LEARN MORE ABOUT ME
I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker (LICSW) based in Boston, MA. My clinical background has focused on supporting children, adolescents, and adults experiencing anxiety, depression, grief, life transitions, relational challenges, and serious medical diagnoses.
I received my Bachelor’s degree in Human Development and Family Studies with a concentration in early childhood development from the University of Connecticut in 2017. I then completed my Master of Social Work degree with a specialization in health care at Simmons University in 2020. My clinical practicums were completed at Big Brothers Big Sisters of Eastern Massachusetts and Shriners Children’s Boston. After graduating, I worked for Massachusetts General Hospital in their Outpatient Psychiatry department for a year and a half before transitioning to an inpatient surgical service at Boston Children’s Hospital.
Therapy is not “one size fits all”; therefore, my approach is flexible, collaborative and client-centered. I often draw upon a mix of evidence-based practices, including cognitive behavioral therapy, solutions-focused therapy, and narrative therapy, to assist clients in navigating their life experiences. I am passionate about helping clients process overwhelming moments in their lives, ultimately finding clarity and a sense of peace. I have particular interest and expertise in providing counseling to those who are living with a complex medical diagnosis, or have a family member undergoing treatment/surgeries for a diagnosis.
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, listening to true crime podcasts, exercising, and cuddling with my dog, Frida.
