In addition to my private practice, I provide psychotherapy and clinical services at a local outpatient mental health agency. I am a graduate of the Smith College School for Social Work. I am also working towards an (MA) in English at Middlebury College (Bread Loaf School of English), which I attend during the summer. I am licensed in the state of Massachusetts as a Licensed Certified Social Worker (LCSW). I am pre-independent licensure in Vermont. I work with a senior-level clinical supervisor, and I have been in direct clinical practice for about 3 years.
Before my private practice and agency work, I worked as a Clinical Intern at Smith College Counseling Services, where I provided individual psychotherapy to undergraduate students in person and through telehealth services. My other graduate internship was located at an outpatient facility in Western Massachusetts where I worked with adolescents/young adults (ages 16-30) recovering from early psychosis. I worked in a number of other mental health settings before I went to graduate school, facilitating support groups for Women, LGBTQ+, Psychiatric Survivors, and Depression/Bipolar.
Before graduate school, I also worked as a journalist for a local newspaper, covering topics like mental health, addiction, hospice care, immigration, social justice, education, the arts, and state politics.
I am a member of the National Association of Social Workers (NASW), the American Group Psychotherapy Association (AGPA), and the US Chapter of the International Society for Psychological and Social Approaches to Psychosis (ISPS-US).
When I’m out of the office, if I’m not reading or writing, I am often working on other creative pursuits, playing with my dogs, visiting with loved ones, bicycling, and taking in nature.
