Social Worker-Clinical

Biography

Clinical social work is a second career for me. I spent many years in higher education, specifically at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, working in several capacities with the undergraduate student population. I often found myself in the informal role of counselor, as students would share with me the impact of such a high pressure environment on their mental health. It was a comfortable role for me and felt like a natural fit. I also come from a family of social workers and human service professionals, so I suppose this line of work is in my DNA!

I have been a clinical social worker for about 6 years. I’m a generalist, but my areas of interest include: trauma, depression, life transitions and aging. I enjoy working with adults, teenagers, college-age adults, elders and immigrants/refugees.

Human beings are incredibly resilient. Sometimes we don’t know it. And sometimes we feel hopeless. I believe we all have within us the capacity to heal ourselves. My approach in working with clients is a strengths-based one where together we discover and nurture that capacity towards the goals of self-acceptance, positive change, and self-compassion.
