Welcome! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor that believes in working collaboratively with her clients to meet goals set forth by the client. The journey to wellness includes validation, empowerment, and a comfortable therapeutic relationship to allow you to grow and reach each goal that you set. I specialize in Cognitive-Behavioral and Solution Focused approaches that allow you to get specific about your goals and empower you to achieve them, however I do not believe in a "one size fits all" approach to therapy and adjust my approaches according my clients and their therapy goals. My approach is warm and friendly and building the therapeutic alliance is important to me.
My Master's Degree is in Human Behavior with a specialization in counseling. I have been a licensed clinician for over 5 years and worked closely with clients suffering from depression, stress/anxiety, self-esteem, and trauma/abuse. I also have experience in regard to substance abuse, life transition, family dynamics, career counseling, and foster care/adoption. No matter what the presenting issues my approach is compassionate and non-judgmental. I believe you are the expert of your life.
When I am not working you can find me spending time with my family and our dog. I enjoy being outside whenever possible, to just enjoy the sunshine or go for walks/hikes. I am an avid sports fan and follow the Boston Red Sox and Bruins. My favorite wellness activities include yoga and meditation.
The decision to engage in therapy is a huge step toward a happier and healthier life. I look forward to working with you!
