We all experience hardship, and I believe we also all have the ability to heal and grow. I'm a licensed psychologist who provides individual, couples/family, and group therapy to adults of all identities. I specialize in helping: (a) individuals + students who feel anxious or overwhelmed to improve coping and increase comfort with themselves, their feelings, and others; (b) couples/families to improve communication + change hurtful relational patterns; and (c) aspiring + current parents throughout the complex family planning + adjustment process, including grief/loss, coping with uncertainty, and adjustment to parenthood.

Through a combination of self-awareness and skill building, I help clients to recognize their role in making desired changes, build strategies for healthier coping + relational functioning, and translate their values into action to live more secure, satisfying, and connected lives. I'm trained in both behavioral (CBT, ACT) and psychodynamic therapy.

I believe that we are both hurt and healed in the context of relationships, and I offer a compassionate and honest therapy relationship to support enduring change, emotional health, and fulfillment. To get started, please contact me to set up a phone consult. I accept UMass student insurance (Cigna), most plans that have OON benefits (PPO/POS plans) + BCBS.
