“Our lives are not our own. From womb to tomb, we are bound to others, past and present, and
by each crime and every kindness, we birth our future.”
David Mitchell, Cloud Atlas
Welcome! If you’ve landed here it’s likely you're looking for a psychotherapist. Choosing
a therapist that you feel comfortable with and has experience addressing the issues that you wish to address can be a challenging
experience. It's my hope that these pages will provide some information about who I am, my professional credentials, the issues
that I specialize in addressing as well as creating an opportunity for us to work together in finding a solution to your concerns.
I graduated from The Boston University School of Social Work in 1995 with a Masters Degree in Social Work, referred
to as an MSW. While at BU I focused on clinical social work and mental health while also obtaining a specialization focused
on group psychotherapy. I am currently licensed in Massachusetts as an Independent Clinical Social Worker, or LICSW. The LICSW
is the highest level of licensure provided to social workers in Massachusetts and allows social workers to provide services
as independent clinicians. I treat a diverse population of folks from varying social classes, races, ethnicities, cultural origins, gender
identities and religious backgrounds. I maintain an open, respectful and curious approach to difference while also searching
for similarities that allow us to connect, build a working relationship and create new possibilities for the life you want
to lead. I maintain a practice that is both kink and LGBTQQIAA welcoming and affirming. It's through this appreciation of the complex nature of
differing and interconnected worldviews and lived experience that I have seen human beings muster great inner-strength to
create change in their lives while recovering and celebrating forgotten personal wisdom.
I have completed extensive post-graduate training and experience
addressing and treating issues pertaining to domestic violence, substance abuse, LGBT issues, family therapy and concerns
relating to human sexuality. I am a certified sex therapist through the American Association of Sexuality Educators,
Counselors, and Therapists and a clinical member of The Society for Sex Therapy And Research. I also belong to several professional
organizations that focus on my areas of clinical practice including The Society for the Scientific Study of Sexuality and
several other profesisonal origanizations.
Professionally, I also teach and have consulted to organizations
on issues such as domestic violence, substance abuse, LGBTQQI issues and health care needs as well as problematic sexual behavior,
healthy and unhealthy interperosnal relationships and sexuality and developed training curricula focused on teaching graduate
students in social work, psychology, and mental health counseling on how to assess, intervene and treat individuals, couples,
and families as well as how to work respectfully and effectively with LGBTQQI populations. I have lectured nationally and
internationally on various topics and issues related to sex and sexuality. I regularly provide consultation to individuals
and organizations interested in improving their clinical skills and program offerings.
