LEARN MORE ABOUT ME
I am a clinician with a Master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. My therapeutic approach is multidimensional in that I utilize a variety of theories within my therapeutic work including evidence-based theories such as CBT and DBT in addition to holistic, relational, and person-centered approaches. In order to individualize treatment to fit the unique needs of each client, I view case conceptualizations from a biopsychosocial lens, incorporating all aspects of a client’s life to better understand their current symptoms and behaviors to provide the most effective treatment.
I received my bachelor’s degree in Psychological Science with a minor in Human Development and Family Studies from The University of Vermont and my Master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling with a concentration in Health and Behavioral Medicine from William James College in Newton, MA. I completed a clinical practicum at Seasons Hospice & Palliative Care where I met with patients and provided them with emotional support during the end-of-life process and supported family members and loved ones through anticipatory grief and bereavement.
For my clinical internship at the Multi-Service Eating Disorder Association, I provided a number of different services including individual therapy, group therapy, skills sessions, and parent coaching sessions for those struggling with eating disorders. Most recently, I served as a Clinical Assessor at The Renfrew Center for Eating Disorders where I conducted extensive biopsychosocial intakes to provide patients and family members with appropriate level of care recommendations. Through this experience, I utilized motivational interviewing and provided family support as prospective patients and parents decided to enter a higher level of care.
I have a wide variety of experience providing comprehensive services to a diverse set of clients. Most of my work has been with adolescents, college students, young adults, and geriatric populations who present with anxiety, depression, suicidal ideation, self-injurious behaviors, trauma, eating disorders, body image concerns, grief, life transitions, and relationship concerns. My collaborative approach to treatment allows for the development of strong therapeutic and compassionate relationships with each of my clients to help them live authentically in their lives.
When I am not working, I enjoy spending quality time with my family and friends, and being outside in nature, either at the beach or in the mountains. I love the ocean and obtained my scuba certification several years ago and try to go diving whenever possible.
