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.

Are you struggling managing anxiety, depression or stress? Today may be difficult, but we can work on making sure that you feel some relief. When taking part in therapy, we will set goals that will put you on the path to reducing your symptoms. Each person comes to therapy with their own experiences; some good and others that have had a negative impact. Together we will process these experiences and learn how they are impacting you today. You can achieve a future where your mental health is not preventing you from living a good life.
During the therapeutic process I will learn about your goals and work with you to make them a reality. Some are looking to reduce their anxiety and depression. Others are experiencing life changes such as divorce or a breakup. We will work together to come up with a plan that is centered around your needs.
If not today, when? Take the first step in building a better future for yourself. Contact me or any therapist in your local area that you think will help you achieve your goal. Make your mental health a priority.
