Feeling overwhelmed? Things don't make sense and you've lost perspective? Sometimes it is a big reason - such as divorce, medical issues, chronic pain, weight management, financial stress or job loss. Or sometimes we just realize that we are not where we want to be in our life and not sure how we got there or how to get back. This can result in anxiety, depressed mood and sadness. It's time to start putting the pieces together - changing bad behaviors and replacing them with healthy ones, being accountable and responsible for our own lives.
Searching for a therapist is a brave first step, so let me be the first to say welcome to your mental health journey! Life doesn’t come with a roadmap, and you might be feeling lost. Maybe depression or anxiety knocked you off of your path, or low self-esteem led you in the wrong direction. Therapy can illuminate the darkness you feel, and as your therapist I’m ready to make the journey to healing with you.
LOOKING FOR GROUP INTEREST. As I am semi-retired, I am limiting my practice to group work for women with post-traumatic stress disorder as a result of childhood abuse (physical, sexual, emotional). I have been leading survivor groups for the past 30 years and have seen such powerful positive changes and growth that it has become my most successful form of working with PTSD recovery. If interested email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I am interviewing now for a Fall group. I have 2 spots left . My groups are small and confidential. Group members often become lifelong friends. Willow my resident therapy dog will make you feel welcome.
Life is a journey! The past few years have been a whirlwind of emotion with so much loss, change, and uncertainty. Finding a soft place to land and making sense of life and so many unknown feelings is not easy. Awareness of what we need is the first step, and I hope that I am able to be present, listen and guide you back to your chosen path. It is never to late to restart or go in a different direction and no one needs to do that alone.
Counseling is a unique process where you feel accepted and safe enough be yourself, create goals, and work together with your therapist to achieve them. As your therapist I provide a relaxed environment for you to share whatever you chose to share. I will listen, empathize, and provide direction so that you can reduce symptoms, reduce stress, and grow as an individual. I am creative and comforting and will be objective and non-judgmental so that we can work on whatever brings you to therapy.

You are the expert on your experience. My job is to walk beside you when it feels too hard to bear alone. I am passionate about helping people in transition, this includes adults dealing with family, loss, and job changes; older adults navigating their next stage of life; and adolescents because at that age every morning is a new transition. I treat a range of diagnoses, but have a special place in my heart for anxiety disorders. I also have extensive experience working with individuals living with chronic mental health needs.
Life might feel entirely out of your control. Maybe the same thoughts are nagging at you, stuck in an agonizing loop of anxiety about job changes, relationship difficulties, body-image concerns, you name it – it’s all too much. Chronic stress, depression, and anxiety can lead to this feeling of “stuck-ness” that's really hard to handle. Finally, you’ve decided it’s time to prioritize yourself and work through personal challenges that have been on the back-burner for years. You’re ready to breathe again and have that “inner peace” that got lost along the way. It's time to get un-stuck!
Ideal match for clients experiencing symptoms of depression, anxiety, OCD as well as dealing with life stressors such as major life changes, job loss, interpersonal stressors, parenting or caring for older family members. My focus is on providing validation, normalizing experiences for clients and providing coaching on effective problem solving or coping strategies.
**WAIT LIST OPEN FOR ADULTS - EMAIL IS BEST WAY TO REACH ME!** Our journey on this Earth is filled with beautiful moments and experiences, and yet, it also seemingly encompasses the exact opposite. Persevering through the challenges in order to seek that beauty again is often difficult and overwhelming. My purpose is to support and guide you through it. I believe life is about balance and discovering the harmony within it. Together we can build a renewed sense of hope, increase your insight to better understand yourself and the world around you, nurture change, and ultimately get back to enjoying the journey we have in this life.
I am here to listen, I want to learn about you and what you bring to the table. Clients I often work with are looking for a therapist to assist with theraputic self expression, Art Therapy, LGBTQIA+ issues and resources, Gender affirmation, Grief processing, Trauma treatment, Cognitive Behavioral Therapies and coping skill development. My clients often struggle with anxiety, depression, self harm, communication or relationship issues, disorganized thinking, or just finding and expressing their authentic selves.
Life brings about many challenges and sometimes those obstacles can bring about stress and emotional pain. I believe in meeting people where they're at and assisting them with finding the right track for themselves. Therapy is a form of teamwork that creates goals, builds strengths and provides a safe space to dig into the struggles and discover healthy ways to work through them. I provide the empathic listening that many find is lacking in their lives.
Each therapist/client relationship is different and as your therapist, I will work with you to develop a therapeutic relationship that is best suited to meet your unique needs. Whether you are going through a difficult transition, are living with significant depression or anxiety, or would just like to make some healthy lifestyle changes, the opportunity to share your feelings in a private, therapeutic setting can be helpful.
I work with adults struggling with depression, anxiety, addiction, sexuality and relationship issues and other major life adjustments. I offer a compassionate and understanding atmosphere in which clients may take control of their lives and move toward a greater sense of satisfaction. I utilize mindfulness based cognitive behavioral therapy, among others, to individually support clients in boosting the self-confidence needed to overcome life's many obstacles. I offer support for those working on life day-by-day, and help others achieve their long-term goals by creating paths to get there, and enjoying the journey along the way.
No MassHealth Plans. Life the last couple of years has been tough, particularly for our kids and teens. Struggling with adolescence, school, and a pandemic can be exhausting, between peer pressure, getting work done and trying to keep grades up, and family expectations. All of these challenges teens face can contribute to their self-esteem, anxiety, and depression. I want to help my clients to better cope with and recognize emotions; identify connections between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors; and improve relationships in order to live a more peaceful, enjoyable, and meaningful life.
Let's find the real you. Trauma impacts everyone differently, but with the right support, anyone can heal... including you.

Your journey will not be easy, but at least you'll have our support while you're on it. I specialize in working with individuals ages 18+ who are struggling with trauma, LGBTQIA+ issues, identity, adjustment problems, grief, self injury/suicidality, and anxiety. Gender affirming care and therapy related to gender affirming medical treatments available!
If you give people tools, and they use their natural abilities and their curiosity, they will develop things in ways that will surprise you very much beyond what you might have expected. - Bill Gates. As a practitioner, it is my belief to provide tools and support to help you along your own personal journey to discover and create your best self. Self compassion, assertiveness, and positive healthy lifestyle habits are just a few tools that I focus on in order to lead to increase joy and better life satisfaction.
