About My Clients

In my practice I focus on treating mostly adults; however I will occasionally work with people 12 and older who are in the LGBTQ community or questioning their gender or sexuality. My clients are looking to balance getting to know themselves better and healing from the past with learning practical skills to make the present moment easier to navigate.

My Background and Approach

I have an MSW through Simmons University. I spent my time working in mental health outreach, working with people with dual diagnosis (addiction and mental health at the same time) as well as in patient drug and alcohol treatment and in patient mental health treatment. I have seen treatment at many different levels of care and take collaboration with people on what they need for their treatment very seriously. My two main modalities in therapy are Internal Family Systems (IFS) and Meditation/MIndfulness/Compassion practices.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe in person-centered care as well as preserving a person’s ability to choose their own care as a high priority. There are times as therapists where we have to protect a client from harming themselves or others, but for me this is a last resort. In IFS all Parts of ourselves are welcome; we might seek to get some relief from extreme symptoms and we learn to get to know ourselves and let go of the burdens that lead to trouble in the present moment. I believe in walking with people in their journeys to get to know themselves better; I do not pretend to be an expert in your life. My personal interests in mental health are learning how to help people with traumatized and symptomatic systems learn how to benefit from meditation. I also continue to work part time in in patient psych.
