I am a licensed School Social Worker (071), a Licensed Clinical Social Worker for the state of Connecticut, and a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker for the state of Massachusetts. I have spent the past twenty years working in the clinical field of social worker in the state of Massachusetts. I have spent most of my career specializing in areas of child protection, trauma, attachment, and adoption. I have practiced as an independent clinician for private non-profit agencies and for the state welfare system, which has permitted me to experience a wide range of systems and programs. I enjoy working in a field that allows me to make connections with students and their families with the main priority to help students grow in preparation for the future.
