I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker licensed in Rhode Island with 2 years of direct psychotherapy experience working with children, adolescents, and families. In addition, I have over 10 years experience mentoring youth and families. I have worked with teens with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, lack of self esteem, OCD and Panic Disorder. I have also worked with many teens who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.
My counseling style is warm, interactive, and goal oriented. I believe in treating all teens with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, solution focused, psychodynamic, and rational-emotive counseling. I also have experience with DBT (Dialect Behavioral Therapy). I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

She's empathetic, professional and attentive. I feel comfortable talking to her, and confident that I'll get the support I need.
