I specialize in providing Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and treatment of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and other trauma-related disorders. I also have extensive experience in the treatment of substance use disorders, mood disorders, and anxiety disorders.
I began providing outpatient mental health treatment at a mental health agency in the Boston area in 2007 as part of my second clinical internship in graduate school. I continued working there until I moved back to western Massachusetts in 2012.
Since returning to the area, I continued working in outpatient mental health for a local agency until I opened my own practice in early 2021. I have held various supervisory roles since 2014.
I have been licensed (#116110) by the state of Massachusetts as a licensed independent clinical social worker (LICSW) since 2010.
I earned my bachelor's degree in psychology from Mount Holyoke College in South Hadley, MA in 2003. I earned my master of social work degree from Simmons University in Boston, MA in 2008.
I have had extensive training in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and also have training in Internal Family Systems (IFS).
I am a Western MA native living in Hampshire County with my spouse and cat. I spend my free time cooking, gardening, reading, working on restoring my nearly 100-year-old home, and taking photos (all photos on the site are mine!). My pronouns are she/her.
