Welcome! I am open and affirming to all adults, adolescents & children, aged 10 and above. My office is physically challenged accessible, as I believe all should have equal opportunities. I practice Holistic Psychotherapy, helping you connect your past events to your present day situation and behaviors, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, helping you turn your negative thoughts processes into positive ones, and Acceptance Commitment Therapy, which through mindfulness techniques, helps you accept the present moment for what it is. Talk Therapy is also important to purge our feelings in a safe space, while learning coping mechanisms.

I hold two masters degrees: Behavioral Medicine/Health Psychology, and Human Services/Counseling. I was a licensed therapeutic foster parent for twenty years through the DCF. I also worked as a case manager for seven years fighting for the rights of my acquired brain injured and elder clients, and have a certification in brain injury (CBIS).

Past experiences have brought you to your present situations. You are always in charge of your own therapy experience, and I will assist you in reaching your goals My office is a safe space for you to feel heard. If you are physically challenged, you may qualify for home visits. Allow me to help you find a better, more peaceful place in your life.
