LEARN MORE ABOUT ME

I am a master’s level clinician on track for my LMHC, practicing at Verge Therapy’s office in Lexington, MA. I offer a range of evidence-based practices, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), among others. I received my bachelor's degree in Child Development from California State University, Chico, and my master’s degree in mental health counseling from William James College. I completed a clinical practicum at Women’s Lunch Place, working with homeless women and families, followed by an internship placement at the Somerville Homeless Coalition working with homeless youth.

My experiences in mental health include working in the Department of Corrections with incarcerated men and women with severe substance use disorders and PTSD, among other comorbid disorders. I also have experience working internationally in high-school counseling centers in Spain, as well as working as a counselor in multiple social apartments and orphanages in Romania.

My approach is rooted in empathy, compassion, and understanding, and I believe that every person deserves to be seen, heard, and valued. My goal is to help individuals feel more confident, resilient, and self-aware, in order to navigate relationships and experiences in a more positive way and have a greater sense of control in their lives. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time trying different foods and restaurants with friends, hiking, and snowboarding, as well as traveling to different countries, and studying new languages and cultures.
