I am an Independent licensed Clinical Therapist in Rhode Island with over 4 years of experience working as an Integrated Behavioral Health Therapist and consultant. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, other mood disorders, relationship issues, parenting problems, lack of motivation, self-esteem, career challenges, Grief and losses, PTSD, OCD, and ADHD. I also helped numerous people who have experienced trauma, and emotional and physical abuse. I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. It takes courage to seek out a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. I am here to support & empower you in that journey.
My therapy style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, dialectical behavior, solution-focused, and motivational interviewing as well as rational-emotive therapy. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!
