Professional Experience

Background

Prior to opening my private practice, I worked full-time in a community mental health organization in Massachusetts.  I provided individual and family counseling as well as crisis management services with men, women, and children of all ages through Outreach services.

 

I have enjoyed working with a variety of people who struggle with many different issues and come from a diverse collection of socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds.

  • Women of all ages looking to develop their internal sense of power and healthy self-esteem

  • Clients looking to connect with/explore their spirituality and their personal "Meaning of Life"

  • Families having challenges with their Adult-Children (Communication issues/ estrangement/dependency/self-medicating, etc.)

Clinical Experiences

Among other things, I have been on the front lines of the opioid epidemic.  I have worked with many clients who struggled with addiction and co-occurring mental health diagnoses. Thanks to this unique opportunity, I gained a wealth of knowledge and professional experience in working with the following:

  • Anxiety

  • Addictions

  • ADHD

  • Crisis management

  • Multicultural Issues

  • Relationship issues/ couples counseling

  • Healthy communication skills
