Welcome and thank you for your interest! I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker in Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island with a Masters's degree in Social Work from Boston College. I have 20 years of experience helping clients work through personal challenges. I focus on developing and fostering a safe, non-judgmental space in which clients can more comfortably explore their struggles and barriers to self-fulfillment. My approach to therapy is integrative and draws on multiple modalities (e.g. cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused, trauma-informed, interpersonal, mindfulness-based), thus allowing me to tailor how I work with each client as an individual. I am passionate about treating survivors of all types of trauma and have advanced training in Prolonged Exposure Therapy. I help clients with depression and anxiety, grief and loss issues, and have over 15 years of hospital-based social work experience, helping clients work through end-of-life issues, sudden traumatic losses, pregnancy losses, infertility & difficult diagnoses. I am a former EMT and have previously worked with veterans and public servants. I look forward to meeting you and supporting you on your journey!
What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?
Clients can expect to take away new insights and perspectives into how thoughts and feelings influence behaviors, as well as concrete steps toward your goals.
What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?
I utilize a blend of Cognitive Behavioral modalities (including Prolonged Exposure Therapy for trauma survivors), Emotion-Focused Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Therapy, and Person-Centered Therapy.
Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.
Empathy, compassion, and listening to your concerns are my strongest skills. It is essential to really meet a client where they are at and to create a safe space without judgement.
