I earned my Master’s degree in Social Work from Simmons College in 2011. Before joining Dana Group, I worked with children, families, and adults within various settings. I have a background as an international missionary for underserved countries with children exposed to trauma as well as with individuals exposed to domestic violence. Based on my experiences, I have extensive training and a professional interest in working with victims/survivors of domestic violence. Furthermore, I have experience working with women in an outpatient setting as well as with women in group-residential care. In particular, I worked in early intervention focusing on the parent / child dyad at Children’s Hospital. Working at Children’s Hospital, my experience centered around supporting children and their families, providing psychoeducation around various medical diagnoses, and strategizing next steps for the family unit. In the therapy space, I enjoy implementing person-centered, strengths-based approaches with clients.
