I work with individuals and couples navigating a variety of concerns. I deeply believe in the transformative power of being truly seen and heard, to better understand how you move through your world and in relationship with loved ones.  My approach is both warm and direct; my goal is to help people hold space for the discomfort of growth, the pain of vulnerability, and the hopefulness of change.

Do you find yourself being attracted to romantic partners that leave you feeling unsupported and unloved, smothered and engulfed, or with whom you lose your identity? I have been very successful in assisting people with identifying patterns of behavior, attachment style, and communication issues that may have become ingrained and habitual. And then work to develop new ways of relating that are more effective and satisfying, and increase one's ability to be securely attached, comfortable with both intimacy and individuation in healthier relationships. Do you struggle with anxiety or depression, low self-esteem or lack of assertiveness?

Life is constantly changing. Navigating these changes can be incredibly difficult. Chances are at some point most us will experience difficulties in our careers, intimate relationships, family relationships, and in relation to ourselves. Many of us, at some point, will face the impact of trauma, loss, addiction, anxiety, or depression. It is normal to feel overwhelmed, stuck, and helpless at times to deal with the mosaic of challenges life presents us. These challenges get in the way of living the life we want. If you're ready to take your life back you've come to the right place. Longmeadow-Counseling.com

What are your values? How can we work together to add more to your life consistent with those values? As a solo practitioner, I deliberately maintain a small client caseload to ensure I am fully able to attend to my clients’ needs. My areas of expertise include treatment of depression, anxiety, and interpersonal difficulties in adults.

Life can be overwhelming with its many challenges and stressors. Maybe old patterns that were once adaptive are no longer effective. Maybe you are feeling stuck and disconnected from yourself and others. Maybe you are experiencing a difficult loss or life transition and are struggling with feelings of depression and anxiety. Maybe you just want to feel that you are the author of your own story. It is important to know that you can change the trajectory of your life at any time but you must have a willingness to do the work.

We all endure suffering at some point in our lives. Therapy is a place to reflect on ourselves and what we can learn from this suffering. Whether it is ruminating on the past, struggling to cope with present stressors, or planning for the future, it only makes us human to feel vulnerable at these times. As your therapist, I look forward to hearing your story and working together to reach your goals.

Not Currently Accepting Clients. I believe in the inherent value of each and every individual who chooses to seek out therapy and especially in the acceptance of those populations who have historically been marginalized or mistreated. I help individuals find understanding in who they are and to find hope for their future. Life can be very difficult at times and especially when we experience trauma, anxiety and depression. If you are looking for a better way to handle stress at work or with your family, it is imperative to find someone with the right training and experience.

You are feeling drained. As a professional woman, you are used to having a full plate and juggling things. I am guessing your plate is now a platter and things are falling onto the floor, including your resilience. You want help but you don't want to burden others. Also, you are not even sure exactly what kind of help you need. You just know what you are doing isn't working and you want to get back to yourself. I truly get it...and I can help. Check out my website and learn more about me. If it resonates, then schedule a consultation to ensure we are a good fit. I know that this is tiring; you do not have to do this alone.

My intention is to help people discover lasting pathways to feel better. I will bring my warmth, heart, experience and presence to our unique collaboration as we focus on how you want to feel in your life. I practice a body-centered approach to counseling. Woven through our talking together will be periods of mindfulness and tuning in as a way to deepen awareness, growth and healing. When we have the support we need--we feel more freedom to be ourselves emotionally, intellectually, physically and spiritually. As distortions release--we naturally heal, improve our relationships, and make authentic life choices that feel good.

10/10/22: Telehealth clients only. Morning availability. I am a board-certified art therapist and licensed professional counselor with 14 years of clinical experience. I specialize in early childhood mental health but work with all ages. I trust in the wisdom of clients' abilities to explore their own themes, symbols, and stories. Because we all develop our senses of self and safety within the context of early relationships, family/relationship-based work is essential. My art/play therapy practice is trauma and Polyvagal Theory-informed. My approach is flexible, solution-focused, and non-judgmental.

Attachment-based Therapists

Is attachment-based therapy the same as attachment therapy?

Attachment-based therapy may be confused with what is called “attachment therapy” (sometimes called “holding therapy”), a discredited and dangerous approach to treating children with attachment disorders, autism, or other mental health concerns. Attachment therapy—not attachment-based therapy—may involve restraining a child, forcing eye contact, and other coercive or abusive techniques. None of these practices are used in attachment-based therapy and the two modalities are in no way related.

What should I expect from attachment-based therapy?

Attachment-based therapy is based on attachment theory, which posits that children’s early relationships with their caregivers strongly influence their ability to navigate the world later in life. Thus, adults who seek attachment-based therapy should expect to deeply explore their childhood, identifying the dynamics or experiences that disrupted their attachment and the steps necessary to overcome challenges that arose as a result. Parents and children should expect to explore the possible factors that disrupted the parent-child relationship and work toward restoring trust and connection.

How long does attachment-based therapy last?

Certain forms of attachment-based therapy, especially those designed for parents and children, last for a set number of sessions; for example, Attachment and Biobehavioral Catch-Up, a specific attachment-based approach for young children who have undergone early adversity, unfolds over 10 one-hour sessions. When attachment-based therapy is practiced on adults or combined with other modalities, it may not last a specific length of time; clients may wish to ask prospective therapists how long they expect treatment to take.

Does attachment-based therapy work?

Most of the research on attachment-based therapy focuses on children and adolescents. Some of this research shows a positive effect, especially for attachment-based family therapy (ABFT). Other studies, however, have found that attachment-based therapy is no more effective than other approaches to childhood depression, anxiety, or suicidality. Less is known about the therapy’s efficacy on adult populations.
