I work with adults, teenagers and couples to help them find ways to feel better in their lives, in their relationships and in their own skin. General issues include self-esteem, sadness, stress, and dealing with new or difficult situations. We often talk about the challenges and choices involved in relationships - romantic, social, family and professional. I also work with many people struggling with food and weight issues, such as body image, self-presentation, eating disorders and emotional eating. We strive for physical and emotional wellness with a balanced individualized approach.

There’s a part of you that feels like you’re about to ​🅴🆇🅿🅻🅾🅳🅴​​​​​​​! You're stuck in a repetitive cycle with little improvement. You find it hard to smile sometimes and it makes you wonder when peace will arrive. You’re burnt out, too tired to hang with friends, too overwhelmed to play with your kids and the sight of your significant other is not helping. How long will continue with these repetitive cycles? This isn’t a healthy way to live and if you continue you may end up resenting the world and yourself. Operating from a place of discomfort is never easy and finding the help you deserve can be even harder.

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.

I have a deep-rooted commitment to helping individuals from diverse backgrounds, backed by professional expertise in a variety of settings. But I also believe that clients are the experts on their own lives. I have worked with clients of all ages, from as young as three to late adulthood, in outpatient therapy settings; methadone clinics; intensive outpatient programs; inpatient psychiatric units, and in-home crisis intervention. One thing remains constant: the focus of therapy should be based on what YOU wish to work on.

I believe that the single most important component of the treatment process is the therapeutic relationship. It develops over time as a product of trust in the therapist and feeling like you have been heard. It is the vehicle by which change comes about and the connection of feelings with thought gets translated into action.

I am a psychotherapist with 23 years experience treating clients using DBT, DBT-PE and psychotherapy. I received my intensive DBT training through Behavior Tech in 1997. In March of 2018 I completed intensive training in DBT-PE also through Behavior Tech. DBT focuses on the dialectic of acceptance and change as well as teaching and meeting the client where they are rather than discharging clients when they are stuck. In 2022, I completed a 2 year psychodynamic psychotherapy program through Western New England Psychoanalytic Society and incorporate this training in my practice.

Why is it that only 41% of people with mental health needs have sought out services within the past year? Perhaps there was a lack of connection between the client and the therapist. I hope to be that warm connection to a therapist that you have been seeking. Welcome! Congratulations on taking that first step towards personal growth and transformation - let's take the next part of your journey together. I can help you tackle those issues that have been keeping you stuck, to help you to move toward clarity, just by helping you discover the internal resources that you already possess.

Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is characterized by pervasive instability in moods, interpersonal relationships, self-image, and behavior. This instability often disrupts family and work life, long-term planning, and an individual's sense of identity.
