Whether you’re stuck in the woods of relationships, life transitions, or addiction, it is possible to get out of the dark places and back into the sun. Together, we will work to address the issues you are facing and come through on the other side with a new way of thinking, and confidently take on a new direction in life. We will work closely to analyze what struggles you are facing and their underlying causes, and try to change the behaviors and thought patterns that are keeping you from being the person you want to be.
I received my Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology from Framingham State University and completed postgraduate work in Addictions Counseling at the University of Massachusetts, Boston. I am dually certified as both a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and a Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor. Prior to starting my own practice, I gained experience in long-term residential recovery, correctional mental health and group practice settings. I embrace diversity and identify as an LGBTQ+ ally.
I am an empathic, non-judgmental therapist who believes in meeting you where you are and building on your strengths in a safe environment that allows you to achieve your personal goals. Therapeutic approaches blend a client-centered orientation with a variety of evidence-based practices including CBT, Positive Psychology, Motivational Interviewing and Harm Reduction. In addition to working with substance abuse clients and their families, areas of expertise include couples therapy and managing life transitions.
