Adult, Child, and Family Therapy in Cranston, Rhode Island
A passion for social justice and human creativity are at the heart of my practice of psychotherapy. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in British Literature and Women’s Studies and a Masters in Social Work from Smith College. I have practiced individual, family, and group psychotherapy in hospitals, homes, prisons, schools, and residential programs. In 2008, I opened my private practice and began specializing in identity development using Jungian archetypes.
I have always been a writer, and someone who finds reading and writing for both communicating and coping. My fiction has been anthologized in Sundays at Sarah’s and is published in several print and online journals including Pif Magazine and The Vestal Review. I have also published several articles and interviews online, and continue to write for the social advocacy blog I started in 2002, called Kmareka.com. To maintain my involvement on social justice issues, I serve as Treasurer on the Board at the Rhode Island Center for Law and Public Policy.
As a therapist, I believe that experiences in the earliest years of life (0-10) form an imprint and have a lasting effect on what comes after. I also believe that we all have an internal healer and we heal through the process of self-understanding and relational support.
In my personal life, I enjoy listening to great jazz and classical music, cooking unique foods, spending time outdoors, reading and writing fiction, and getting together with friends and family. I live in Cranston, Rhode Island, with my husband and two daughters.
