I received my Master’s degree in Clinical Social work from Simmons College in 2019. I have had the opportunity to work with children and families in a number of settings including home based, schools and hospitals. My specialties include working with children and adolescents who experience a myriad of behavioral, medical and mental health difficulties. I appreciate the connection of mind and body while utilizing a strengths-based approach with an emphasis on the cognitive behavioral model.
