About

Women! Are you overwhelmed? Tired? Need a place to sort things out? I specialize in Women's empowerment and liberation. I'm a holistic counselor who employs positive psychology to help you make room for difficult emotions, manage stress and help you live the life you want. In my therapy room you'll experience a caring approach focusing on your healing and empowerment. I specialize in women's empowerment as well as LGBTQI (and non labeling) clients and those looking to improve their lives from a place of strength. I'm listed as a mental health provider through True Colors, Sexual Minority Youth & Family Services, Connecticut.
Through meditation, mindfulness, talk therapy and humor, too, I treat individuals and couples: all genders, non-binary and sexual orientation. Through a caring approach you'll get relief and happiness. You can recover from life difficulties and live the life you dream of in a supportive environment using CBT, DBT and psychotherapy.
I have a variety of approaches in my counselor tool-box. I offer therapy utilizing mindfulness, meditation, art and writing. Practical problem-solving will also be valuable in our sessions together. I see our relationship as the primary healing tool - leading toward your personal empowerment and fulfillment. We're going to laugh, too, I promise -
