About Me

I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker (LICSW) in Massachusetts and New Hampshire specializing in compassionate and non pathologizing psychotherapy with adults ages 18+ for the past 11 years. My clients say I'm warm, supportive, and have made positive changes in their life and found solutions to tough problems through working with me. I have also served on the Adjunct Faculty at Rivier University Department of Social Work. I have over 20 years experience of providing training and consulting in communications, learning & organizational development for large corporations, municipalities, and health care facilities. I have been an HR Learning and Communications Consultant to major corporations in the Boston area. I have produced and taught hundreds of workshops and facilitated teambuilding sessions highly praised by participants. I graduated with a Master of Arts in Communication from Syracuse University and a Masters in Clinical Social Work from Boston University.
