My approach is to provide support, guidance, and compassion to individuals seeking help. I am a clinical social worker with expertise in the areas of eating disorders, chronic illnesses, and somatic symptom disorders. My focus is the medical and psychological complexities often associated with these diagnoses. I mainly work with children, adolescents, young adults, and their families. I have experience in outpatient and inpatient care, as well as in administering diagnostic evaluations and conducting crisis assessments. Moreover, 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.
