3 years of experience
Solution oriented

Hi! I'm a Licensed Mental Health Counselor based in Massachusetts. I have been practicing for 3 years in home-based services, community mental health, and private practice. I entered the mental health field after working in corporate human resources for 5 years. I am skilled in the realms of trauma, co-occurring disorders, anxiety and depression, and transitioning to adulthood. I strive to help parents and couples navigate the challenges of the perinatal period, returning to work postpartum and childhood development. I utilize a client-centered, culturally sensitive, strength-based, collaborative, and direct approach to help clients work through transitional times in their lives.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

In our first session together, we'll start with brief introductions, then dive into the specific challenges you're facing. This will help me create a tailored plan for us to work through in follow-up sessions. If this is your first time in therapy, think of it as a conversation highlighting your needs; I am meeting you where you are. I help you feel ready to face the next steps in your life's story.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

Above all else, I believe in unconditional positive regard. Tools are great, but ultimately, trust, our connection, and finding relief by feeling heard and understood is what helps us carry on.
