About

I believe therapy is about helping you explore ways to make the changes in your life that will allow you to look forward to the future with hope. I believe that we all need someone to talk with who will really listen and accept us as we are, without judgment. I will provide you with that warm, nonjudgmental environment-a safe place to explore the issues that may be preventing you from living the life you want. We all go through difficult times and together we can work to foster resiliency to help you on your journey towards healing.
Today's pressured culture can contribute to challenging transitions for both "emerging adults" and parents. As the former Assistant Director of Counseling & Psychological Services at Fairfield University, I bring my expertise to teach coping skills and strategies that help strengthen resiliency for young adults and offer coaching techniques for parents.
Life is a journey...and as a Certified Career Counselor I can help you find your destination. Bringing together my skills as an AVP in Human Resources Recruiter/Manager and my experience in Higher Education provides me with the expertise to create a truly personalized career plan just for you.
