I welcome individuals who are gay, lesbian, or bisexual , including those questioning or seeking help adjusting to leading more open, fulfilled lives with however they identify themselves.
I collaborate with adults as they heal from trauma, anxiety, loss, depression or any number of matters leaving them feeling ineffective. I will join with you to identify and transform painful obstacles, arising from past and/or present challenges, which hinder you from making healthy changes. Drawing from Internal Family Systems (IFS) Therapy and making frequent use of EMDR, we will journey together to access your core nature, the Self, more spontaneously. This leads to clarity and calm over challenges you face, resulting in heightened creativity and effectiveness with problem solving, relationship building, and goal attainment.

Looking within oneself to fully understand your situation is the best way to move forward, because it helps you develop a comprehensive plan and manageable, achievable goals. I am a licensed clinical social worker with more than 15 years of experience working with couples, families, adolescents, adults, and children. I graduated from Simmons College of Social Work with a master's degree, and enthusiastically work to help my clients make lasting, visible changes. Together, we can uncover new ways to make meaningful change, by identifying weaknesses and strengths and developing a plan.

Therapy looks different for everyone. Maybe you're feeling stuck, and need some guidance in your career, relationships, or personal growth. Or maybe life has thrown you a curveball that has left you spinning and you want to learn how to cope. Or perhaps you're searching for a place - one hour a week - to be completely and authentically yourself. Whatever it is, let's talk.

Hello and congratulations to you for starting on your journey to a better, more fulfilling life by participating in therapy. It takes real courage to admit that you might need some outside help. I understand, not just from a professional stand point but from a personal stand point as well. I went back to school in my late 30s, after many turbulent years that included some really rough times (including divorce, homelessness, etc.). I'm so very honored to be a therapist these days and to have the chance to relate to my clients in a very humanistic way.

I provide therapy that is interpersonally oriented, affirming and culturally responsive. Together, we will work to set goals and build coping skills that will help you navigate the changes and challenges of life.

Note: Email is the easiest way to reach me for faster reply. I am a therapist who is passionate about helping my clients regain (or maybe gain for the first time) a true sense of self. Addiction, old behavior patterns, unhealthy coping mechanisms... they can all derail us from discovering our authenticity and our purpose in life. I have experience in helping clients of all backgrounds learn to take power back from alcohol and substance use disorders, behavioral addictions, anxiety disorders, and depression.

I view therapy as a conversation that puts you in touch with your inner voice and guides you in using its wisdom to make changes. I am warm and down to earth, and I use humor to create a space where you can be yourself while exploring new possibilities for your life. I offer a culturally-sensitive and collaborative approach to helping clients find joy and meaning in their lives. This can happen by navigating a life transition, resolving a relationship conflict, healing from trauma, or managing depression, stress, or anxiety.

"Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness." - Maya Angelou. In music therapy, I have worked with many people who do not come from a background in music learning yet every person has an intuitive approach to using music therapeutically for their health and wellbeing. I believe that music is an incredible container for human emotion and bio-psycho-social transformation. In the therapy setting, music offers abundant metaphors and parallel process to the client's goals and personal journey.

¡Hablo español! I work with people who are navigating big life changes or stresses and are wondering if they can get through it. Change is more difficult when you have a mental health diagnosis, difficult experiences in your past, or are adapting to a new culture. This kind of stress makes everything harder and can overwhelm all the skills you have! But there are skills and experiences you can both learn and strengthen so that you can navigate whatever life brings more effectively. I have found that I work well with people who might have been using mental health services for a long time but have not experienced any improvement.

Over 30 years of experience has taught me a lot about how to best help the people I see. In my work, I try to listen, with empathy and respect, and to understand what has happened that has brought someone to my office. Clients often find that being able to talk freely in a safe, confidential relationship gives them relief and helps them to develop a clearer sense of the challenges they are facing. Together, the client and I identify the important stressors and conflicts and work on developing strengths and strategies to help cope better.

I am here to foster a supportive and welcoming space for you to explore your process of healing, and to step into the brilliance of and belonging with all that you are. I offer an integrative approach, weaving a compassionate, creative, collaborative, intuitive, embodied, trauma-informed, and skill-based approach to the work. My view of holistic is one that considers the impact of systems on one's self, as well as the use of modalities that support an access to wholeness, and a lens of understanding the mind-body network in order to restore balance.

Most people could benefit from therapy. I've worked with an enormous range of people, from those looking to make subtle shifts and build insight to those struggling to manage profound, chronic difficulties. I think there's a potency in the therapeutic relationship that draws things to the surface and something penetrating and lasting that can come from taking on the hard things in life with another curious and compassionate person. My aim is to help you explore the impact your past and present have on your well-being and relationships and loosen the grip of old patterns and dynamics that feel rigid and/or chaotic.

Beneficial therapy is founded upon a strong relationship between the therapist and the client. There is something healing about connecting with another person, about being seen, about feeling understood. With each of my clients, I work to create a warm relationship where they know they will be met with respect and empathy. I also recognize that for some people, especially people with non-dominant cultural identities, mental health care has not always felt welcoming. With that in mind, I work to provide a space where everyone can experience a sense of belonging and feel safe being their full selves. I am LGBTQIA+ affirming.

What type of Salem mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Salem?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
