About me

My approach to therapy offers guidance in your journey of rediscovering your unconditional love for yourself and your world. I help you have compassion for challenging feelings by acknowledging how these feelings are separate from our inner spirit and therefore don’t define our self worth. It becomes easier to accept these feelings by also acknowledging that they have a purpose of self protection and therefore come from a place of love. Acceptance of feelings allows us to return to nurturing our bodies through somatic practices and reach a state of joy in the present moment for our blessings. I hope I can reignite the light that is already in you so it can shine brighter for yourself and for your world.

My undergraduate degree/masters degree are from Boston College. I have had clients as young as two and as old as 87! I’ve worked with all ages in outpatient. My focus was children/families in partial hospitalization and in-home. I’ve primarily supported those finding challenge with anxiety, sadness and anger. I am passionate how physical health intertwines with mental health. Therefore I nourish my body with plants and move every day! I have found joy as a boxing instructor and runner. I hope to expose myself to more cultures through travel. I studied abroad in Ecuador and participated in service trips to El Salvador, Mississippi, New Orleans, and the Appalachian region. I live a spiritual life with the belief that we and all “things” are connected by a shared energy of love. Some of my blessings include my parents, sister, brother-in-law, and four-year-old nephew. “You'll never find a rainbow if you're looking down.”

I've been working with Eileen for 2 years and she has been a blessing. I was so anxious when I first met her - she's helped me navigate from a place of surviving to one of thriving - where now I can focus on self improvement during our sessions. Thank you Eileen!

At first I was skeptical about it but after over a year I can say it’s worth it.

Eileen is kind, wise, intuitive, and emotionally intelligent. She gives you space to talk and her questions are always on point. She is supportive and warm but also challenges you to help you grow. All I can say is: Trust the process. After working with her for about 8 months, I can safely say that I learned more about myself and grew more as a person through my time with her in these several months than I have on my own in 10-20 years. I highly recommend Eileen. Her presence here on Betterhelp is a gift. Thank you so much for everything Eileen!
