I am a licensed social worker having worked in several outpatient settings including Head start and You Inc in Southbridge, with a graduate degree from Springfield College. My interest is in in CBT and Compassion Focused Therapy.
Area’s of specialty;
- Anxiety and PTSD.
- Relational issues
I work with adults, Adolescents, Couples and Families.
Currently in my practice I use an evidenced based type of therapy that has been embraced for years. Compassion based therapy provides the client with a total acceptance and validation for their well being.
As your therapist this will be my goal to strengthen your trust in others. In my practice I have truly been blessed with the ability to form a trusting therapeutic relationship with my clients. I can offer you a non judgmental, caring and accepting environment that I feel will improve your ability to trust once again. I look forward to meeting with you and starting your healing process together.
