I collaborate with my clients to work on what is important to them, integrating my knowledge and clinical experience to guide the process. I believe that everyone has problems at times, and that these can prevent us from having the relationships and lives we desire. I see therapy as a dialogue and am active and direct in the process. I will partner with you to change old patterns and to draw out your strengths. Most people say I have a genuine, down to earth manner which makes it possible to feel safe and speak openly.

I've provided services in Windham County since October 2014. I prefer CBT and emphasize tapping into a client's strengths and interests in therapy. We all look at the world through our own unique lens and I try to relate my work to clients in ways that make sense to them.

I believe that the most healing, transformative therapeutic work occurs when there is an authentic relationship between therapist and client. I provide an environment which fundamentally supports a feeling of safety by witnessing you where you are with curiosity and without judgment. For many people, feeling safe also involves being able to set their own pace in therapy.

It is a nightmare: you don’t want to sleep, nor do you want to wake up. You go through the day feeling numb, empty and hopeless. Your world has turned upside down! Losing a loved one or hearing the words “you have a life-threatening illness” makes you want to scream, run away or curl up into a ball. “How can this be happening to me” You yearn for the world you once knew, one that was predictable, familiar and comfortable. You want to embrace the day, not dread it. Is it ever going to be possible to laugh, smile and be you again?

Are you feeling stuck, overwhelmed, or sad, struggling to make sense of these complex and challenging times? Do you need help moving forward to create more joy, meaning, and purpose in your life? Do you recognize the need for change, but struggle to follow through with necessary steps that would enhance your well-being? I believe that we all have what we need inside of us to realize our dreams and make the desired changes to become the person we want to be. However, sometimes we need a compassionate guide to help us navigate the path.

My work is informed by a belief that human beings have a fundamental desire to live in ways that feel authentic and meaningful. Relational challenges, illnesses, traumatic experiences, addictive patterns, and oppression can block us from accessing the inner strength and resilience that enable us to move towards fulfilling lives. Together, we will work to identify areas of struggle and to create more flexible ways of relating to your experience, thereby enabling you to make new choices that are more closely aligned with your inner hopes and personal goals.

My practice is dedicated to the idea that there is a warm compassionate presence alive in each of us that is capable of holding our most difficult experiences and healing our deepest wounds. My goal is to help clients begin to identify and change the habitual patterns of reactivity that may be clouding their lives and relationships, become more relaxed and mindful about their emotions and motivations, and find greater clarity in the actions they take. I strive to provide a warm and inviting environment that supports personal growth, self-acceptance, and healing.

I usually find that clients managing anxiety, depression, loss and/or addiction are first looking for a compassionate listener with the experience and knowledge that facilitates emerging inner strength. My approach is compassionate, non-judgmental and professional. Frequently my clients have issues with drugs or alcohol and I may work also with their partners, family, or concerned friends. I feel it is critical for everyone involved to know that they are not alone in their struggles, that support and guidance are available and that therapy has helped people feel better than they thought possible.

There are times in our lives when everything seems to be humming right along, and there are times when it's just not. It could be that you're worried about your child who's struggling, maybe you don't know what you want in life, your relationships aren't fulfilling, or you're feeling lost and unsatisfied in life despite having done what you thought would make you happy. Regardless of the reason, if these kinds of challenges are keeping you up at night, or distracted during the day, you're not alone. You're at a crossroads.

My therapy practice is based on the idea that everyone has the right to agency in their own life story. I believe that relationships have the power to be healing and transformative, and that a therapeutic relationship built on trust, curiosity, and empathy is the most important aspect of therapy. At the heart of my practice is the idea that therapy is a partnership in making space for hope, joy, and healing with each individual, and my work with clients is collaborative, anti-oppressive, and holistic.

At "Circle Forward" I welcome adults from diverse backgrounds, cultures, experiences, identities & belief systems. I am skilled at supporting people who have been overwhelmed and struggle with "trauma" - unresolved, survival responses (fight, flight, appease & shut down). These natural defensives are essential for dealing with threat. Protective impulses from the past can get stuck & intrude on relationships and on physical, emotional & spiritual rhythms of day-to-day life. I support you to feel safe & allow incomplete survival responses to move slowly & integrate fully. I work online and in Greenfield, MA.
