I'm a compassionate clinical social worker licensed in Connecticut with 20 years of experience. I have worked with teens, families, and adults who've had a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, stress, parenting problems, and substance misuse.
My counseling style is warm and interactive. I am strength based and treat all individuals with respect.
My approach combines cognitive-behavioral therapy, solution focused, evidence based, and person-centered counseling.
When I am not working, I enjoy being outdoors, hiking and just enjoying nature. I love all animals, and last year I rescued a cat.
Clinical approaches: Client-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Motivational Interviewing, Solution-Focused Therapy

Knowledgeable, patient, not pushy, and very flexible. Guides you and never dictates her perspective. Cannot imagine ever switching therapists. One of the most capable therapists I’ve ever worked with
