I am a licensed therapist and a certified life coach for girls in high school, college, and in their 20's. I help young women by providing them the space and the tools they need to truly understand themselves; necessities they often lack. From this foundation they begin to negotiate the complexities of relationships and other essential life skills.My approach makes the transition from adolescence to adulthood seem more manageable. Together, we develop skills to overcome the challenges which often plague young women, and unpack anxieties in a mindful safe way so that they can succeed in spite of them.

I received my Masters in Social Work from Boston College in 1995. I specialize in helping clients who present with depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship challenges, and environmental stressors. I work with clients who are LGBTQ+, straight, or cisgender. I strive to provide a safe environment in which clients can explore problematic areas which inhibit personal growth, work toward creating either change or acceptance regarding feelings, thoughts, and behaviors, and to identify patterns that are no longer useful. I derive deep fulfillment as a therapist, and consider it a privilege to be a trusted participant on one's journey.

Our progress and personal development is often riddled with overwhelming challenges that can be difficult to navigate. Sometimes it’s helpful to have someone be with you while you’re trying to move forward. Everyone reaches out for help for different reasons; maybe you’re interested in gaining a deeper understanding of yourself, or finding yourself wondering if you can move on from an unbearable heartbreak. Therapy is truly a collaborative effort, and it is my hope that we can cultivate a space that encourages your personal growth, forward direction, and reflective equilibrium.

There are many reasons why we might find ourselves looking for a therapist. Perhaps there is a change in our lives and we need support managing it. Maybe we need help finding new strategies and tools for handling overwhelming emotions. Sometimes we might want to grow as a person or make a change, but need support or new skills to get there. Whatever your reason, it’s valid and important.   I work with individual adults, kids, as well as couples who want the help of an outside partner to grow, learn, thrive, and live their best lives.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your zip code.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counselor?

Therapists, psychologists, and counselors are all licensed mental health professionals. In the US, psychologists have earned a doctoral degree. The terms “therapist” and “counselor” are used somewhat interchangeably, but generally therapists offer longer-term, mental health care, while counselors offer shorter-term care that may focus on one domain, such as marriage, career, or academic challenges.

What type of therapist is right for me?

Clients should consider factors such as insurance coverage and their primary reason(s) for seeking therapy to determine the type of professional best suited to their needs. Someone struggling with mental health challenges such as depression or anxiety, for example, may wish to seek out a clinical psychologist or therapist, while someone navigating career obstacles or marital upheaval may benefit from seeing a counselor who can offer short-term, targeted support.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

The Psychology Today directory lists providers who offer legitimate mental health services to the public, including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and counselors. Many have been licensed by the country or state where they practice; providers whose license or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Some clinicians or organizations provide services for which their state or country does not offer licenses, such as pastoral counseling. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.
