I enjoy using mindfulness, meditation, stress management and anxiety reduction techniques. I employ cognitive-behavioral strategies, acceptance and commitment therapy and other techniques to help clients build on their existing strengths. I support clients toward developing additional skills to empower themselves through difficult times. I have observed therapy to be an invaluable tool that can help to guide us along our path. It is a resource to assist in building the life we choose and design for ourselves, especially when facing challenges and obstacles.
Through the past decades of my work, I have enjoyed working with children, adolescents, and adults of all ages in a variety of settings and situations. I've worked in homeless shelters, schools, hospitals—Mass General Hospital’s oncology department and in psychiatry at Berkshire Medical Center. I've worked with people who have experienced trauma, with individuals and families who are trying to find balance and cohesion in relationships in their lives. I’ve encouraged people who are making major life transitions and are questioning their decisions. I have assisted those struggling with stress, anxiety and depression that impedes their daily lives. I’ve supported people who are grieving the end of a relationship or the death of a loved one, and with those who feel lost, alone, or misunderstood. It is my mission to support you in hearing and using your own voice to identify the life plan you have for yourself. Together we will explore the challenges that stand in your way and recognize the strengths you already possess. I will collaborate with you to design your map for your journey toward your future. With the variety and richness of experience I will bring into our work together, we will have plenty of resources and tools to assist you in striving toward your goals.
