About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LICSW) and specialize in individual, couples and group therapy. With 16 years of experience as a psychotherapist in diverse communities, and as a graduate of Boston University School of Social Work specializing in psychodynamic therapy, I have expertise with a broad spectrum of clients including gay, lesbian, transgender individuals and couples.

I am also privileged to be part of the team of educators at the BU School of Medicine (BUMS GMS) that will train the next generation of clinicians. I've taught Group Dynamics and Process and lead peer student groups who are in training.

I am an interactive, solution-focused therapist. My therapeutic approach is from a person-in-society perspective and to provide support and practical feedback that effectively addresses personal challenges. With compassion and understanding, I work with each individual, couple or group to build on his/her strengths and attain their most authentic selves.

Prior to becoming a therapist, I worked for 20 years in the information technology field and came to social work after discovering my passions for people and how we live in society. I believe in bringing all my experiences into my work while providing solid boundaries and creating space for healing and growth.
