I am a clinical social worker with over 15 years of group and individual work experience. I am the Director of Inpatient Group Therapy at Mclean Hospital and the head of the group therapy program at Brandeis University’s Counseling Center. I was the founding Lead Therapist at McLean’s Spirituality and Mental Health Department, helping to develop the hospital’s first-ever Spirituality and Treatment groups.
“Hadassah: Your beautiful soul, and lovely face and smile have such a calming effect on me and I think others. You so beautifully allow room for some amazing and deep sharing.” – Spirituality Workshop participant
When I walk into a group room or an individual session, I am blown away by people’s desire to live their most effective life. I give my clients so much credit for taking the step to ask for help. They want to change.
I love using psychodynamic, psychoeducational, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy approaches to engage with clients and find commonalities among group members. And it’s rewarding to witness their courage through self-exploration. I help people be kinder to themselves and realize that they are not the only ones going through this.
