Finding a stable sense of well-being can feel like an uphill struggle. It is a continually moving target that requires effort, adaptability, and support to maintain. As a therapist, I provide that support by helping people process and work through the issues they face. And among life’s issues, accepting help can be one of the most difficult. Talking to a stranger about one’s problems is understandably daunting, which is why I strive to create a comfortable environment free of judgment and rich with compassion.

I am the Associate Program Director for the Resource Connect substance abuse treatment facility. I am a licensed graduate professional counselor and earned my Master’s Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from William James College in Newton, MA. My approach is collaborative and client-centered, which means I am comfortable letting you shape your session, or I can provide structure tailored for your specific needs. My primary experience is working with adults (18 and up) with anxiety, depression, and substance abuse, though I also have experience with issues related to grief/loss, trauma, relationships, identity, careers, and life transitions. I frequently use evidence-based techniques including Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and mindfulness-based approaches.

I welcome the opportunity to help you in any way I can.
