Before coming to Boynton Health, I completed a one year fellowship in a primary care clinic through the Division of Adolescent/Young Adult Medicine at Boston Children's Hospital. There, I worked with a multidisciplinary team and received intensive training in conducting eating disorder assessments, crisis management and individual counseling for adolescents with mental health concerns. My previous work has also included counseling all ages in a community mental health center and providing vocational rehabilitation for adults with serious and persistent mental illnesses. I have also worked at an inpatient psychiatric hospital for adolescents with acute psychiatric concerns. There, I led family meetings focused on psychoeducation, conducted brief counseling, case management and group therapy. My clinical interests include mood and anxiety disorders, crisis management, life transitions and adjustments, and serious and persistent mental illness.
