I earned my Master’s in Social Work from Simmons College. Since then, I have been working with children, adolescents, and adults who are living with chronic illness and/or disabilities. As a medical social worker, I provide counseling and emotional support to these patients, their parents, their siblings, and other loved ones as they cope with the ongoing challenges of living a happy and fulfilling life in the context of their medical struggles.

It can be daunting to reach out for help when you are feeling most overwhelmed, but the rewards can be heartening and bring significant comfort. Everyone deserves a safe, non-judgemental place in which to learn more about themselves and to explore the obstacles preventing them from living the life they desire. I believe you have strengths, and I would be honored to help you uncover and utilize them as we work together. Whether you are looking to improve relationships, find more balance in your life, decrease anxiety, or address other concerns in your life, therapy is a place to laugh, cry, vent, and gain skills to move forward.
