At the foundation of my approach, I conceptualizes all individuals and their interactions with others (relationships) within the Systems framework. More simply, one cannot understand the dynamic of our struggles without exploring the familial, social, and cultural contexts. My work is based in Solution-Focused Therapy. This encourages dialogue to explore client's strengths, resources, and past successes. My collaborative approach fosters a sense of agency in clients, creating a co-constructed dialogue to explore and create realistic attainable therapeutic goals. This approach further emphasizes that clients best understand their unique circumstances. Therefore the role of therapist is to support a co-constructed dialogue around necessary changes in perceptions, thoughts, and behaviors. Lastly, I bring to the environment a compassionate and gentle stance, providing my clients with a warm and safe environment allowing more opportunity for clients to deeply explore their history and present struggles.

Bio
Originally from New Jersey, I moved to Philadelphia to study Psychology and Cognitive Neuroscience at Temple University. Right after graduation, I moved to Hartford, Connecticut where I took a position as a Clinical Research Assistant at Olin Neuropsychiatry Research Center at the Institute of Living. Here, I dedicated 6 years to Child and Adolescent Neuropsychiatric Research leading to four publications for my work. During this time I also embarked on completing a Master's Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Saint Joseph College in West Hartford. Before opening Collaborative Family Solutions, I worked at The Village for Families and Children as a Clinician providing Intensive In-home Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Services (IICAPS) in Hartford. This was followed by a position at Wheeler Clinic as a Child & Adolescent Outpatient Clinician in Bristol and Plainville. I continue to also practice at Newport Academy as a Residential Family and Primary Therapist. I am a member of the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy and Connecticut Association for Marriage and Family Therapy. During my free time, I enjoy being outdoors and spending quality time with my family.
