About Me

I started my career in a Taunton State Hospital for the vulnerable population in Taunton, MA. This experience brought me face to face with what addiction, mental health, poverty and social structure can do to a person. This job provided me with the education to begin my journey to trying to understand substance abuse and mental health. It also introduced me to some of the most wonderful, creative and inspiring people. I was hooked.


For the next several years I worked in many areas of social services all focusing around the needs of substance abusing clients and women who were affected by sexual assault and domestic violence. In 2001 I made the decision to return to school to complete a Master's Degree in Counseling from Cambridge College. Upon graduation in 2005 I began my career as a therapist specializing in women who have trauma issues and substance abuse. I have lead group practices to support people and Women with Dual Diagnosis Issues. I have worked as part of a private practice for over two years with several colleagues. I have also maintained a private practice for the last 4 years to treat people struggling with addiction issues and mental health. I look forward to continue to grow my practice and introducing new ideas for treatment protocol for women issues, children affected by addiction, family work around opioid dependence.
