I am a clinical social worker practicing in the New England area for over twenty five years. I have worked with individuals primarily with acute mental illness and trauma. In addition, I have a significant amount of experience working with families and individuals who have experienced cognitive impairment, physical disabilities and medical problems. Dealing with issues of grief and loss, often accompanying mental and physical problems, has made me very sensitive to other’s needs.
I have always had a passion for caring and helping others and now bring years of experience to my work. I hope to continue to to work with people, as they face life’s challenges and transitions, coping with the anxiety and depression, that often accompanies change.
My therapeutic model is strengths based, often using Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT). In addition, I utilize Person-Centered Therapy ((PCT) coupled with mindfulness techniques. Recognizing the unique individual differences, the therapeutic process will be determined collaboratively and what approach is best suited for the individual.
My sincere, empathetic and engaging personality has worked well for me in relationship building and facilitating the process of growth and wellness. I am goal oriented and encourage clients to set their individual objectives and together we work towards achieving them.
I am eager to be part of your life’s journey and together we will achieve fulfillment and joy that you are striving for.
Additional areas of focus: Relationship issues, Self esteem, Career difficulties, Bipolar disorder, Coping with life changes, Coaching, Compassion fatigue
Clinical approaches: Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Client-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Narrative Therapy, Trauma-Focused Therapy
