For the past 15 years, I have strived to assist clients to achieve mental wellness utilizing strength-based methods. Through assessment of psychosocial and environmental attributes and stressors, clients will receive treatment designed to stabilize mood and enhance overall wellness. My goal is to create a safe space for individuals and families to access mental health services without barriers to treatment.
I am a nationally certified and licensed professional counselor in the Commonwealths of Massachusetts and Virginia, and the District of Columbia specializing in trauma-focused care. My areas of specialized training are crisis intervention, family systems work, military counseling, and behavior modification with clients diagnosed with comorbid disorders (ex. PTSD and polysubstance dependence). As a former emergency services clinician, I welcome first responders and clients with chronic medical problems.
My areas of interest are post-traumatic stress disorder, vicarious traumatization, microaggressions in the workplace, acculturation issues, and personality disorders.
