Profile
“My professional background in community work and healthcare deeply influences how I practice with individuals.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
My professional background in community work and healthcare deeply influences how I practice with individuals. The social messages we receive influence how we function in our relationships and what we seek in terms of finding happiness.
What should someone know about working with you?
I work with a diverse client population. Many of my clients are neurodiverse and/or members of LQBTQ+ and BIPOC communities. I work with clients experiencing anxiety and those who have trauma histories or personality disorders. I also work with individuals transitioning into adulthood who are seeking support during major life changes.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
Education is something I value greatly! In addition to private practice, I work as an adjunct professor in the department of social work at Sacred Heart University. I teach “macro” practice courses, including social welfare policy, community assessment, social justice and diversity, and interprofessional collaboration. Since I am always teaching, I am always learning! A deep understanding of how our social positionality impacts our individual happiness and wellbeing directs what I seek out in terms of continuing education. I am always looking to gain more skill in practice models that consider the social messages we receive as diverse individuals within their theoretical framework.
