About My Clients

My areas of specialization and interest include: women's issues, depression, anxiety, stress management, and working with LGBTQIA-identified individuals and family members. I practice primarily from a relational- dynamic perspective, though I also incorporate techniques from cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and narrative approaches to address and tailor treatment to the unique and individual needs of each client.

My Background and Approach

I earned my doctoral degree from the Massachusetts School of Professional Psychology (William James College). I completed my internship at Worcester State Hospital/The University of Massachusetts Medical School and Connecticut College, and a post-doctoral fellowship at a private psychology practice in the greater Boston area. My dissertation research explored and offered recommendations surrounding miscommunications within the therapeutic relationship between heterosexual psychologists and lesbian-identified clients.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

In addition to my psychotherapy practice work, I dedicate much of my free time to social justice and advocacy work. I am a Board Member of the Rhode Island Psychological Association (RIPA). I also Chair the Sexual Orientation and Gender Diversity Committee of the RIPA. Previously, I served as a committee member on the American Psychological Association's Policy and Advocacy Committee via Division 44, The Society for the Psychological Study of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender issues. Lastly, from 2012-2016, I served as the Co-Chair of the Massachusetts Disaster Response Network which allowed me the opportunity to work with local and state emergency teams, the American Red Cross, and the Boston Athletic Association to help relief workers and survivors of natural disasters and other such traumatic events.
