I'm a certified EMDR therapist licensed in NH, ME and MA. My passions are trauma , young adults, adults, the LGBTQ+ community & the slightly eccentric and off-beat. I have no interest in being a cookie cutter, blank slate type therapist! If that’s what you’re looking for I may not for you. A comfortable, safe connection is top priority. I have experience providing therapy in college counseling and this population is near to my heart. I'm an LGBTQ+ affirming therapist, ally to the community and enjoy working with people as they discover who they are and how to live authentically.

Neurofeedback is particularly effective in reducing the symptoms of co-occurring disorders like anxiety, depression, trauma , focus, and overall emotional regulation.
I am honored to be able to provide clinical services to those suffering from Substance Use Disorders. My ideal in practice is to form a strong, collaborative, therapeutic relationship with my clients. My style is empathetic, compassionate, and direct. I believe that by exploring thoughts, emotions, and maladaptive behavior patterns, we can become more insightful and understanding of ourselves. Through this vulnerable process we are able to create life-long change that will increase self esteem and the ability to form close interpersonal relationships with those we care about.

I have worked with clients to address anxiety, depression, trauma , and substance abuse.
For me, therapy is a safe place to truly explore the areas of our lives that impact our daily interactions with ourselves and those around us. Sometimes, when we go somewhere new we need a guide, someone who can help us climb the steep mountains safely and maneuver the hard terrain that can come. My goal as your therapist is to be that guide and help you navigate through the discoveries made throughout the process. Therapy can be emotionally challenging and can bring about vulnerability that is uncomfortable at times but what I hope to create for you is a place where you know your vulnerability will be protected and safe.

My background is in community mental health with a focus on adults and adolescents with mental health concerns, addiction, intimate partner/sexual violence, and trauma .
My training and experience have taught me that people are the experts on themselves and the body has the ability to heal itself. I can offer a secure and supportive space for your healing. I can provide guidance throughout your self-exploration.

I have 8 years of experience working with clients (ages 6-adult) on many topics including anxiety, depression, trauma , stress management, and self-identity.
Not accepting new clients at this time. Sharing your thoughts and feelings can be difficult, but with a trusted therapist it can feel a little less scary. In fact, it can be the first step towards making the changes you've been hoping to see in your life. Finding the right fit with a therapist is a key element to building a positive and effective therapeutic relationship. My therapeutic style is warm, empathetic, and validating with some humor sprinkled in at appropriate times. I use a client-centered approach so although I may gently guide, reflect, and ask questions, you are in charge of our pace and what our sessions cover.

If you have a history of adverse life experiences, we can utilize EMDR to help you process the trauma and move forward.
Are you going through a significant life transition or dealing with loss? Maybe you are questioning your choices and consider yourself an "overthinker". Have you found that you are not participating in activities you used to enjoy? It feels like things are going well, but you are not feeling content. These are common issues for clients that I work with. I want to support you in reaching your goals and creating a improved ability to handle the stressors in your life. You are able to make the necessary changes and find success, allow me to help you discover and tap into your potential to create the life you want.

Trauma and PTSD Therapists
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a psychological reaction that occurs after an extremely stressful event, such as physical violence or military combat. Those suffering from PTSD have recurring memories of the stressful event and are anxious or scared even in the absence of danger. Flashbacks and nightmares are common symptoms as well.
