How can I help you?
Perhaps you're feeling down, anxious, trying to break free from the grips of drug or alcohol addiction, or have a family member struggling with addiction - maybe you're unsure about the future of a relationship, or just feel that you aren't living the life you were meant to lead. Whatever your needs may be, I am here to offer support. I have many years of experience helping people just like you.
Get to Know Me
Exceeding Expectations One Client at a Time
I graduated from Wheelock College (now part of Boston University) in 2006 with a Masters in Social Work (MSW), and immediately went to work in Lawrence, MA helping clients in underprivileged communities get the help they deserved. I worked with clients of all ages and wide varying diagnoses. I earned my Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker (LICSW) designation in 2009.
Beginning in 2010, I began working with clients addicted to drugs and/or alcohol and treated clients at two of the largest substance abuse centers in the state, helping me to gain a deep understanding of drug/alcohol addiction and how to treat it.
For the last several years I have worked for private counseling centers helping clients with addiction, depression, anxiety, adult ADHD, and PTSD, as well as parents of those with addiction issues.
In 2012, I had the pleasure of assisting with the creation of the DSM V (the diagnosing manual that sits in every counselor, doctor, psychiatrist, lawyer, and many other professionals' offices). I am cited in the book for my contributions.
Life can get difficult, and sometimes a little help from a professional Psychotherapist can make things better. I care about your well-being and provide you all the tools you need in order to seize the day and learn how to tackle even the most traumatic circumstances.
What To Expect At Your Visit
Guiding You On the Path of Self-Healing
Prior to the initial visit, I email you the necessary paperwork via a very secure client portal. This way during the initial visit we can begin therapy. We do not spend the first visit wasting time with paperwork and excessive questions. The process is simple and stress free.
Therapy is a process of growth and self-discovery, and in my sessions I promote behavioral transformation by encouraging a positive outlook and the adoption of new attitudes and reactions. I have the tools and professional experience to help you get back on track.
