As a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker with a degree from Smith College School for Social Work, I specialize in working with adolescents and adults, providing individual therapy and family consultation in an outpatient private practice in Massachusetts. With a Certificate in Traumatic Stress Studies, I offer holistic health and wellness targeted therapy that aims to heal the whole person, instead of simply targeting their symptoms. My therapeutic style encompasses a broad range of techniques but focuses on psychodynamic and relational approaches to treatment, with the intent of promoting overall holistic health and well-being.
Trauma often manifests physically as well as emotionally, so I find it most helpful for my clients to tie in mind-body techniques, while engaging their sensory systems, when working towards a place of coping and healing. This can sometimes include exploring essential oils and natural supplements, yoga, meditation, stretching, aromatherapy, and grounding techniques, as well as other body-based interventions. In my work, I have found that developing an individualized approach to treatment is the best way to meet my client’s needs, and is often the most effective way to establish a roadmap for change.
