Biography
I began my clinical practice in 1990. A Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker, I have led more than 95 social anxiety therapy groups (20 weeks each) in Washington, DC, as well other cognitive-behavioral therapy groups for clinical depression, self-esteem, relationship problems, and LGBT concerns. My social anxiety therapy group was the focus of a National Public Radio story on CBT. I have worked with well over 1,000 persons with social anxiety and related problems in both individual and group CBT. I cofounded the National Social Anxiety Center (NSAC) in 2014, and have served as NSAC’s Co-Chair ever since. I received my Masters in Social Work from the University of Michigan in 1987. I am a founding member of the National Registry of Certified Group Psychotherapists. I have achieved the rigorous certification of Diplomate in cognitive-behavioral therapy by the Academy of Cognitive and Behavioral Therapies, which has also conferred on me the status of Fellow for having “made sustained outstanding contributions to the field of cognitive therapy.” I am also certified as a Diplomate in CBT by the National Association of Cognitive Behavioral Therapists. In addition, I am certified in Trial-Based Cognitive Therapy, helping people use role plays to change unhealthy attitudes. I am included as a “Top Therapist” in Washingtonian magazine’s listing in the category of cognitive-behavioral therapy. Prior to starting my private practice in 1990, I served as volunteer coordinator and mental health services director at Whitman Walker Clinic, DC’s largest LGBT and HIV services organization. I am an in-network provider with Medicare.
