I’m a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker, serving Rhide Island and Massachusetts, with over 10 years of experience across a variety of mental health settings including Butler Hospital and Rhode Island Hospital.

My work is rooted in evidence-based practices which include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Motivational Interviewing. My education includes a Bachelor’s in Social Work from Providence College and a Masters in Social Work from Rhode Island College.
