3 years of experience

Hello! I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker who graduated from Boston College in 2020, bringing a fresh and contemporary perspective to my practice. My professional journey has included valuable experience working in high-pressure emergency departments, inpatient psychiatry units, and behavior modification programs. This diverse background equips me with a deep understanding of crisis management, clinical assessment, and effective behavior intervention strategies. I am passionate about helping individuals navigate life's challenges and foster personal growth. My approach is compassionate, non-judgmental, and tailored to meet your unique needs.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

The introduction meeting for therapy is our initial, confidential session where we get to know each other. You'll have the opportunity to share your concerns, and I'll explain my approach to therapy. This session is all about building trust and ensuring you're comfortable with me as your therapist. It's a safe, no-pressure space to discuss your goals and see if we're a good fit for working together.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

I'm an empathetic, non-judgmental therapist with strong listening and problem-solving skills. I adapt to your unique needs, maintain professional boundaries, and continually strive for personal growth. My compassionate and collaborative approach is dedicated to helping you navigate challenges and find emotional well-being.
