Not accepting new clients
(Accepting new clients) I help struggling teens and adults, distant couples, and hurting families. I provide a safe and comfortable atmosphere for people to explore their pain and challenges without fear of judgment. Building a strong relationship where my clients know they are cared for and are free to laugh or cry (we do a lot of both) is extremely important to me. As a social worker at heart, I try to help those I work with recognize the strengths they have as well as to recognize where one's lifestyle may be out of balance with one's personal values.

I specialize in working with clients with eating disorder, trauma, and addiction. I have a particular interest for working with marginalized voices, especially within the LGBTQ+ community. One passion is helping those impacted by power-based personal violence and assisting them in reclaiming their voice. I believe in fostering mutually-empowering relationships with clients that assist in supporting them through their personal journeys and encouraging them to access their inner strength and capacity for change. I enjoy working with individuals, families, and groups, with a special interest in the emerging adult population.

As a parent, you've been worried about what you see your teen going through. The excessive anxiety about school, relationships, and the struggle to adjust to any change in routine. Their stress level is high and they isolate from friends and family. You watch them play video games, scroll through social media and binge on Netfilx, but they never tell you what's going on. That's the scariest part. You want to help them, but you can't break through. And on top of that, the pandemic. You know it can't continue like this any longer.

Seeing Clients anywhere in CT & MA via Telehealth. Sometimes, it feels like life happens to us not with us. Hard-won accomplishments can still leave us unsatisfied. Our relationships may feel out of balance. Internal struggles and the major and minor transitions in life can unmoor the steadiest of us; leave us wrestling with intense, unnerving emotions, uncomfortable questions, and a need to make meaning of it all. Changing relationships and circumstances can trigger states of uncertainty, despair and pain. Having a dedicated and compassionate facilitator to navigate with you through your process can bring tremendous benefit.

Don’t give up. You are not alone. When we are experiencing emotional pain, healing occurs when an empathic and compassionate therapist helps you to explore and understand what your psyche needs. Pain is inevitable at times in our lives, although suffering does not have to be. Emotional discomfort is the signal from your psyche that change is necessary and crises and challenges can be opportunities for our psyche to heal and grow. If you have experienced a loss, are trying to manage conflicts with a partner, friend or colleague, or you are seeking to improve your relationship with yourself, therapy can be helpful.
