I take an empathic, pragmatic approach to therapy and am warm and encouraging by nature. I work collaboratively with clients to help them identify the sources of their distress and develop tools to overcome them. Whatever your goals may be—reduced anxiety/stress, greater peace of mind, better personal relationships—I want you to come away from our sessions feeling like you’re getting the support you need as you work to overcome challenges in your life. I work with adults and teens on a range of issues including anxiety, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), substance use, depression, and grief.
I have a Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology from John F. Kennedy University and have worked in hospice, school, and community center settings. In addition to psychotherapy, my background includes work and benefits counseling with people with disabilities and advocacy in the areas of disability rights and education.
