About My Clients
My clients tend to be adults living with disabilities, and mental or physical health issues or caring for someone with the same. They want to find connection and healing while living in a demanding rigid society. They have experienced trauma and/or spiritual/religious abuse and want to learn to use their brains and bodies to fully heal. They have a sense of humor and are open minded to using creative strategies within their life's journey.
I am a licensed clinical social worker who has worked for many years with those having to navigate both the medical and behavioral health system. I approach therapy knowing you are the expert in yourself. I use an eclectic approach focusing on your personal strengths and by incorporating your beliefs, creativity, lived experience, humor and place in society as a beginning to your healing. I am strongly committed to anti racism and social justice in all its forms. I am not a member of any religious or spiritual group but have knowledge of various groups and a special interest in helping those who have experienced religious trauma.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I have my own lived experience in many of the issues I help my clients with, am part of the lgbtqia+ community, and support various groups supporting anti-racist work, Indigenous causes, support and mutual aid. I am a member of the international cultic studies association (ICSA) and support many other organizations that are committed to healing, informing, affirming and amplifying the voices of the oppressed and traumatized as well as alleviating the suffering of other humans. I am committed to honoring and remembering the indigenous people whose land was stolen from them by colonialists, who committed atrocities and perpetuated generational trauma. I remember and acknowledge that Madison, CT should still be home to the Hammonasset, Wappinger and Quinnipiac tribes.
