About My Clients

I have a passion for working with adults who are healing from trauma; suicide loss survivors; artists and creatives; and members of the LGBTQIA+ community.

My Background and Approach

I am dedicated to providing affirmative care and have a passion for working with those healing from trauma. In my work, informed by somatic therapy and the nervous system, I strive to honor the ways in which our emotions and actions work to keep us safe; while also exploring how they may be disconnecting us from who and what we care about. My sessions are often experiential, with an emphasis on present moment awareness and skill-building; I also offer EMDR. I have a deep respect for those who show up and do the work of therapy and prioritize curiosity, collaboration, and social justice work, all without shying away from humor and celebrating joy. I earned my Master's in Social Work from Simmons University in 2021, after training in the Dual-Diagnosis Partial Hospital Program at Faulkner Hospital and the Counseling and Wellness Center at MassArt. Prior to social work, I trained as a fine artist, earning my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, and worked as a professional photographer.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

For folx who have been harmed by systems and individuals perpetuating racism, sexism, homophobia, and transphobia, I encourage the exploration of internalized oppression in our work. In processing these lived experiences together, I also recognize the privileged identities I hold, and advocate for community connection as well. Additionally, I am dedicated to supporting suicide loss survivors in my therapy practice and through my volunteer work on the Grief Support Services team at Samaritans.
