Welcome to my practice

Hello and welcome to my practice!
Here is some information about myself and my practice.

I am a licensed independent clinical social worker (LICSW) working in private practice located at 1145 Reservoir Avenue Cranston, RI.  I received a Masters Degree in Clinical Social Work (MSW) through Rhode Island College in 1998.

Before private practice I worked for many years in varied settings working with a wide range of mental health and psychiatric issues. I gained substantial and excellent employment experience through my work at psychiatric hospitals, residential facilities and community mental health settings providing support and counseling/psychotherapy services.
I am a very non-judgemental person who is truly interested in helping. I offer empirically supported,  solution focused treatment methods. Together we can use my training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy ( CBT ) , Exposure Responce Prevention ( ERP ), Mindfuliness based CBT, DBT, ACT,  Psychodynamic Therapy, Grief Counseling, Relaxation training, and others. To improve your current quality of life.

 Developing a comfortable supportive working relationship so we can begin our work together is key. You know you have found the right therapist for your needs when you can feel that connection of understanding. My therapeutic approach is to provide support and practical feedback to help clients effectively address personal life challenges. With compassion and understanding, I work with each individual to help you build on your strengths and attain the personal growth you are committed to accomplishing.

Initial 15 minute phone consultation is free.
