LCSW with over a decade of experience working with clients of all ages. Look forward to collaborating with you!
Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Fairfield, CT
I have worked with clients suffering with PTSD since 2012 and was trained in TF-CBT. I also have extensive experience working with clients suffering with grief following incidents of mass trauma. I have also worked with clients who have experienced spiritual abuse and religious trauma.
I have been working with grieving children, teens, adults and families since 1996 - first as a trained volunteer facilitator and since 2012, as a licensed social worker. In 2013, I worked with family members whose loved ones were killed in the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. Since 2012, I have also provided grief support to those whose loved ones died due to terminal illness such as cancer and to those dealing with anticipatory grief.
In addition to my background in grief and loss, I have also worked with clients of all ages struggling with anxiety, depression, family and relationship difficulties, academic and career stressors. I enjoy working with clients to develop skills though CBT and DBT techniques in particular to more effectively manage symptoms.
My therapeutic approach is eclectic and results-oriented and incorporates elements of psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness, and dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT). I also value the role of the arts and creative expression in processing grief.
