My personal and professional experience taught me that sometimes life challenges can overwhelm us and prevent us from experiencing happiness and wellbeing. Reaching out for help may not be easy. Yet, true attentive and non-judgmental connection with another person can bring healing and understanding to our pain. In my practice I use vast array of therapeutic approaches and provide a safe environment allowing positive change through self-exploration.

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Registered Art Therapist. Over the course of my career I have worked in a variety of settings which has helped me learn to adapt my methods to best suit each individual, couple or family I work with. I believe in meeting a client where they are while also challenging them to take positive steps toward change and growth. Be it a gentle nudge or a more assertive push I believe it helps create a shift for those I see.
As a therapist with 25 years of experience working with children, adolescents and adults, and owner of North Andover Counseling Professionals, I bring a non-judgmental and down to earth approach to therapy. I believe in a strengths-based, collaborative approach where a person can feel safe to be present in the therapeutic process.

I offer a safe environment that provides a supportive place for children and adults to begin to build skills to navigate life challenges after life altering events.
Some days are better than others, but there’s an ongoing theme in your life of feeling discouraged and overwhelmed. You find yourself frequently worrying about how you will stay on top of all your responsibilities, and sometimes worrying about things that you know are out of your hands. When you stop and reflect, you know you used to have real closeness with your partner or other important people in your life, but it’s getting harder to remember that actual feeling. You’re drained by how much you seem to give of yourself but don’t feel hopeful about anything changing soon.
Sometimes it all just feels too much. Life can be overwhelming, and it can be difficult to face at times. I’m here to listen, reflect, and help you navigate through your struggles to help you find healing. I work with young adults, older adults, and families who are looking for counseling and support. My goal is to create a safe therapeutic environment where you feel comfortable enough to process the difficulties you've been struggling with. In session, you are in a judgement free zone, and it's a place you should feel like you can be your truest genuine self.
I feel that finding a therapist you 'click with' is one of the most important factors in this search. Seeking help can be hard! But if life is like a puzzle, therapy can help make sense of the pieces - whether it be adjusting to something new, figuring out who you are, or how to manage the world around you. While this process may be daunting - it can also be fascinating, empowering, and, ultimately, healing.
Are you looking for an easy to talk to Therapist? Do you want to feel comfortable talking about the things that are bothering you? I have over 20 years experience helping people work through changes and challenges in life. At this time I am providing Tele/Video Sessions only. I accept Blue Cross of Massachusetts, Medicare, Optum Behavioral Health, Allways, Beacon and Private Pay.
I've been in practice for 20 years and have worked in a variety of settings. My experience has taught me that the most effective way to address issues is to first identify strengths and use those to address weaknesses. I believe that people are driven toward peace and happiness and need to be empowered by identifying goals and creating a plan for achieving those goals. Sessions are always client driven; your treatment must be about your agenda and no one else's.
My primary goal as a therapist is to help individuals, couples and families develop healthy relationships; being empowered in meeting their full potential. I’m a licensed mental health counselor, with over 10 years of experience as an outpatient therapist, along with five additional years related to the mental health field.
From the outside you appear put together and accomplished, yet inside you don’t always feel that way. Sometimes you worry about things you can't control, create plans for the possible “what ifs” down the road, and wonder if others will discover that you don’t actually have it all figured out. You can’t calm your mind or find a healthy balance, and it’s getting in the way of your ambitions. You’ve tried managing on your own yet feel stuck. We can work together to harness your inner strengths while mending the parts that make life feel challenging.

I am a cognitive-behavioral therapist specializing in anxiety, mood disorders, grief, and trauma. While using an evidence-based, theory-driven approach, I acknowledge that each person is unique; therefore, I tailor the session with the intent to help each person gain clarity and insight into his/her individual situation.
As a clinical psychologist I have worked with folks of all ages and have experience helping people with a range of issues including: anxiety, depression, identity development, stress, relationship issues, grief and loss and life transitions. I utilize a collaborative and flexible approach grounded in a psychodynamic (influence of past on the present) framework.
Welcome! I am a licensed mental health counselor who has worked in the field for approximately 7.5 years. I work primarily with adolescents, young adults and adults on a variety of issues; trauma, anxiety, depression, substance use and relationship issues. I am trained in multiple evidenced based practices (TFCBT, ACRA, and YCBT). In addition to my work in the mental health field, I am a registered yoga teacher and incorporate yoga and mindfulness into my clinical work at times.

Healing is a word to describe my approach as a psychotherapist. Throughout my 24 years of experience, I believe that both our mind and our body need to be connected in order to achieve balance. Respect, acceptance, and appropriate humor are principles of my practice. I collaborate well with clients who are struggling with a variety of issues like anxiety, depression, and related life stressors. I have a strong background treating individuals with trauma history.
Life can be difficult. Asking for help can be really difficult. Finding the "right" therapist can be downright overwhelming. I am not your "typical" therapist. I don't believe in cookie-cutter approaches. I believe that each person should be treated as an individual and that each individual has their own set of needs. I work together with my clients to figure out what those needs are while building trusting, judgement-free relationships and through the use of humor whenever possible. PLEASE NOTE: PRACTICE IS CURRENTLY FULL.
