working on my degree in psychology I went to work as a counselor
in a group home for adolescents. I helped these kids deal with
self esteem issues, stress and depression, physical, mental and
sexual abuse and other emotional issues. My daily interactions
with these adolescents fostered in me a desire to do more. I went
on to bringing into my home several foster kids many of whom still
are a part of my life.
During this time several family members and friends began the long road into
infertility and adoption. My first hand experiences along with further studies
and dealings in the subject of infertility and adoption has enabled me to be
an informed and understanding therapist in the field.
I continued my studies and obtained a Masters Degree in Social Work. It was
during my graduate studies that I went on to expand my knowledge of the transgender
community through research projects and case studies. I continue to broaden
my transgender knowledge through my clients, readings, conferences and trainings.
While in graduate
school I was employed by the state of MA as a social worker. During
this time my focus was on the safeguarding of children and adolescents.
After some time I opted to broaden my therapeutic background by
obtaining a counseling position with a private family counseling
agency. While at by this agency I worked with children, adolescents,
and adults. I have dealt with issues of depression, stress, abuse,
gender issues as well many other issues.
I went to open
my own practice and every day I looks forward to to working with
and helping my clients. I can truly say that I love my work.
