My goal as a therapist is to empower clients to live more mindfully. I believe that we each have the power to gain insight into our thoughts; increase awareness and connection with our feelings; more effectively manage stress; and make the changes in our lives that are necessary to function more fully in relationships, and work. My role as a therapist is to facilitate this process. I work with clients on issues such as addictions, depression, anxiety, learning difficulties, conflicts within families/couples,and anger management.

Problem solving is a process and offering strategies, improved perspective and healthy coping skills are all part of this process. Do you find yourself asking why your children behave the way they do? Why they don't appear to listen? Why are you always repeating yourself? Do you find yourself often stressed or worried? Are there days you wonder why nothing seems to get done? Are you looking to better define yourself and your own goals, looking to improve your self-confidence and your relationships?

So much of the stress we feel in life can come from relationships and situations that do not make sense to us. Perhaps you have a sense that “something is just not right” in those dynamics, but you cannot figure out what it is. You may notice that you are feeling anxious, overwhelmed, distracted and depressed, and you feel at a loss for how to change that. My passion is working with folks who are wanting to shift those confusing dynamics and heal from the negative impact of them.

I work with individuals (adolescents and adults) struggling with acute trauma, grief, depression, anxiety, mood instability, attachment issues, and adjustment issues.
Welcome! I know that we are living in some challenging times. There is a profound sense of burnout we are all feeling these days. When you couple that with depression, anxiety, trauma, and loss, it can feel overwhelming. There is hope. By sharing your challenges and learning new ways to cope, improvement and recovery are possible. I am a psychotherapist who provides online therapy to adults, adolescents, and families. I have been practicing social work for 30 years. I hold a Master's Degree and a Doctoral Degree in Social Work and am licensed in Maine as a clinical social worker.

Concerns I work with include grief, to include death and non-death losses; anxiety; living with chronic disease and disability; body image concerns; developing boundaries; self-esteem; disordered eating; stress management; life transitions; wellness and lifestyle goals; developing coping and emotional regulation skills.
I am currently accepting new clients. I have seen that nearly everyone struggles at some point in life and with the right support, people can be empowered to change. I believe that an empathic and trusting relationship, one where people feel supported and safe to be themselves is essential for therapy to be successful. I strive to provide that safe space and help individuals access their internal strengths and sources of resilience. My goal is to help individuals integrate new or different approaches into their life so they can live their "best life", whatever that looks like to them.

Depression, generalized anxiety, social phobias, grief & life transitions are a few of my specialities.
I don't solve problems. What I do is work with clients and teach you how to problem solve!! And then we practice that skill together. No matter the age of my client nor the reason that brings them to my office, I want to be clear that this is a team approach. That having a neutral party to speak with; someone who will not judge but someone with whom you can share your concerns and issues can make all of the difference in the world in bringing about the changes that you desire.

Given the many challenges that life can hand us, it's easy to lose hope or feel overwhelmed. You are not alone. All too often our minds begin to take over filling our head with old messages that no longer serve us. Perhaps we are judging ourselves too harshly or feeling guilty for things that are out of our hands. Perhaps our heart is burdened with feelings of depression or anxiety. By exploring the importance of grounding ourselves in the present and practicing an awareness of being mindful, we can change our life patterns finding the inner peace that we strive for. Working together we can find hope in the present moment.

I specialize in working with individuals who are struggling with anxiety and depression, and those who have been affected by trauma.
It is natural to seek support when we feel overwhelmed, confused, fearful or depressed.The therapeutic process offers us the opportunity to build on skills that we already have in order to find relief, hope and healing. My work combines practices of narrative therapy (examining the beliefs we have about ourselves), cognitive behavioral work (paying attention to our thoughts), expressive therapy (healing through art and writing) and mindfulness exercises.

I help adults work through behavioral health concerns including anxiety, depression, trauma, life challenges and changes both personally and relationally.
Currently, my primary work is with Individual Adults, in Kennebunk, Maine and Telehealth in Maine, Massachusetts and Florida. We all want to be happy. And many of us are happy much of the time as ordinary events pass through us without leaving a mark. And then, something happens and we're stuck. These events narrow our view of ourselves, our world and keep us from living to our full potential. Your problems affect who you are today and you want things to change. I can help you reduce what keeps you stuck so that you can move forward living your life in a more fulfilling and meaningful way.

Life is challenging and it just never stays the same! Sometimes we find ourselves in a rough patch where old patterns of behavior just don't work anymore but we don't know what else to do. I believe it's my job to help you find your way through to new answers and behaviors that serve you better.

Anxiety Therapists

What are the most common treatments for anxiety?

Talk therapy, particularly cognitive behavioral therapy, is the most common treatment for anxiety. Studies have shown it is equally effective as medication. Other popular forms of therapy are popular, depending on a patient’s experience. Exposure therapy, for instance, can be useful for people dealing with fears and phobias, or who have experienced traumatic events. Dialectical Behavioral Therapy may be useful for patients who need help with emotion regulation. Anxiolytic medications, like benzodiazepines, can also help with calming a person enough to focus on the skills they’ve learned, and physical exercise has been shown to help symptoms of anxiety across the board.

How long does therapy for anxiety take to work?

The amount of time needed to alleviate symptoms depends on the severity of a person’s condition. Some therapies may take 5-20 weekly sessions to show results. Anti-depressant medications typically take two to four weeks before a benefit is felt. Anti-anxiety medications are felt typically within 20-30 minutes. Medications are best used to offer a patient a better headspace in which to work on techniques learned in therapy. Exercise, improved sleep habits, and meditation are effective, but takes weeks or months to show results.

When should I seek treatment for anxiety?

Everyone feels anxious at times, but when anxiety causes disruption to your daily life, it may be time to seek help. Such disruption can be mental, physical, or both: having fear dominate your thoughts, avoiding situations or objects that bring on feelings of anxiety, or experiencing shortness of breath, sweating, dizziness, or panic attacks. When these symptoms are recurrent and distressing, it may be time to talk to someone.

How effective is treatment for anxiety?

Treatment for anxiety has been shown to be moderately to highly effective, according to a large body of psychology studies and analyses. For some people, treatment using CBT or exposure therapy alone is effective. Others respond best to a combination of medication and therapy.
