanente medical center practitioner
My gender: Female
Yes, I’m accepting new patients. Referral may be required.
I am originally from Connecticut and received my master's degree in social work from the University of Connecticut in 1988. I believe becoming a social worker and therapist is a natural extension of the enjoyment I receive from working with people. I have always been interested in helping others become the best they can be, and I am rewarded and challenged by working with people from a variety of backgrounds with a variety of interests. Even though I have lived in the South for almost 20 years, I still love New England and make sure I go there every year.
I have worked at Kaiser Permanente for over 14 years and my practice includes working in our intensive outpatient program (IOP). The IOP serves adult men and women in crisis and helps develop improved coping strategies and skills to enhance the quality of their lives. I also see members on an individual basis to work on developing insight, improving self-esteem, addressing relationship issues and grief and loss.
I have a strong creative streak and knitting is the way I nurture that. I find it fun and challenging to learn new things all the time. I also love going to movies and plays with my circle of close friends and reading. My dog, Riley, makes sure I get exercise every day, and we go on some excellent walks.
