Licensed Clinical Social Worker
I received my Master’s degree in Clinical Social Work from Bryn Mawr College in 1999. I worked for the Renfrew Center from 1999-2001 and for the Belmont Center from 2001-2007 in the field of Eating Disorders. I also maintained a private practice during that time. In January 2008, I co-founded Bloomgarden, Ostroff & Associates, a group psychotherapy practice in Center City, Philadelphia. There I serve as the Administrative Director, overseeing general operations and developing systems that keep things running smoothly.
I use a variety of approaches in my work including cognitive/cognitive-behavioral, insight-oriented, psychoeducational, mindfulness, and relational psychotherapy. I have particular expertise in the areas of EMDR, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples (EFT) and often use these treatment approaches in my work.
