I work with adults who want to live happier and more connected lives. Clients see me to alleviate anxiety and depression, navigate relationships, and adjust to transitions. As a former executive with an MBA, I have a particular interest in supporting women through career or relationship transitions, and guiding the balance of personal responsibilities. I see therapy not as a lifelong commitment but a helpful tool to develop insight through a collaborative, empathic, and supportive process. Clients leave energized and able to articulate, clarify, and achieve their goals.

With any and all presenting concerns, I provide a warm, non-judgmental environment. I have an integrative approach, with a particular focus on motivational enhancement, insight oriented exploration of past experiences, and when appropriate, specific tools and coping strategies. I use a number of research backed cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) protocols, which are proven to be effective in treating anxiety and depression. However, I am careful to use these methods in the context of a client centered and welcoming environment which accounts for an individual's particular needs, experiences, and readiness to change.

Healing happens best in relationships, and therapy is no different. Whether it’s manifesting as anxiety, depression, or issues in relationship with self or others, traumas and stressors in the past and present can disconnect us from our ability to access joy, connection, purpose, and pleasure. In therapy, I will collaborate with you to create a safe and strong relationship where you can explore and process your thoughts, feelings, emotions, and experiences in order to move forward.

Whether you are seeking support for ongoing internal struggles, acute life challenges, persistent relationship issues, or looking to find more calm and balance in your life, therapy is often a crucial piece of healing and growth. You are not alone if you regularly find yourself stuck in patterns that lead to anxiety, self-destructive choices, hopelessness, or unhelpful outcomes. I know it can be overwhelming in thinking about where to even begin and I hope you know that none of these situations need to be dealt with in isolation and, often, cannot be. We all need, and deserve, support on our journey. A trusted relationship is key.

The decision to start therapy can be complex. My approach to our work is informed by a psychodynamic perspective, although I also incorporate cognitive techniques, to help us understand how the past continues to effect the present. I prioritize creating a safe atmosphere in which to explore the thoughts and feelings that continue to challenge you. Our work together may be trying at times, but there is also room for humor and liveliness. My extensive training at Mass General Hospital in conjunction with my fellowship- and continued training- at The Boston Psychoanalytic Society Institute are the foundations upon which I work.

The need to normalize therapeutic support, including all forms of mental illness, is ever-present today. Society does not always advocate for the individual nor does it provide freedom for the individual to advocate for themselves. Therapy can take many different forms for each individual, but it should always feel like a space to cultivate that relationship with self, discover a new kind of balance, and gain support through your experience.
