About me

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and a Licensed Addictions Counselor in Massachusetts with over 35 years of counseling experience. I have worked with children, adolescents, and adults with a wide range of concerns, including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, traumatic events, chronic illness, parenting issues, and aging and substance use issues.
I look forward to working with you!

My therapy style is warm and interactive. I treat everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. My approach to treatment depends on the issues brought to the therapy session. Therapy is hard work and needs commitment. I'll guide you to make the most out of your therapy session. The treatment modalities I utilize are: are Client-Centered Therapy, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Narrative Therapy, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy. I am certified to treat children and adolescents with anxiety disorders. Together we can work on a treatment plan to address issues in therapy.

It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps toward change. But if you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.

You have taken the first step to learn more about yourself and facilitate change. If you are ready to take that step, I invite you to schedule a first-time appointment.

I'm looking forward to working with you.
