The resilience of the human spirit is astounding.
I have been privileged in my career, my experience includes working in many different setting. Those settings include, a Residential Treatment Program for troubled young people, Community based agencies, Schools, Hospitals and Substance Abuse Facilities. For the past twenty-five years I have been in private practice. My practice includes counseling services to folks ranging in age from five to nineties. I often tell new patients that I consider myself one of the lucky few grown-ups who likes her boss and is never bored.
My education both formal and informal is on-going. I hold a Master’s in Social Work from Boston University, but my teachers appear daily. In particular, dogs and children are forever reminding me to be present. My patients teach me to listen with compassion and without judgement. I do not and will not “assume” I have answers that apply to all the people, all of the time. Instead, I see my role as the therapist to be that of “walking along side of others”.
The resilience of the human spirit is astounding. I have met people who have survived devastating losses, unspeakable trauma, and betrayals of every kind imaginable.
I hope to continue learning for a long time to come.
Some of my areas of considerable knowledge include:
- Marital and couple conflict
