I love what I do! It's more than a job it's a passion. It's about feeling privileged to being a part of your dreams, your fears, and the getting to know all of you, the good the bad, and all those hidden parts that you may not like. I welcome the whole of you, flaws and all. I will be here to cheer for your successes or be compassionately present for those dark moments.
I aim to assist others in embarking upon a journey of self-discovery. My role is to support others on their paths toward better self-awareness of mind and body. Together we can rewrite the narrative of the past, take hold of the present, and look forward to the future. Above all, I want clients to be moving forward in life feeling more balanced, more resilient, and able to love themselves wholeheartedly, in all their uniqueness and light. I specialize in working with adults with trauma and substance use disorders, but enjoy working with most anyone who wishes to connect with their inner Warrior in order to heal from past hardships.

I work from a person-centered approach to promote an empowering atmosphere for my clients.

I am passionate about facilitating growth within clients' marriages, love relationships, parent-child relationships, and any other relationships they wish to strengthen.

As a parent and a psychologist, I believe there is nothing more important than the well being of our children. For over thirty years, I have specialized in providing psychological therapy and psychoeducational testing services to children and adolescents in the Winchester area. I believe in the notion that to tap a child's potential, we need to focus on his or her strengths. Psychological testing enables us to determine just what those strenghts are, and if there are significant weaknesses, direct intervention strategies are outlined and put into play. The child's parents are always central in the process.

Therapy is an incredibly vulnerable process that involves stripping down the emotional armor we have collected over years of struggle, insecurity, or fear. For some the idea of therapy feels like the sweetest release and for others this idea feels incredibly intimidating. Often times, individuals present for their first sessions after an acute stressor, a period of prolonged distress, or even a previously failed treatment. Regardless of the precipitating factor, people often enter therapy when they feel hurt and alone. Many come with bruised hearts and tired souls, uncertain of what their struggles mean about their ability to heal.
I work with a wide range of emotional and behavioral issues informed by my over 29 years of experience as a psychotherapist. In a comfortable and supportive atmosphere, I offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each of my clients individual needs to help attain the personal growth they're striving for.
Oftentimes people are in search of ways they can change so that their lives are more meaningful and less overwhelming. Learning where issues stem from, having insight into your patterns, thoughts and behaviors, as well as learning new coping strategies can make all the difference.
Are you struggling at work, in your relationships, not able to maintain the healthy habits you're trying to develop? Take heart, it's not you; it's your wiring. And YOU can change it with Emotional Brain Training (EBT).

I will never tell you what to do because it is up for you to decide as to what works best. My time with you will be focused on how I can help you become the best version of yourself.
