About Mel

As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Delaware, I have over seventeen years experience in working directly with individuals who struggle with eating disorders. I began my career at The Renfrew Center where I worked for ten years in the inpatient treatment facility, as well as the partial program and intensive outpatient. In addition to my work with eating disorders, I have worked in a variety of different settings including schools, community mental health, and an adolescent treatment facility.

My undergraduate degree is in Human Development and Family Studies from The Pennsylvania State University. I obtained my graduate education in Social Work at Widener University. I am also a member of the National Association of Social Workers. 

I offer outpatient counseling services to individuals 18 years old and above in Sussex County and the surrounding areas. I work with individuals, both male and female, as well as family members who are affected by eating disorders. My mission is to help you develop positive self-esteem and live a life that you find rewarding. In a non judgmental atmosphere, I use a combination of cognitive behavioral therapy and mindfulness, as well as a client-centered approach to assist my clients in managing stress, developing coping skills, and helping to utilize individual strengths.
