I am now accepting patients for my DBT group....Have you been feeling stressed, lonely, or unsure how to manage your emotions? I am a therapist licensed in both MA and NJ serving clients who may be struggling with depression, anxiety, stress, PTSD, addiction and more. As a certified trauma specialist, I view therapy as a safe and secure place to process life experiences and build real, tangible tools for coping with the aftereffects of these experiences. It is my goal to help you regain peace of mind and learn how to better manage difficult life experiences.
As a therapist, my intention is to create a safe, comfortable space that encourages you to show up as you are, share your story, and speak your truth. I will work with you to identify goals that are specific to your needs. My approach to counseling is person-centered and eclectic. I incorporate different styles of therapy in my efforts to offer wide-ranging interventions. I am energetic and active in my role, and I utilize problem solving techniques and coping skills in my practice. I believe self-care plays a major role in emotional wellness, and I look forward to working together to make small changes that will make a big impact.
For a nearly a quarter of a century I have been helping people work through some of life's most difficult and challenging moments. Together we work to clarify problems, reveal barriers, and challenge misconceptions. Transformation occurs! You develop new ways of coping; live more fully; experience an improved sense of wellness. You emerge from the process with a greater understanding of yourself, your circumstances, and what is possible. Let me show you what awaits you on the other side of life's challenges.
After 35 years in practice, I consider myself a spiritual midwife of sorts, helping you birth your authentic self. I believe that our original sources of emotional pain continue to cause us distress in various ways without us even knowing it. Together we can examine how your life experiences have taught you to be in the world and create new possibilities for the future. My psych-spiritual approach focuses on the whole person, acknowledging that growth happens on many levels. Rather than pathologize, I seek to understand and guide. I enjoy working with groups as well as individuals and lead personal growth journeys overseas.
I work with children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families from different cultural backgrounds. My style is active, interactive, and engaging. My clients come with anxiety, depression, anger, life transitions, past trauma, and relationship-related issues.
*Certified CBT Therapist* My approach to therapy allows me to conduct solution-focused therapy; meaning that together we will work towards solving whatever questions you may have through changing thoughts and/or behaviors. I also perform Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) where my work focuses on helping people change problematic behaviors. With a teaching style heavily rooted in behavior therapy, I am able to work with people to problem solve in the here and now, where we will work to turn the issues of yesterday and today into a better tomorrow.
Life challenges us sometimes to dig deep within ourselves to work through difficult issues we are facing. Sometimes we need a kind ear to listen, and other times we are seeking insight into the roots of unwanted behavioral or emotional patterns. My clinical practice focuses on treating adults and children experiencing a variety of challenges in their lives with compassion, open-mindedness and straightforward feedback. I integrate practical interventions with insight and support in an atmosphere of safety, warmth and empathy. Together, we can work towards the aspects of your life that lead you closer to experiencing a happy and healthy life.
I am passionate about supporting and guiding women through major life transitions using somatic movement therapy. I have a specific interest in how through supportive, compassionate connection; a person’s nervous system can be re-wired to feel safe and grounded through various forms of expressive arts. My intention is to create a gentle space for you to experience your own voice openly and honestly by assisting the development and expression of your unique strength and resilience within the therapeutic relationship and most importantly within your personal relationships.
I worked as a therapist for a local community mental health agency for 4 years, where I developed a specialty in working with adults, particularly around anxiety, depression, boundaries, and self esteem issues. I strive to provide a safe and non-judgmental space to explore feelings, decrease conflict, and work toward an individual's goals. My hope is that we can develop a relationship that feels comfortable and supportive. It is my belief that you are the expert on you, and that by working together, we can explore your strengths and skills.
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.
Life's natural ups and downs can be hard to manage, and finding support through therapy is a courageous first step. Whether you're managing anxiety, depression, a past trauma, or a life transition, I will be right there with you as you develop new approaches in a safe environment. I will bring to each session compassion, patience, understanding, my sense of humor, and a trove of experience. If you're searching for a therapist to help you process your experiences and feelings, or to make sense of a particular moment in your life, then you've found a therapist who is ready to stand by you on this journey.
In the current environment, it is more important than ever to prioritize your mental health and emotional well-being. When the demand of our lives becomes overwhelming at times we can feel trapped and powerless. Often we will ignore or seek to avoid our emotional pain rather than address it. Regardless of the challenges you are facing in life, positive change is always possible. In my work as an LMHC I help individuals approach their emotional pain and experiences in a way that reduces their suffering and aids in promoting personal well-being through the use of mindfulness-based therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.

Parents and children have been having disagreements since the beginning of time. It can be hard to understand what a child is going through, especially when you feel you’ve done everything you possibly can to make things better. The loss of control coupled with feelings ranging from hopelessness to anger can lead to strained and fractured family dynamics.
