In 2017, I completed my Masters in Social Work at Boston College and began my career as a clinician at Wayside Youth and Family Support Network. During this time, I provided in-home therapy for the purpose of restoring, improving and enhancing the psychosocial functioning of children ranging from 6-18 years old. My goal was to grow a deeper understanding of the impact of sociocultural and intergenerational trauma on developing youth and adolescents. While working at Wayside, I completed an intensive training in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). I regularly used DBT with clients for crisis stabilization and prevention of out-of-home placement.
In 2020, I transitioned to a group practice where my primary focus was learning, refining and adapting my skill set in EMDR Therapy.
Today, I find that EMDR is the single most effective tool in my clinical toolbox. I have found this modality to be helpful for those who “hit a wall” with standard talk-therapy. The purposeful and relational techniques of this type of therapy can support a person with becoming “unstuck” from the stress that has lingered in their body for a long period of time. I have witnessed EMDR transform people's lives by helping them overcome long standing negative core beliefs, debilitating symptoms of PTSD, intergenerational trauma, panic disorders and many other conditions that make it challenging to connect to our sense of self.
As part of my commitment to continuing education, I recently completed training in Attachment-Focused EMDR through the Parnell Institute.
