I received a Master's Degree in Social Work from New York University in 1995, and my training there was in direct clinical practice.  I am licensed to practice in the state of Virginia as a clinical social worker, which means that I completed two years of post-graduate supervised practice and then passed the Virginia state exam in order to obtain my LCSW license in 1997. 

This license authorizes me to practice independently, and autonomously, as a mental health professional.  As a part of maintaining my license I am required by the State of Virginia to complete 30 hours of continuing education 
every two years.  If you have any further questions about my training or qualifications, please contact me. You can also go to the Virginia Department of Health Professions website at http://www.dhp.virginia.gov/ for further information about my license.
