Beginning a new relationship that you want to keep? Want to make a long term relationship better? Feeling disconnected from your partner/unhappy with the current state of your relationship? Or maybe you want to work on your relationship with yourself. I find great joy in working with clients as they gain insight and skills to explore these important areas of life. I help clients as they learn about and transcend the barriers within themselves that get in the way of living the life they want or having the relationships they desire. We also work on improved communication, increased positivity, and emotional regulation.

In my 46 years of practice as a psychologist, in Tennessee, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, and New Hampshire, I have had the honor and privilege of working with so many patients on their paths of exploration, personal growth, and healing. My approach is grounded in psychodynamic, existential, and Buddhist theories, with a focus on integrating mindfulness and compassion with self and others. It is my belief that the quality of the psychotherapy relationship between therapist and patient is the principal healing force in treatment. Thus, I do my best to form a good and ethical therapeutic relationship with each of my patients.

After three decades in corporate leadership and a midlife awakening to new passions, I am a testament that it's never too late to write a new chapter! In my present work with clients, I offer individuals and couples a safe, confidential, and encouraging space to unpack their stories, explore new paths, regain hope, and reimagine their future.
Within each of us is an innate desire to be deeply known; to share our story; to be fully seen by another. It is in this achingly vulnerable space where we experience acceptance; belonging; intimate connection. When our lived experiences hold unaddressed narratives of neglect, abuse, abandonment, rigid intolerance or profound loss, the natural longing for connection can become distorted or overridden. What emerges from our understandable aversion to risk and rejection is the imperative to channel all our energy towards managing or keeping hidden the unacceptable parts of ourselves and our story. If this resonates, you are not alone.

Having worked with individuals and couples to develop strategies to cope with and manage the effects of a stressful career, address trauma, grief, infertility and adoption, Post-Partum Depression, and other mental health concerns, I know that reaching out can be hard.
Therapy should be a safe place for you to work on goals, gain skills to better deal with life challenges, and/or to take back your life from the effects of trauma, depression, or anxiety. I customize my style for each individual and use evidence-based interventions to help you reach your goals. We can work together to help you find understanding, and catalyze growth and healing. I worked in the corporate world for 10+ years, and understand the struggles of managing a team, proving your worth, and finding time and ways to care for your soul.

I am passionate about working with diverse gender and sexual identities, diverse relationship structures, and performing artists.
There is beauty in the complexity of our lives, and often difficulty too. Sometimes, our inner resources and life's challenges don't align, and leave us feeling stuck, overwhelmed, or unskilled. My goals is to help you to find more freedom, ease, and wholeness in these moments. I am skilled in working with experiences of depression, anxiety, panic, trauma and chronic pain/illness. I am interested in working with members of the LGBTQIA+ community, neurodivergent folks, and those whose lives question social norms. My approach emphasizes gentleness, mutuality, creativity, and awareness from a trauma-informed, anti-oppressive lens.

I offer SPACE for individuals, families, and couples to observe and connect with inner thoughts, feelings and actions.
Whether you are navigating life’s challenges or juggling life’s blessings, if life is imbalanced, both can feel overwhelming. It's important to declutter our lives to make room for growth and what matters most to you. Between the expectations we put on ourselves and those put on us, deciphering between the two can be challenging. This often leads to our feeling anxious, depressed or stuck. Achieving balance may be mapping out future goals, setting boundaries, mending relationships or simply needing a sounding board. Imagine waking daily to a life where you get to decide. It is the most liberating and balanced of all.

Life is MESSY. It's serving chaos, stress, and curveballs left and right. And unfortunately… the messiness is probably more common than “everything going like it should.” Still, you don’t have to navigate the mess alone. If you feel lost, overwhelmed, or have no idea what to do next— let me be a partner on your path. We can work on cultivating and increasing your access to the strengths you already have inside, but may not always know how to tap into right now. I do this work because I feel passionate about supporting people as they navigate challenging life circumstances and create a life that is authentically meaningful.

You're navigating through life's tricky maze. You might be a hard-working professional, a vibrant young adult, a loving couple, or a fiery teenager. You're a dynamo - successful, busy, and always on the move. Yet, there's something amiss.

Perhaps relationships aren't thriving like they used to, or your life's trajectory has you questioning what's next.
