Clinical Social Work/Therapist , LICSW , MHD

(413) 485-7439
I work from the basic assumption that each individual can attain a more satisfying life by learning to become mindful and accepting of troubling thoughts, feelings, and bodily sensations.
In order to actualize what we most desire in our lives, we will examine the limiting functions of thoughts, feelings, & bodily sensations & establish new ways of relating to them so they no longer interfere with our ability to realize a life full of vitality and meaning.
My speciality is working with uniformed services professionals, veterans, police officers, firefighters, emergency medical personnel and correctional officers who struggle with PTSD and other co-occurring conditions such as depression, anxiety, substance abuse, sleep problems, and suicide ideation.
