Therapy Style

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with 27 years experience. A graduate of Syracuse University, I am trained in strengths-based and generalist practice, meaning I can help you navigate through your rough spots by offering a new perspective, challenging you to reframe your current situation while embracing your existing strengths, courage, and values. We all experience struggles. These struggles creep in multiple times throughout our lives, sometimes when we least expect it. Some are minor, and some stick around and plague us a bit longer. Not one of us is immune to life's difficulties. Whether you have tried therapy before, or this is your maiden voyage, please know there is hope to feel better and to work through the issues you are experiencing. Therapy is meant to be a joint venture - I am ready and willing to walk beside you while you learn, grow and successfully conquer your own unique situation. I look forward to meeting and working with you.

Pronouns

she/her

Why did you become a mental health professional?

Throughout my life, I realized that I started to gravitate toward issues related to self-determination/actualization, social justice, and personal growth.

What are your interests outside of work?

I enjoy cooking (I didn't learn to cook until my late 30's!), gardening, entertaining and all things home decor. I also love to travel with my family - especially to Cape Cod.

What is one thing you do daily that supports your well-being?

I practice mindfulness, gratitude and believe in the practice of routine and simple self-care.

What book have you read more than once?

The Four Agreements - this work provides insights that encourage further examination and revisiting in order to unpack.

Favorite organization/non-profit?

I support many non-profits... but hospice is my very favorite. Having worked with individuals at the end of life, and through bereavement, I feel this is a cause that is not widely embraced.

How do you recharge?

I am a huge proponent of self-care. I make time to enjoy my rural surroundings/property, and spend time with friends supporting local events.

Do you have any pets?

We have 2 beautiful English bulldogs, 3 cats, and several chickens. We used to have a mini donkey and a mini horse. My mini horse (that I inherited from my mother), used to make strange faces at us - we thought he was sick - so we called the vet for an emergency visit - just to learn he was completely fine - just being sassy.
