About Me I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker with a private therapy practice in Beverly, MA. I have a Master’s Degree in Social Work from Simmons College, and have been a practicing psychotherapist since 2001. I have worked in community mental health, and have over 13 years of experience as a therapist in private practice. I am a member of the National Association of Social Workers.
My Approach to Therapy All of my clients can expect to experience a high level of commitment and professionalism in our work together, while also experiencing me as down to earth and having a sense of humor. I value and pay close attention to the details of my relationships with my clients. Additionally, I am extremely conscientious about the timing/scheduling of my appointments so as to avoid clients having to wait for their appointment to start.
My theoretical approach is to integrate the psychological theories that I feel will be most helpful to each individual client. I often utilize psychodynamic, interpersonal, cognitive-behavioral, and mindfulness-informed practices. I work to assist my clients in recognizing and utilizing their personal strengths and resilience to help them work through the challenges they are facing.
Common Issues I Have Worked With: Anxiety/Worry, Stress, Relationships Issues, Family Conflict, Self-Doubt, ADHD, Parenting Difficulties, Perfectionism, Guilt/Shame, Depression, Underachievement
