Hello! I am Licensed Mental Health Counselor with 12 years of experience working with adults and teenagers. I completed my clinical training at Boston College and I have worked in a variety of outpatient settings. My approach leans toward person centered and reality therapy. I am trained in CBT and typically prefer to combine this approach with the practice of mindfulness for it to be the most beneficial. I teach and practice yoga and I am sometimes asked to incorporate relaxation techniques into my work with clients.
Making the decision to seek therapy is both a challenging and rewarding one and I am sensitive to the importance of building a trusting relationship between client and therapist. It takes courage to recognize there are things in our life that need to be changed. Whether it is learning to better understand relationships, thinking patterns or behavior that brings us into counseling, the results can be powerful and life altering. I am honored to partner with my clients in this process. Therapy is a way to improve our resilience and gain better insight into what motivates or hinders us. It is a way to relieve distress or a way to improve what we are already doing well.
My goal as a therapist is to help each client recognize their own internal resilience and how to use it to improve the quality of their lives, regardless of what may have happened in their past. We all have the capacity to make things better, to be stronger or to have greater patience with ourselves and others.
I will use a variety of therapeutic techniques, to help you get the most out of life. Whether you are looking for personal growth or to stabilize feelings like anger, depression or anxiety I will work with you to identify solutions to keep you on a path to better living.
