I am a clinical psychologist who is licensed in Massachusetts and Rhode Island. I earned my master’s and doctoral degrees from William James College. My clinical training includes college counseling, inpatient and outpatient settings, neuropsychological assessments, and both individual and group therapy. I particularly enjoy working with anxiety in the autism context as it is a chronically underserved population.

What motivated you to specialize in working with autistic adults?

Over the last 10 years, much of the work I’ve done has included working with the autistic community in a a number of different settings- in schools, in therapy, in hospitals, and for assessment in outpatient settings. Because a formal diagnoses is often the first step toward services and support for autism, I greatly enjoy being a part of that process, and love that our work at Prosper is providing a new space for autistic adults.

How do you bring a strengths-based, affirming approach to your client work?

I have a great appreciation for people who think differently and enjoy being part of highlighting, encouraging, and exploring those differences. Because autistic adults are a chronically underserved population, a strengths-based and affirming approach is an important starting point in delivering the validation, care, and support that is needed. I enjoy being part of a team that employs this approach and seeks to deliver affirmative and strengths-based care.
