I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker in Connecticut (LCSW) & Massachusetts (LICSW). I am certified in Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART).
I specialize in individual therapy for trauma, anxiety and depression. Besides those areas, I have clinical experience with a diverse and wide range of diagnoses, most prominently with sleep disorders, bipolar and psychotic-related disorders, substance-use disorders and personality disorders.
My work has often involved addressing the impact of systemic oppression including (but not limited to) racism, ableism, homophobia and transphobia and on unlearning beliefs associated with these. I am a Health at Every Size provider, I do not subscribe societal expectations of what our bodies should look like, and believe that we should be the only ones to determine what our bodies need. I support folks navigating LGBTQ+ identities.
