Are you ready to set sail for your new destination whether it be finding happiness, strength, or life purpose? Welcome! I have always been so proud, amazed and honored to witness such client resilience, throughout my more than 20 year career, in the human service field. After obtaining a Bachelor’s of Arts degree in Psychology in 1996, I began my career by providing parent education and support in the many areas of being a parent, that include, but are not limited to the questions and challenges relating to child development, discipline, and communication. I continue such passion into today, even after deciding to expand my knowledge and practice approach to also provide counseling services, after graduating from RI College in 2009, with a Masters of Social Work degree. Over the last 10 years, I have been providing counseling services for individual children and adults, as well as in family format. I believe no single or same approach fits every person, and utilize a variety of interventions from strength based, client centered, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), trauma focused, insight oriented, solution focused therapy, as well as coping skill and self esteem development. Populations served have included 5 to 70 years old, and such clients have often presented due to symptoms of depression, anxiety, behavioral challenges, life transitions and challenges, as well as other related stressors.
