I am also interested in supporting those struggling with anxiety disorders and ADHD.
If you are anything like me, you know that life is not only hard, it can sometimes feel impossible. Fortunately, counseling can be both a refuge and a catalyst for life-changing growth. I believe there’s something mysterious within all of us that already knows what we need and how to get there - sometimes we just need support in figuring out what’s getting in the way. There is no world where I am an expert on you, but I am an expert in feeling pretty miserable. And it’s from my own struggles as a complex human that I am able to be a passionately knowledgeable and creative resource for you.

I have over 9-years-experience working with children, adolescents, and young adults with trauma, depression, anxiety, and developmental disabilities.
Do you feel like no one understands what you're going through and like you have to constantly explain yourself? We all have bumps along the road and I am here to provide you with the support needed in order to get through them. I provide therapeutic services through a "person-centered" approach and allow for clients I am working with to take the driver's seat and determine where we go and what aspects of concern we will talk about in session. I am here to listen, help you create positive change in your life, and provide you with skills necessary to handle everyday hurdles you encounter.

My specialties of issues to help with are anxiety, trouble managing stress, trauma, and relationship issues.
Do you ever feel like you’ve been fighting an internal battle with yourself? Do you notice that the more you try to force yourself to stop thinking and feeling a certain way, the more unmanageable it becomes? What if I told you that you could let go of this struggle and instead use that energy to focus on what is most important to you in your life? I know this may sound impossible, but in our work together I will teach you how to change your relationship with your thoughts, feelings, experiences, and self so you can get back to living the life you want and deserve.

My specialties include anxiety, depression, grief, fatigue/burnout, child and school issues, ADHD Coaching (children and adults), relationship issues, family conflict, parenting, life coaching and transitions.
The past few years have undoubtedly taken a toll on people, and families' emotional and mental health. The effects are evident, but not irreversible. Circumstances have changed our mood, how we react, interact and cope with the world and those around us. Family, intimate, personal, and work relationships have been affected. Coping skills that have worked in the past, may no longer serve us well, and could be hindering our overall health, happiness, contentment and wellbeing.

Being solution-focused and having extensive experience with anxiety, depression, grief, trauma,family issues,and an additional specialty of families challenged by developmental disorders, we are a practice with a mission to serve.
"Life is difficult." That's a Scott Peck quote. Healing begins just by embracing this quote. Three simple words, but on a bad day, very true, right? Sunny days seem inaccessible. You've already taken the first step, which is realizing that the listening ear of a therapist just might be helpful. After graduating from Boston U, my emphasis became adolescents, family relationships, and women's issues. This is my practice emphasis, but my door is open to all who are interested in growth and self-reflection.

I help youth and adults with stress, anxiety and depression, who are tired of pretending everything is okay.
Do you feel like you have been treading water for ages, barely able to keep your head above water? Or maybe you couldn’t tread any longer and have just been drowning? Maybe you’ve been searching for a lifeline, a pathway back to you. The you before all the hurt, pain, and confusion. You, who had a strong sense of self and who was not afraid to live authentically and vibrantly. But every time those bad experiences rise to the surface, you push them down. And the truth is that pushing it all down is just as tiring as you imagine addressing them head on would be. I know that you're tired of saying you’re okay when you are far from it.

I primarily utilize Somatic Experiencing and attachment theory to help clients get to the root of their anxiety, disordered eating, body image struggles, perfectionism, and many other concerns.
We might be a good match if you suspect that past experiences are affecting you, if you are seeking a deeper connection with yourself and others, or if you’ve tried other types of therapy but haven’t experienced lasting healing. I believe the body naturally wants to move toward healing and use this approach through my work with trauma, anxiety, and stress. I am passionate about equipping people to work through past, present, and future challenges and strive to be a peaceful and supportive presence in the process. I believe therapy is a place for laughter, tears, connection, and healing.
