Because once you grasp that your personal beliefs (again, often generational) create your emotions and that those emotions result in your behaviors, you can transform yourself and your relationships. I will help you replace outdated negative beliefs with healthy new ones. You will learn how to communicate and express emotions effectively.

I am a registered nurse and licensed professional counselor. I am multi-dimensional in the services I provide. I see children, adolescents, individuals, couples, and families. I started my career working with and teaching children who were not psychologically ready to move from kindergarten to first grade. My love for helping people inspired me to go back to school and pursue a nursing degree. After moving to Connecticut, I worked as a psych nurse at Waterbury Hospital at Merriman Hall for 6 years. This was a locked unit and it was here that I learned all the family therapy methodology.

In our work together, my goal is to help you make space for conflicted emotions within the safety and comfort of our therapeutic relationship. I believe that our past informs our present and also that we have the power to change our current realities, once we understand them better. We will utilize what happens in the therapy room as meaningful and rich information that provides clues to dynamics which may repeat themselves in your day-to-day life. I work primarily from a psychodynamic frame and integrate other approaches thoughtfully and intentionally as needed.

Is your transition to motherhood not what you expected? Have you been feeling constantly overwhelmed, agitated, or finding it difficult to connect with your baby or partner? Are you experiencing anxious thoughts and fears about caring for your baby? Or maybe your birth wasn't the empowering experience you imagined. Maybe it left you feeling scared and out of control and you have been blaming yourself for your experience. If "yes" to any of the above, you may be experiencing postpartum depression, postpartum anxiety, or birth trauma. You do not have to walk through these feelings alone!

Female Therapists

Does it matter what gender my therapist is?

In general, this is not an important factor, as there is no relationship between a therapist’s gender and their efficacy. Some clients, however, prefer to see therapists of a particular gender, whether due to their own past experiences with men and women, or ingrained beliefs about how people of different genders think and behave. Exploring the roots of such preferences and considering what one wants to address in therapy can help someone determine whether their therapist’s gender truly matters to them.

Should I see a female therapist?

Many people—not just women—prefer to see a female therapist, either because they believe that a woman will be able to relate to their specific challenges (for example, sexism in the workplace) or because they imagine feeling more comfortable disclosing sensitive information to a woman. Such beliefs may not turn out to be accurate, however, and adhering too rigidly to a gender preference can at times hinder a client from finding the best therapeutic match.

Do therapists get specific training to help with women’s concerns?

Therapists are trained to provide care to clients of any gender. However, some therapists—both men and women—may pursue additional training in feminist therapy, gender-specific issues, or women’s mental health. Female clients may wish to ask prospective therapists whether they have received specific training in the client’s primary area(s) of concern, or whether they have worked extensively with women on issues similar to their own.

How can I inquire about a therapist’s experience in treating women?

It’s OK—even encouraged!—to ask a therapist directly whether and how often they have treated women in the past, or whether they have treated women dealing with the client’s most prominent concern(s). Competent therapists will be happy to share their educational background, preferred treatment modalities, and prior client experience to help an individual find the therapist best suited to their needs.
