Clinical Experience & Therapeutic Approach

My clinical experience has involved working with diverse populations and employing multiple therapeutic modalities. Specifically, I have worked with individuals diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, psychotic disorders, and various addictions. Throughout my clinical experience, I have had the privilege to work with gifted and highly sensitive individuals, which sparked a strong interest and passion in this area of expertise.

I recognize the significance of working with gifted and highly sensitive individuals and the unique challenges they may face. My therapeutic approach is centered on providing a secure environment for you to explore and make sense of the world through your unique lens. 



As a result of my clinical training, I have developed a keen interest in the social determinants of health. I am dedicated to ensuring that my practice is an inclusive and welcoming space for all individuals.  Specifically, I am enthusiastic about serving individuals who identify as members of the LGBTQ+ community.

Prior to obtaining my M.A, I earned my B.S in psychology from University of Massachusetts Boston. I am under the supervision of TheraThrive’s Lead Therapist Katie Malone, LMFT, LPCC.
