My approach to treatment is to create change and promote health and healing through empowerment. I utilize trauma informed methods to support patient centered goals, your task development and your chosen pace of our work. Encouragement, positive reinforcement and humor are part of each session. I will collaborate with you to help you learn and utilize skills in managing the challenges you face. Our focus will be allowing you to improve and maintain the quality of your life in all areas. I will honor your willingness to share and allow me to join you in your journey towards healing, understanding that each step forward is great progress.
Licensed Professional Counselor
I received my graduate training for Clinical Psychology at Boston University as well as graduate training in Leadership from Georgetown University. I have over 20 years experience in mental health providing individual and group therapies with adults in several settings. Patient treatments have included mood disorders, anxiety disorders, severe and persistent mental health disorders, trauma, substance use, & grief and loss. My theoretical approach is both cognitive-behavioral and psychodynamic. I utilize various interventions from those perspectives. Additionally, I have trained many licensed clinicians and led several clinical programs.
