About Rebecca

I am a clinical social worker licensed in the state of New York. I graduated from Brown University with a bachelor’s degree in Sociology and, after two years in the teaching service corps Teach for America, I went on to graduate school at Stony Brook University’s School of Social Welfare. There, I completed my Master’s in Social Work (MSW) in 2003 and PhD in Social Welfare in 2008. In 2017, I completed a Post-Master’s Certificate in Child and Family Therapy at NYU.

I specialize in helping young children improve functioning and well-being through play therapy. Working with parents and other family members is often a key part of supporting healthy growth and development.
