** COVID-19 Public Health Emergency Update **
For the health, safety, and well-being of my clients, I am only offering video and phone sessions at this time. I will offer in-person services again when when the mask mandate for healthcare workers is lifted.
Locations and Availability
I offer video and phone teletherapy services to clients in Massachusetts, using a secure, HIPAA-compliant platform, Tuesdays through Thursdays. I am not offering in-person services at this time, but I hope to resume offering them by Spring of 2022. Please note that I will be moving my office from Damonmill Square in Concord to The Landing at Hudson Mills in Hudson, MA in February.
I provide staff trainings at facilities throughout the Metro Boston, Metro West and Central Massachusetts. Please contact me to discuss your needs and how I may be able to assist you.
I am a licensed clinical psychologist and health service provider with over 12 years of experience. I have trained and/or worked in a broad range of settings and with a variety of psychological problems, including:
Individual, group, and family therapy with college students, veterans, court-ordered individuals, children, adolescents, families, adults and older adults
Psychological and neuropsychological assessment in both outpatient and locked settings
Inpatient psychiatric units at medical centers and psychiatric hospitals
Locked residential programs for individuals with serious mental illness, substance abuse, and/or significant behavior problems
Evaluating individuals brought into an Emergency Department due to safety concerns
Assessing and treating clients in skilled nursing facilities and assisted living facilities
Since 2010, my clinical work has focused on adults and older adults. I greatly enjoy working with older people and their families, and I have several years of experience working in skilled nursing facilities, where I performed cognitive evaluations, created behavior plans for residents with dementia, and provided individual and family therapy for a wide range of disorders.
I also worked as the Director of Professional Affairs for the Massachusetts Psychological Associationfrom 2016 to 2021. My role there included advocating for improvements in mental health care through legislative and regulatory changes, serving on behavioral health-related state task forces and work groups, and providing practice-related consultations to other psychologists.
My other professional passion is teaching and training. I spent 4 years as a Clinical Assistant Professor in the Psychology Department at the University of New Hampshire. I also created a number of training programs for clinical and non-clinical staff in skilled nursing facilities, and continues to provide conference presentations and continuing education seminars for mental health professionals.
