My approach

My approach is to provide support, guidance, and compassion to individuals seeking help. I am a clinical social worker with an expertise in mood disorders, relationship issues, and life transitions. I also have a special interest in eating disorders, chronic illnesses, and somatic symptom disorders focusing on the medical and psychological complexities often associated with these diagnoses. I mainly work with children, adolescents, young adults, and their families. However, I have begun to use family-based approaches in a broader context such as through my therapeutic work with couples and adult individuals. Moreover, I have experience in outpatient and inpatient care, as well as in administering diagnostic evaluations and conducting crisis assessments. I refined my skills and approach while training at Hasbro Children's Eating Disorder Program and at Gateway Healthcare's Med-Psych unit (a collaborative project with the Partial Hospital Program at Hasbro). Rooted in family-based therapy, my commitment to my clients is to help them identify, understand, and re-imagine life stressors as controllable opportunities for personal growth.
