I work with adults who are seeking support with life stressors and navigating challenging situations at home and at work. Psychotherapy is my second career, and I combine my clinical training with my work experience in both non-profit and corporate settings. I welcome the opportunity to understand your story and your patterns, and to work with you to figure out the underlying issues. The point will be for you to have a dedicated place to focus exclusively on your needs, and to learn coping strategies to help boost your resilience and emotional agility.

Life is about relationships: with ourselves, significant others, and even our work. Yet anxiety, self negation, and emotional exhaustion can obstruct us from being present and joyful in our own lives. I work with individuals who seek to identify unconscious messages, process emotions, and call on strengths to improve relationships with themselves and others. With couples, we will work to unproductive perceptions and behaviors, improve mutual flexibility, and enhance loving communication, in order to build a team approach. My process is highly individualized and collaborative. Support extends between sessions via email.

*Please use email to contact me* It is a great privilege to be welcomed into the lives of my clients. With the use of behavioral health techniques (CBT, biofeedback, relaxation, hypnosis, mindfulness meditation, etc.) In individual psychotherapy, I treat adults with various mental health, behavioral and medical conditions. While treatment is focused on the client's presenting problem, I believe we are much more than that and so all dimensions of well-being will be explored to some degree.

Life can be joyful and fulfilling, while it also brings stress, pain, and disappointment. Often life experiences can leave us feeling overwhelmed to the point that we find ourselves simply surviving rather than thriving. Loss, trauma, discrimination, relationship troubles, or simply adjusting to change can contribute to anxiety, depression, and ineffective patterns of thinking and behaving. As a therapist, my goal is to provide a safe and supportive space in which to better understand your thinking patterns, feelings, and behaviors in a way that empowers you to effect positive changes in all areas of your life.

Currently accepting new clients. People make the decision to engage in therapy for a multitude of reasons, all of which are valid. Some people may be ambivalent about making changes in their lives, while others might feel eager and ready to start the process. Regardless of where you find yourself on that continuum, I am here to support you. Although my background has mainly been focused around eating and body image, I see clients who are experiencing a variety of concerns: relationship issues, anxiety/depression, life transitions, unhappiness, etc.

You are the “go to” person for friends, family, and colleagues, but it costs you a lot of anxiety. Being seen as competent and put together helps you to achieve, while the pressure created by high expectations gets in the way of your day to day happiness. You want to get off the hamster wheel of pleasing and perfecting, but are unsure how to. While you look like you have it together to those around you, on the inside you are struggling and have a hard time asking for help.

William Arthur Ward once said, "We can choose to throw stones, to stumble on them, to climb over them, or to build with them." The passion I carry for the therapeutic process is not only founded on my training and education but also my personal experience. I have faith in one's capacity for growth that comes from the willingness to be honest and courage to face difficult issues. In this life we will encounter many stones in our path. It is up to each individual to choose what they will do with them.

What type of South Boston 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 or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in South Boston?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering 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.
