Want to embody your most authentic self? I believe people find healing through community connection and creative expression. My practice focuses on empowering LGBTQIA + teens and adults who are motivated to develop healthier connections with themselves and relationships with others by exploring our connections to community and breaking down systemic challenges that impact mental health. I work from a trauma-informed, strengths based approach, including elements of person-centered, CBT, and systems-based methods to explore mood related emotional stressors.

I also specialize in treating issues unique to individuals and relationships in the LGBTQIA + community.
I currently have limited availability - Please note I am prioritizing couples therapy at this time. As a therapist, I will create a safe and nurturing space where we can freely explore your hopes and aspirations, as well as whatever difficulties you are experiencing in life. You will be met without judgment and provided guidance as you make the changes you seek. As I help guide you toward long-lasting change and acceptance, you will further develop strengths and qualities you bring with you. I tailor my therapy to you, and I promise to work as hard as you to get you to a place of happiness and healthfulness.

Over time my skills have been honed for working with struggling teens, self injury, LGBT youth, and families.
I am not your typical therapist, and strive to always create that emotional connection that allows us to work through any issue as a team. Most of my clients have already tried traditional therapy, and haven't been able to engage in one way or the other. Many of my clients haven't felt heard or understood, and it is a goal of mine to make therapy accessible for all. My belief as a therapist is that everyone can benefit- and should benefit from the relationship they have with their therapist. My clients believe in person centered care- and feedback goes both ways. I provide a trauma informed environment where the client gets to lead.

I often work with people coping with significant health issues and with LGBTQ + and gender fluid, non-binary clients.
I am glad to support those struggling in today's strange climate, or those looking to explore themselves and increase health and wellness while quarantined. My approach to treatment is strength based and multimodal. I use a holistic approach that can incorporate discussion, art, movement and humor to explore issues. I work well with those who have had trouble connecting with therapists in the past and those who may be resistant to entering treatment.

My practice is diverse and includes straight, gay , lesbian , bisexual , racial and ethnically mixed people for individual and couples psychotherapy.
I am always curious about how we become who we are and as someone once told me, “A person who enters therapy is an experience that wants to happen not a problem to be solved.” My focus is to encourage people to stay curious and open to possibilities of learning more about themselves, creating a supportive safe environment that supports positive movement and change. I stress the importance seeing oneself fully, psychologically, physically and spiritually. All these are important ways of supporting one’s life. I see myself as warm, present, accessible and being of help to accomplish this.

Furthermore, I am comfortable and knowledgable working with the LGBT community.
I am sorry to say I am not currently accepting individual clients. However, I do have openings in my DBT skills group. It meets in person in Needham and is for high school students only. I am a high energy, direct, relational therapist. I work hard to help clients articulate their goals and then take measurable steps towards achieving them. If you are looking for a therapist who is lively and a "straight shooter", I might be a good fit for you. In addition, I work well with motivated individuals, who may be struggling, but are also interested in creating change in their life.

" I aim to stay culturally humble, LGBTQ + affirming, and strengths-based.
You want a fulfilling life. And I want that for you! Anxiety and depression rates are high, and stressors are frequent. That means you're not alone, but you've found yourself here because you don't want things to stay the way they are. Feel like you're going to explode if something is out of place? Haven't contacted a friend in so long that you're embarrassed, so you're afraid to call/text? Nervous you'll do something out of character or inappropriate? I can help you navigate the discomfort of worry, rumination, ritualized behavior, avoidance, and emptiness, while moving toward balance and emotional freedom. Less anxiety, more YOU!

What type of Wellesley 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 Wellesley?
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.
