Meet your therapist

Welcome to taking the first step into improving your life or the life of someone you care about. Why struggle to find your path alone?

I have worked in the healthcare field for over 12 years with children and adults. From organizations like, Hasbro Children’s Hospital, Brown University, Hospice, and Day One Trauma Center. I was managing a state-wide program to address opioid related overdoses, provide community education and distribution of naloxone at URI and I also teach at Post University in the Early Childhood Department. My clinical experience is extensive but you are an expert as well. We will work together on goals to alleviate your pain and increase your motivation. I am a level 2 EMDR trained trauma therapist and Certified Dance Mindfulness facilitator.                            

Some areas of specialty: Grief, Trauma, Infertility, History of Abuse, Immigration, LGBTQQ+, Depression, and Anxiety. Fluent in Spanish and bi-cultural.
