I am dedicated to helping my clients build bridges to a healthier, happier life. Are you going through a big change? Life calls us into constant change. Whether planned and joyful or unexpected and grief filled: changes in relationships; parenting; or career - they take their toll on each of us. Healing through grieving, stretching, adjusting, and growing can be blocked when you feel overwhelming emotions, when you are fearful and avoidant of what is to come, and when you simply don't know how to move ahead. I listen to, support, and teach my clients to help reduce anxiety, depression, and stress that comes with life transitions.

My therapeutic approach is based on the understanding that you are a unique individual and that my job is not to “give advice” or “tell you how to live your life’” but instead, using evidence based approaches I help you address unresolved trauma, anxiety and depression and other “challenges” so that you can see the path that your meant to take.
My ideal client is the individual who is ready to both ask for and accept help. Change can be hard and it’s ok if you’re not ready. If however, you are ready and you’re looking for a safe place to better understand your challenges and how to overcome them, I can help.

I am a therapist because I believe we should be creators of our lives and not consumers of others' expectations. Working collaboratively, you and I will explore where you feel stuck and make moves toward a more fulfilling life. As an artist and a queer feminist, I am a great therapeutic fit for folks who want to build an authentic life amidst the confines of the dominant social order. I love working with adults as they navigate life changes in relationships (broadly defined!), career, and family; and I love working with teens as they navigate school, neurodivergent diagnoses, and identity.

Reach out if you’d like to explore how our work might make you feel better about yourself, your relationships, and your career so that we can ultimately get you closer to the emotionally authentic and fulfilling life everyone deserves.
I work with adults who are trying to figure how to feel better about themselves and their most important personal and professional relationships. Building resilience, insight and meaningful connections starts with making sense of your values, core beliefs, and your goals for yourself. Because my background includes experience in nonprofit and corporate environments, I’m also attuned to the nuances of work relationships, and how issues like communication breakdowns, lack of confidence, and burnout impact our emotional state and our relationships with ourselves.

I have experience with individuals struggling with loss - a job, a relationship, a death, empty nest, or retirement.
Hello. I am a licensed clinical social worker in Boston, MA with over 20 years of experience in both clinical settings and private practice. My style is flexible and includes elements of psychodynamic therapy as well as solution focused techniques and cognitive behavioral therapy. People often find their way to treatment due to a life transition or circumstance in which the usual methods of coping no longer are effective. Finding a connection with a supportive experienced therapist can be invaluable in not only managing the transition but finding greater meaning going forward.

Many people come to therapy feeling stuck or trapped in patterns of behavior or relating, and often hopeless about freeing themselves from these patterns. I believe that therapy is a collaborative process and that we, therapist and client, can work together to become aware of these recurring themes, restore hope, and formulate a pathway to alter whatever is holding you back from having the life you want. This work involves sifting through the past to create the relationships, career, and life clients seek.
