Social Work
  • Smith College School for Social Work , Northampton , MA


I have worked in the Outpatient Psychiatry Service for many years, seeing children, adolescents and their families. I use evidenced based therapies such as CBT and Exposure Therapy to deal with anxiety, depression, and OCD.

Philosophy of Care

As a social worker, I treat the child in the context of their family and wider community, using a strength-based approach.
