We go to the doctor when something feels "off" in our body so why don't we go see someone when something feels "off" in our minds? I believe everyone should be able to have a safe place to talk, to process, to understands one's own thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and overall one's self.
I offer individualized outpatient therapy, working with individuals of all ages and families struggling with a number of different mental health challenges

Therapy is much more than talking out your thoughts. I believe when engaged in therapy individuals can feel supported, validated and encouraged to overcome or get through anything. There is a misconception that therapy is only for people who have severe mental health issues or significant issues functioning. Although therapy is likely to be helpful for these people when effective it can be
helpful for most people in dealing with a wide array of life’s most stressful issues.
Therapy can help you in relationship issues, being more productive at work, overcoming generational trauma, environmental
trauma or just working through feeling unstuck in general. I am trained in several types of therapeutic modalities including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Brief Solution Focused Therapy and Motivational Interviewing. I have significant experience working with school aged youth, teenagers, those who have experienced trauma and, individuals from more diverse backgrounds. It would be my pleasure to support you in achieving your therapeutic goals.
I have a Masters Degree in Social Work from the University of Connecticut and am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker with eleven years of clinical experience supporting individuals in therapy, crisis and multiple other settings.

It is okay to not always be okay. Mental health is not a destination, but a process. Therapy is a safe space to talk, process, and work on both short-term and long-term goals. This is the beginning of a beautiful journey to a better you, and I cannot wait to be a support for you each step of the way.
I received my Masters in Social Work from Springfield College. A majority of my experience is working with youth and adolescents struggling with mental illness as well as with adults and older adults. I look forward to working with you on bettering yourself each and every day!
