I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Rhode Island with over 16 years of experience working as a Social Worker and life coach. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, PTSD, substance use disorders, career challenges, OCD, and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse. My therapy style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and rational-emotive therapy. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you. I look forward to working with you!
