I am a licensed clinical social worker with an MSW from Simmons College School of Social Work, a certified yoga teacher, and a LifeForce Yoga Practitioner. I have been working for more than 15 years in the counseling field, including experience in outpatient therapy centers; public schools; a therapeutic boarding school for troubled adolescents, and an inpatient adolescent psychiatry unit. Most recently I worked as the Director of Counseling at a local rape crisis and domestic violence counseling and advocacy center. In these different settings I have witnessed the many ways that pain can manifest in a person’s life which inspired me to seek training in a variety of modalities. I have integrated the trainings into a flexible, agile approach I call Holistic Psychotherapy. With Holistic Psychotherapy, I bring a diverse set of tools to my clients, including mindfulness, cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, yoga therapy, progressive counting and dialectical behavior therapy. Together with my clients, and with these tools, we craft a path toward healing that addresses each person’s unique needs and goals.
