If you think that you have a child or teen that could benefit from outdoor therapy, please don't hesitate to reach out! If nature is not your thing or the weather is not cooperating, I do offer in office or virtual sessions.
Welcome! I have been working in various therapeutic settings with children and teens for nearly a decade to help them overcome family, relational, school and life challenges so they can find more joy and grow as an individual. I have found that many kids and teens benefit from movement while engaging in therapy so I incorporate outdoor activities while using traditional therapy techniques. I have had extensive training and experience in outdoor recreation such as hiking, paddling, snowshoeing, and more which I now use to help my clients grow and heal in accessible locations within Middlesex County.

Sometimes, life deals us an awful hand with so many wounds and hurts that we have no idea how we'll get through. We feel sad, anxious, overwhelmed, angry, depressed and don't know how to move forward with that emotion. We find ourselves stuck in the same patterns and don't know how to change them. Frequently, our relationships struggle as a result. I believe in becoming whole and healing from these wounds and hurts. I believe each person has innate characteristics that make this healing possible. In therapy, our goal is to remove these constraints that prevent you from accessing your core Self and create a life that feels lighter.

Finding a new therapist can be hard. I believe that the most important part of therapy is having the right fit with the right therapist. In order to be open to the process you have to feel comfortable with your provider. Therapy should be a tool to find personal strengths and develop new resources. Therapy is a good place to start looking at where you might be stuck and searching for new strategies to add to your life. I hope that I can be a part of your journey.

What type of Old Saybrook mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Old Saybrook?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
