Profile
“I have always been a listener in my family and friend groups, as I enjoy engaging with people on a deep and personal level.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I have wanted to be a therapist since my first intro to social work class during the first semester of my college career. I have always been a listener in my family and friend groups, as I enjoy engaging with people on a deep and personal level. I have experience working in Massachusetts, Connecticut, and New York in a variety of settings, such as residential, supportive services through the state, foster care services, a community mental health clinic, schools, and private practices. Throughout the years, I have worked with children, adolescents, and caregivers from diverse backgrounds. I also have experience with neurological and intellectual disabilities.
What should someone know about working with you?
I strive to create a safe and nurturing environment that helps you feel supported in your effort to grow and connect with your strengths. I provide therapy for adolescents (16+) and adults who have experienced traumatic incidents, have symptoms of anxiety and depression, have symptoms of anxiety and depression related to the birth or impending birth of a child, need support to increase their self-esteem, have relationship challenges, or want to increase social skills. In the integrative approach I use, I will encourage weekly goal-setting and tasks to help you achieve your goals.
How do your core values shape your approach to therapy?
One of my core values is service: I have been involved in an international service organization since I was 14. I believe the greatest gifts we can give are our time and energy. This shapes my approach to therapy and I have decades of experience collaborating with individuals of different backgrounds.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
I know that access to services in some areas is limited. Therefore, I am offering consistent online sessions through a secure video platform to meet your needs and the needs of your busy schedule.
