I strive to use my talents and musical abilities to make a difference in lives of the people I serve. Fueled by this ambition, I formed a private practice called Harmony Music Therapy Services in 2002. My work focused on developing music therapy programs throughout my community and providing music therapy services. To date, I established new programs in settings such as hospitals, pediatric rehabilitation centers, senior homes, homeless shelters, clinics and schools. Also, I am an advocate for the advancement of quality programming for people who have disabilities. I find that I am able to influence this type of change through my clinical work, research, advocacy and training programs. It brings me great joy to serve my community in this way.

My professional career as a social worker began 20 years ago when I pursued a Master of Social Work (MSW) degree from Boston College Graduate School of Social Work.  During my final year, I interned at the Massachusetts Developmental Disabilities Council where I began my life-long role of advocating for persons with various intellectual and physical disabilities. I am a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) in Pennsylvania and former licensed social worker in New Jersey. I spent some of my first years after graduation serving as a Behavior Specialist with Wyomissing Behavior Analysts, Ltd.  This opportunity to teach parenting skills set the stage for my passion for working with families.   Recently, I obtained my Behavior Specialist license in Pennsylvania. 15 years ago, I began consulting with The Arc Gloucester in Gloucester, New Jersey providing individual social education/counseling to adults with physical and intellectual disabilities and later had families members diagnosed with Autism.  I have over 150 continuing education credits in Autism and related topics and am currently pursuing a Graduate Certificate in Autism Spectrum Disorders at Drexel University. In 2008, I received a Certificate in Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy from Bryn Mawr School of Social Work and Social Research and a certificate in Sexuality Education for persons with Asperger Syndrome from the Penn Autism Network continuing education division. I earned Certificate in Advanced Child Development from the Family Play Therapy Center in June 2012.  I have presented at many local, state and national disability and Autism conferences. I have a passion for working with families, and particularly with those who find it difficult to create or access the supports they need for individual and family success.  I have experience working with all ages, from toddler to adult.  I provide Mindfulness Based Play-Family Therapy, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Behavior Plans and Therapy and Life Coaching.
