About My Clients

I have focused my doctoral education and training on pediatric mental health, and strongly believe in the emotional growth of our next generation. I work with children and adolescents on their ability to express feelings and emotions, anxiety, depression, peer relationships, school difficulties, and behavioral concerns. I also work very closely with the caregivers of my client's as I believe in a systemic approach to care.

My Background and Approach

I am a licensed clinical psychologist based in Hartford County and have been providing clinical care primarily to children and adolescents for the past eight years. I have completed advanced training in trauma treatment, specifically Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT). I am a nationally certified TF-CBT provider. I earned a Doctorate of Psychology at the University of Hartford with a concentration in child and adolescent psychology. I trained at UConn Health Center Child Trauma Clinic, Yale Child Study Center Outpatient Clinic and Community Child Guidance Clinic School. I completed my doctoral internship at UMass Memorial Community Healthlink in Worcester, MA with a focus on community mental health therapy, assessment and trauma treatment. I completed a post-doctoral residency and continue employment at Community Health Center Inc. in Hartford, an integrated care setting focused on holistic patient care.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
