About the Provider
As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) at Nourished Minds Counseling + Wellness, I specialize in treating adolescents and adults struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, eating disorders, and OCD. I am a certified yoga teacher and yoga therapist, and often infuse this background into my clinical work to help clients befriend their body and regulate their nervous system. My approach incorporates Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Internal Family Systems (IFS), and Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP). Most importantly, however, we focus on building trust and connection, and then personalize the therapy based on what will best serve the client’s goals. I strive to be a collaborative and interactive therapist, co-creating an engaging and dynamic atmosphere in sessions.
I received my Master of Social Work (MSW) from Simmons University. Prior to joining Nourished Minds, I worked at the Simmons College Counseling Center, where I provided individual therapy to undergraduate students. I deeply appreciate the experience I gained working with students to build their toolbox of coping skills to navigate through anxiety, depression, eating disorders, self-harm, relationship challenges, trauma, chronic pain, and identity development.
My decade of experience as a yoga teacher and yoga therapist helps me appreciate the complicated relationship we can have with our bodies. I have taught therapeutic yoga at several Boston-area eating disorder treatment programs. I often work with clients who have not necessarily had a positive relationship with yoga, mindfulness, or movement, and love the challenge of taking creative approaches to help improve the mind-body relationship. I am a member of the Multi-Service Eating Disorders Association (MEDA), the International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT), and the National Association of Social Workers (NASW).
I work with clients across the spectrum of gender identity and sexual orientation. I love supporting clients who are navigating polyamory and nonmonogamy. An understanding of the role that structural oppression plays in our mental health is infused in my clinical work, along with anti-racist education and practice. Prior to working directly with clients, I worked in the nonprofit sector, focused on social justice and policy change. This dedication to shifting systems and organizations continues to drive how I show up in the world, working towards long-term cultural change where everyone has access to greater health and wellbeing.
