I am a licensed social worker committed to building a solid relationship and creating a safe space for anyone, of any age, to share and explore through talk, play, mediation and/or artistic expression. I work with individuals (adults and children), couples, and families and come from a strengths-based and solution focused approach. I incorporate various methods of talk and play therapy, CBT and TFCBT, mindfulness, spiritual guidance, and narrative therapies.

I earned my MSW from Simmons College in Boston in 2002. I am an LICSW therapist who has over 15 years of experience in the social work field working with individuals of all ages, families, communities and students. I have had the opportunity to have some diverse working experiences; living overseas to aid in anti-trafficking efforts for those sexually exploited, adoption from foster care recruitment, outreach to girls in lock up, traditional outpatient therapy, and home based clinical case management for low income and high risk youth/families. I have also volunteered as a Mentor for the past 13 years as well as volunteered domestically and internationally for faith based initiatives.
