I work with children, adolescents, young adults , parents, and families.
I want you to feel empowered, hopeful, and proud of exactly who you are. As we grow, we all experience transitions and challenges that can shake our core beliefs about ourselves, our relationships, and our sense of belonging and purpose in this world. I have worked with children and caregivers to address the cause and effects of trauma, mental health issues, and substance use disorders on individual and family functioning. I am passionate about helping people work through difficult times or process past experiences to rebuild their sense of self worth, develop healthy coping skills, and confidently move into the future.

I generally work with adults , either as individuals or couples .
I like to do a lot of listening and to provide emotional support prior to making any suggestions. Also, I have found that Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a very effective component to counseling because it helps clients to identify habitual coping strategies that he/she has been employing that have helped to reduce stress in the past but now cause all sorts of problems. In addition to providing emotional support, I will help you to be mindful of these tendencies and practice replacing the thoughts (and the behaviors associated with them) with strategies that will help you live a happier,life.

I specialize in providing growth-oriented therapy to adults looking to find more satisfaction in relationships, address family dynamics/conflicts, workplace stressors, and identity development, and increase their self-esteem.
Pursuing therapy represents a desire to heal. Whether dealing with a new change in life or a past trauma/hurt, my work with clients is focused on supporting the process of healing and learning to "let go" of the harmful patterns that get in the way of feeling happy and fulfilled in our lives and relationships. As a therapist, I strive to create a space where you can pause, reflect, and feel supported and safe in acknowledging the emotions that we've all learned to avoid, dismiss, or tuck away. Imagine finally allowing yourself to feel those emotions and learning to show yourself the same compassion you'd show a close friend.

I provide therapy focused on helping adults and teens heal from depression, anxiety, and chronic stress, navigate life transitions, increase wellbeing and deepen self-understanding.
Welcome! You may be here because you’re looking for a new therapist, or maybe are just curious about whether counseling is right for you. Sometimes, people start therapy knowing exactly what they want to address, such as intense feelings of sadness, grief, anxiety, troubling substance use or high levels of stress. Other times, the problem doesn’t have a clear name. It’s possible you feel stuck, or that something’s not quite right, but have trouble putting it into words. Whether you know what you want to achieve in therapy or are unsure if it's even right for you, you’re starting in the right place.

What type of South Portland 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 Portland?
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.
