I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker in both RI and MA. I enjoy working with adolescents and adults with Autism and anxiety disorders, including OCD, phobias, and selective mutism, to learn the tools necessary to help them feel comfortable and confident in themselves. Most of my client's goals include learning to cope with fears and obsessive/intrusive thoughts, developing positive communication skills, and increasing self-esteem, confidence, and compassion for themselves. I utilize exposure therapy, ERP (exposure and response prevention), CBT, and ACT.
I value accountability and having clear, concrete goals in my personal life. As a therapist, I strive to provide my clients with the same level of support. Whether you need an empathetic ear to listen to you or benefit from weekly "homework assignments," I will ensure your therapy experience is tailored to your needs.
Therapy is not 'one size fits all,' so I offer a free phone call to get us started to see if we could be a good fit. It's essential that you feel comfortable and heard by your therapist and that you see progress being made. If at any point I am no longer a good match for my clients, it is important to me that I can help them find a therapist who is.

In my practice, I often utilize Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) to help people with OCD. It's considered the 'gold standard' of treatment and helps clients face everyday distressing thoughts and situations. We all experience anxiety and stress in our lives, so the goal isn't to eliminate these emotions completely. Instead, we work on building your ability to handle these stressors.
