People sometimes come to psychotherapy seeking support in getting through a challenging time or in making a difficult decision. Others are looking to change long-term patterns of behaving and relating. And some are interested in more generally examining their motivations and increasing self-awareness. Whatever your goal or motivation, I believe psychotherapy can facilitate discovery and growth that can strengthen and improve the quality of your relationships not only with with the significant people in your life but also, maybe more importantly, with yourself.

Are you struggling with depression? Anxiety? Relationships? Life comes with struggles and transitions that are often difficult to manage on our own.

I am a licensed therapist in the state of CT and specialize in the topics of anxiety, depression, grief, relationships, identity confusion, and pregnancy/postpartum. In couples work I focus on the importance of communication, trust, and sexual awareness. My approach to psychotherapy has emphasis on the needs of each individual client.

My therapeutic approach is based on a psychodynamic perspective with a strength-based, ego-supportive, and empathic stance. I am mindful of each individual’s unique needs and circumstances with a strong awareness of socioeconomic, cultural, and environmental factors that contribute to various experiences and stressors. I integrate nonverbal and verbal aspects of the therapeutic process through the use of creative arts as I've found both to be effective in exploring one’s unconscious mind and understanding how it may be affecting conscious behaviors and thought processes.

As we all face emotional and professional conflicts that leave us feeling lonely, unfulfilled or stuck, it's hard to keep hope when you feel trapped by longstanding patterns in your relationships, thoughts, or career.
