I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Washington, with over 13 years of experience. I believe in using a strengths-based approach that combines my extensive outdoor and experiential learning experience with mindfulness, motivational interviewing, and cognitive behavioral therapy techniques. My humor, pragmatic view, and straightforward approach make me easy to talk with and learn from. My therapy style is person-centered and I use techniques such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and motivational interviewing. I specialize in working with adults, adolescents, and parents to develop skills to manage symptoms of mood disorders, and enhance interpersonal communication skills.
