I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and have been practicing for the past 7 years, working with children, families and adults. I have spent time working with families in local parenting programs as well as with children and their caregivers navigating school and home based difficulties. In recent years, my focus has shifted to working with an adult population which has proven to be a very rewarding experience. Depending on location and availability, I am able to offer in-home sessions with new mothers who have HUSKY insurance.
I participated in a yearlong collaborative while working at Child and Family Agency. The focus of this experience was to learn and implement Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I also completed a yearlong Trauma Certificate with the Justice Resource Institute. I am certified as a Mind Over Mood therapist assisting new mothers in the transition to motherhood and the treatment of mood related symptoms.
I have worked on the Mashantucket Reservation as a Clinician and then as the Clinical Coordinator. Prior to this I worked in a Child Guidance Clinic and spent time in a school based health center guiding middle school students through age-appropriate transitions and immersion in a dual language curriculum.
