See about me
I have my MS, LCDP, CCJP, CATP, CGSC and also Recovery Coach Certified when the individual needs. I have 17 years of training in the criminal justice, substance abuse and mental health field.
I am well rounded on the particulars of Rhode Island District Court System. I am particularly concerned with the substance abuse related issues, impact of loss and trauma as well as improving interventions to support trauma recovery for better emotional, physical, and relationship health.
My approach emphasizes the mutual development of goals for therapy and providing ongoing evaluation of the therapeutic approach. Services can include individual, family, & group therapy.
I am trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Mindfulness, Motivational Interviewing, and Crisis Intervention. I continue to seek ongoing updates to my skills and knowledge base.
I have invested in an approach emphasizing a more integrative, dynamic, and holistic approach to mental health and substance abuse.
I work with pre-teens, teens, adults, and families; I believe that it may help benefit them to have a safe space for them to process their thoughts and emotions. I believe, the purpose of therapy, is help set people free of what is truly weighing them down.
