Welcome to my practice
Finding balance in your life can be challenging. My practice will help you regain this and provide you with the skills you need to cope with your emotions effectively. I’m a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and graduated from the University of Connecticut.
I specialize in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. This type of treatment can help anyone that struggles with regulating their emotions in an effective manner. It has been proven to help those who struggle with depression, anxiety, trauma and Borderline Personality Disorder.
I became interested in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and those who struggle with regulating their emotions when I was in undergraduate school. I grew an interest in learning more about self-harm and what is the most effective treatment. I was able to land an internship at The Institute of Living in the DBT program. This experience during graduate school gave me a unique exposure in working with those who struggle with Borderline Personality Disorder, trauma, anxiety and other affective disorders. I was able to learn how to treat those who engage in self-harm and other impulsive behaviors. I co-facilitated DBT groups this involved Skills Training, Diary Cards and Chain of Analysis.
In my work experience as an LCSW I worked with children and adolescents both in an outpatient and intensive outpatient level of care. I also had the experience in working with adults in an outpatient setting. This opportunity allowed me to implement and facilitate DBT groups. This included Diary Cards and Skills Training days.
If you are struggling with your emotions and sense of self, please feel free to reach out to me. I want to help you understand and validate your own emotions. My specialty is treating young adults maneuvering challenging life transitions as well. I will help you find balance in your life all while learning coping skills.
