I specialize in treating perfectionism, depression/anxiety, emotional abuse, and trauma .
Sometimes it's hard to believe we're "good enough". It’s easier to count the things "wrong" with us, a litany of flaws glued to our identity all day, weighing us down. What is the nature of your self-talk? We all carry an inner story, formed gradually as we go through life. For some, that story is negative, maladaptive, or untrue. I provide a compassionate space where clients can lay down their anxieties, grief, and pain, as they pursue a path to healing. I work with clients to write a new inner narrative about themselves, rooted in self-compassion. Mindfulness and psycho-education assist in coping along the way.

As an experienced therapist helping people heal from anxiety, depression, and trauma , I know it reaching out can be hard.
You work hard to keep it all together on the outside, but people can't see that inside you're exhausted and shaky. It's true you've achieved a lot in your life, but it doesn't stop your thoughts from spinning. You wish you could stop feeling you don’t measure up, don't belong. It may even feel like depression, anxiety, and trauma have been a part of your life for as long as you can remember. One thing is sure: you’re ready for relief. You’re ready to enjoy close, lasting relationships without your past interfering. You’re ready to stop pushing yourself so hard to achieve and let yourself enjoy what you've earned. I can help.

Although I work with a variety of issues, I specialize treating young adults, adoptees, and survivors of trauma /complex PTSD .
I love what I do. As a therapist, I have the privilege of walking with people during a part of their life journey, and it’s incredibly rewarding. I work well with people who desire greater self-knowing. My clients are curious and self-reflective, but have experienced things that leave them feeling stuck, frustrated and uncertain. During sessions we may encounter hard-to-feel emotions like grief, anger, and shame. Together we sort through the mess, look at it with kindness, and make meaning. Clients leave therapy with me having cultivated deeper clarity and self-compassion, and feel able to make empowered choices in their lives.

I have worked in community mental health for over 10 years and have experience with a myriad of stressors including (not limited to) life transitions, relational problems, trauma (complex trauma ), depression/anxiety, and grief.
Do you feel you've been living just to get through the days? Or that your past experiences in life are holding you back from what you'd really like to be doing? I may be able to help. Coming to therapy can be one of the most difficult decisions one chooses to make. Whether it's your first time, fifth time, or transitioning from a long history with a previous therapist, change can be very hard. Feeling the right connection is an important building block of treatment success.

I have extensive experience dealing with issues of relationship conflict, depression, anxiety, addiction, trauma , grief & loss, and spirituality.
I am licensed to practice in MA, NY, RI, and ME, and am available for virtual sessions. I use an integrative approach to psychotherapy, combining insight and skills-based frameworks. I help clients understand how their past experiences and relationships shaped and influence who they are now and how they experience the world (insight), and I help them develop tools for addressing current life situations and for putting that insight to work in moving their lives in the direction they want (skills-based). This approach helps clients link the past which formed them, the present they are living in, and the future they wish to experience.

My particular areas of interest include surviving the trauma of interpersonal, sexual, and/or political violence; negotiating a lesbian/ gay/ bisexual/ transgender/ queer identity; and the impact of stigma on mental and physical well-being.
I believe there are many ways to bring about change, and work collaboratively with clients to identify the ways that will work best for them. My approach to therapy is integrative, incorporating relational, psychodynamic and strengths-based perspectives, as well as cognitive-behavioral and mindfulness-based interventions. I am committed to understanding clients within their cultural contexts, and pay close attention to the impact of ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation and, when relevant, religion on development and identity.

My approach to therapy is grounded in Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapy and other trauma -informed interventions like Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).
I believe strongly in the resilience of people, and that a healthy therapeutic relationship can promote trust, healing, and personal growth. I believe that successful therapy is predicated on having a strong therapeutic alliance; the connection and collaborative relationship between the client and therapist. Taking a strength-based perspective, I listen deeply and reflectively to sustain a non-judgmental and safe environment. I am passionate about helping clients fully process past experiences and thrive in relationships with themselves, others, and the world around them.
