I am a warm, relationally-oriented psychotherapist with years of experience treating a wide variety of clients.
Clinical Social Worker in Auburn, MA
I was trained in psychodynamic psychotherapy at Smith College School for Social Work, which is a highly regarded institution for this particular type of therapy. Psychodynamic psychotherapy helps a person delve into their subconscious to explore sources of tension and discomfort, with the goal of increasing self-awareness and insight in order to alleviate discomfort.
I have specialized training, and years of experience in these evidence-based approaches to helping clients heal from past trauma: Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Attachment, Regulation, and Competency Child-Parent Psychotherapy
I have specialized training and years of experience providing affirming and informed psychotherapy to people seeking support with their gender identity and/or gender transition, including those who identify as transgender, and those who identify as non-binary, or gender expansive. I am familiar with the WPATH Standards of Care model as well as the Informed Consent model and use these interchangeably.
I have specialized training and years of experience treating post-traumatic stress disorder and complex trauma in children, teens, and adults. More specifically, I have completed trainings in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, ARC (Attachment, Regulation, and Competency), and Child-Parent Psychotherapy; each of these are types of therapy that have been researched and proven effective.
I have specialized training in working with young children, ages 0-6, using interventions such as Child-Parent Psychotherapy, and the Pyramid Model for Supporting Social Emotional Competence in Infants and Young Children.
