My style is warm, supportive, active, and down to earth with a sense of humor and creativity, which I think comes with working with a mix of kids, teens, and adults. My approach is to collaborate with you on developing skills and strategies to cope more effectively, as well as understand underlying patterns and past events that contribute to your current situation. We all struggle to see our strengths, at times, and therapy is a place to embrace those strengths and utilize them to balance out the unique challenges we face.

Currently accepting new clients for individual and couples therapy. I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker (LICSW) with a Master’s Degree in Social Work from Boston College. Prior to attending Boston College, I worked as a Kindergarten teacher in my home state of Wisconsin. As a past teacher, I have the most experience with children, but I love working with people of all ages and backgrounds. My education provided me with a wide spread of various internships and experiences, which have all helped grow my expertise in the field of mental health.

I specialize in working with children, adolescents, and adults around issues of grief and loss (death and non-death: divorce, relationship changes, life transitions, adoption, chronic illness) and anxiety. Through my many years working with bereaved children and their caregivers, I have learned that we all grieve in our own way and in our own time. In an attempt to create a refuge from the cultural pressure “to move on,” I strive to offer a welcoming, nurturing, and safe space for you to grieve your loss, to find hope and connection, and to discover ways to heal and to grow.

As a therapist, I work not as a "shrink" but an "enhancer," helping clients work through past problems, engage the challenges of the present, and move towards a more fulfilling future. I am client-focused rather than technique-focused because each client-therapist relationship is unique, and techniques should be employed selectively to optimize change and growth. That said, clients can expect that I will: 1) Act as a strong ally, adding emotional and intellectual energy to their efforts to change, 2) Provide insight and fresh perspective that takes them beyond their usual patterns of perceiving and responding to life circumstances.

When people feel better, they do better.  This is true for children, adults and couples.  And in families, when one person is doing better, everyone is better. You may be feeling overwhelmed or dissatisfied at home, school, work, or in an important relationship. You may be feeling like your life is not going how you had hoped or expected. Your child or teen may be struggling at home or school.  If you're a parent supporting a kid or partner who is struggling, you probably feel lonely, frustrated and discouraged. These are some of the difficulties that bring people to my office.

I believe that parents and children both want what is best, although they differ in what that looks like. Both benefit from a new perspective on their actions and motivations so that they can achieve greater understanding and compromise. My particular strength is connecting with someone's experience and perspective. I believe that in moments of pain and suffering we all need to feel that we are not alone and that things can be different. My role as their therapist is to be a companion wherever they take me, while honoring the very real obligations that they answer to.
