I am a clinical social worker with over 15 years of group and individual work experience. As the Lead Therapist at McLean’s Spirituality and Mental Health Department, I have helped develop the hospital’s first-ever Spirituality and Treatment groups. I am also the head of group programming at the Brandeis Counseling Center.
“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, October, 2020
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 like helping people be kinder to themselves and realize that they are not the only ones going through this.
