About Me

I am a licensed mental health counselor who has been practicing in Massachusetts for over 30 years, focusing on treatment for depression, anxiety, mood swings and adjustment issues. I have worked with individuals enduring unexpected losses and grief, respectfully working through this change and what their new life might look like.
Much of therapy begins with understanding your own boundaries, strengths, skills and coping styles and I would work with you to learn more about these to establish a place where you're feeling better about yourself, interactions and decisions.
My style includes quite a bit of listening but also with some challenges to your perspective and how else you might want to respond in a situation.
I believe the whole person must be addressed and will consider how your health might be impacting your mood.
Finally, aside from being a counselor I am a Christian and am available to discuss your presenting issues from a faith perspective.
I look forward to hearing from you and discovering what awaits you in this time of change.
