I specialize in women's issues such as perinatal mood and anxiety disorders and neurodivergence and have additional training in eating disorders and holistic health.
When it seems that there is an overabundance of books, blogs and information it can feel overwhelming to know where to begin when you are experiencing challenges. It takes courage to seek guidance and it is my goal to provide a safe environment to collaboratively work through whatever is preventing you from living the life you dream of. I will be your partner in this journey toward healing and wellness.

Areas of particular interest include: dual diagnosis, depression, anxiety, life transitions, trauma and PTSD, domestic violence, domestic abuse, relationship issues, self-esteem, codependency issues, and working with women's issues .
Working in a variety of social work and mental health settings over the past 15 years, has taught me to implement a straightforward, nonjudgmental, compassionate, and empathetic approach, when working with people. As an interactive therapist, I offer a safe and supportive environment, where I encourage people to utilize their voice, not only to build on their own strengths and resiliency, but to collaborate together to address their needs and goals during this process.

Life can feel really overwhelming sometimes. Whether you are struggling with infertility, women's issues , career stress, big life transitions, college/grad school struggles, or chronic pain, sometimes you just need a neutral person to talk to. Our family and friends can mean well and can offer great support, but there are some periods in our lives where we need help building coping skills and strategies to become mangers of our thoughts, not reactors.

*Not currently accepting new clients* At times in our lives, each of us need objective support. I have guided and witnessed others as a mental health professional for the past 14 years, and throughout my life as a family member, a friend, and a teacher. I believe that at our core, each of us has the resources we need, though they may be difficult to access. Listening to and appreciating each person in a respectful way is at the heart of how I approach life. I also find humor, practicality and creativity to be strengths I offer.

**NO OPENINGS AT THIS TIME** I enjoy helping clients create rich and meaningful lives. I specialize in individual therapy with adults and adolescents struggling with anxiety, depression, addiction, trauma, eating disorders, adjustments to life stressors, and more. I also love working with artists and creative people. I primarily use the Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT) Model with clients, an evidence-based model that stems out of cognitive behavioral therapy, and the idea that our thoughts, emotions and behaviors are closely connected. Clients learn many skills related to mindfulness, radical acceptance, and self-compassion.

*NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS - WAITLIST ONLY* Poet Anne Sexton wrote, "That the worst of anyone Can be, finally, An accident of hope." If you're here, you probably feel at your worst. Maybe a traumatic event has left you feeling broken and lost. Perhaps what you've been doing to cope just isn't working anymore, or is doing more harm than good. Whatever your reasons, I'm glad you're thinking about therapy. This process can be scary and takes hard work, and I welcome anyone courageous enough to seek out hope.
