Christian Counseling in Cambridge, MA—Christian Counselors and Therapists
While it might be difficult to admit, there are instances in which sustaining one’s strong Christian values is challenging. If you’re being honest with yourself, you can probably admit this to be true, but it’s still perplexing, nonetheless. I mean, think about it: You devote so much time and energy into building a resilient relationship with God, as well as strong relationships with your loved ones, but sometimes that means moving your personal needs to the wayside. Life becomes so busy, so demanding that you forget to dedicate this important time to your faith.
While other worldviews lead us to sit in the midst of life’s joys, foreseeing the coming sorrows, Christianity empowers its people to sit in the midst of this world’s sorrows, tasting the coming joy. –Timothy Keller

Hello. I am a licensed independent clinical social worker in the Greater Boston area. I received my B.A. in Society and Health in 2008 from Simmons University. After graduating from undergrad, I worked in retail for two years while looking for opportunities to volunteer with different non-profit organizations in Boston. I was accepted into the Clinical Social Work program in Fall 2010. I graduated from Simmons University with my MSW in 2012. I am someone who is passionate in learning more about how the effects of trauma, institutionalized racism, violence, poverty, sexism, sex work, transphobia, and homophobia impact an individual's or group of individuals access to healthcare, mental health care, housing, employment, and other services. I have experience working with a variety of individuals experiencing challenges with unemployment, trauma, addiction, mental health, violence including intimate partner violence, gun violence, and gang violence. My approaches to individual therapy include, but are not limited to the following: Harm Reduction, Trauma-Informed, Solution Focused Therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I come from the belief that individuals do not exist in a vacuum; there are systems in place that act upon individuals and navigating these systems can be incredibly intimidating and challenging. My goal as a clinician is to be able to provide clients the space, tools, and peace they need to process difficult emotions and life transitions.

Mark Twain said “The two most important days of our lives are the day we are born and the day we find out why.” My personal philosophy is similar in that I firmly believe all persons have purpose; just finding it and living it can be overwhelming .. but it is there.
I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor for the state of Massachusetts, and I love my job! I began this journey in NYC where I received my undergraduate from Queens College in Psychology. My husband and I moved to New Hampshire and I received my M.Ed. from UNH in Educational Counseling. I continued with an MS from GCU in Substance Abuse Counseling and rounded off with my CAGS from Rivier University in Clinical Counseling.
My background is so diverse that I doubt there is a population, setting or disorder that I haven’t successfully engaged in, though trauma and addiction are my specialties. The populations I most align with are children and adults/older adults; especially women. My therapeutic approach is a holistic, client-centered one including psychodynamic principles, CBT and DBT. For children, and sometimes adults, I enjoy the use of sandtray and traditional play therapies.
We’re still looking for the best providers to join our team at Cambridge (929).
