I am a licensed clinical social worker who started in the health care field in 1989 and I have been practicing individual and group psychotherapy since 1997. I received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Keene State College, and my Master’s of Social Work degree from the University of Connecticut, with a specialization in social group work and casework. I have experience working as a therapist in a partial hospitalization program, and as a crisis clinician doing psychiatric consultations within a hospital setting. In addition to working with the general population, I have also worked with veterans and their families. I work with people living with a wide range of disorders including depression, anxiety, substance abuse, and a variety of stress-related disorders resulting from difficult life transitions. I have brought my skills into the classroom teaching as an Adjunct Faculty Member of the Social Work Department at the University of Saint Joseph, West Hartford, CT as well as teaching Psychiatry Residents, Nursing Students, Social Work, Psychology and Chaplain Interns about individual and group psychotherapy at the UConn Health Center in Farmington, CT. I bring to my practice life experience and a deep desire to assist others in psychological and spiritual healing. My intention for my clients is that they feel uplifted and more closely aligned with their hearts’ true desires as a result of engaging in therapy.
