More about me: Self-care is an integral part of my practice. When not working I enjoy all things sports, music, spending time with loved ones, and lousy TV. I try as much as possible to experience everything western Massachusetts has to offer in terms of food, hiking, and travel destinations. I’d like to think that I bring a passion to all the areas of psychology I practice in. I feel fortunate to be a member of the UMass community and continue to learn from everyone I meet.
