I believe that a strong therapeutic relationship is essential to making progress in therapy. I strive to create a supportive and non-judgmental therapeutic space, where clients are able to be their true, authentic selves. I am an active therapist and I work collaboratively with clients to make therapy goals, learn and practice new coping skills, and solve problems.
I am a white, cisgender female. I have extensive experience working with People of Color, first- and second-generation immigrants and LGBTQIA+ folks. I am committed to integrating social, racial, and economic justice in all aspects of my work. I am fluent in English and have conversational skills in Spanish.
I started my career working with teen parents and have maintained a commitment to supporting caregivers of young children. I am particularly passionate about working with pregnant and postpartum caregivers and caregivers of children with developmental challenges. I enjoy working with individuals who are experiencing life transitions, relationship stress, and parenting challenges in addition to supporting clients as they cope with traumatic events.
I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Smith College, a Master’s Degree in Social Work from Salem State University, and a Certificate in Infant Parent Mental Health from University of Massachusetts. I am trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Motivational Interviewing and I use these techniques along with other effective therapeutic strategies to create positive and lasting changes in mental health symptoms.
In addition to my role as a mental health clinician, I am also an Early Intervention Clinician, an Adoption Social Worker, and a support group facilitator.
