About me

I appreciate you, and the courage you show in seeking counseling. I will provide the sensitivity, kindness, and non-judgmental environment you seek. I have been counseling for over 30 years, and in private practice for over a decade. Allow me the privilege of providing a safe environment for you. We will empower you to achieve your goals, and heal any pain you may be experiencing. I am compassionate and understanding, as well as empathic and consistent. My listening skills are unparalleled. At Boston University, where I received my master's degree, I was taught to "start where the client is". Therefore, what matters to you is what matters to me. I am on your team. I understand how important it is to have someone who can offer validation...this is so rare and hard to find. It is so important to have someone tell us " make sense!" This is what I offer you. I care deeply about each client's needs. I will work with you as a team, empowering you by developing a treatment plan unique to your needs. This plan will help you achieve your deepest desires and overcome your obstacles. I have experience working with people from all backgrounds and walks of life. I also have experience using many different methods of treatment. **I do not write letters for any reason. ie-medical, work, school, pet therapy, court, etc. Any unattended session not cancelled prior to 24 hours will be reported to BetterHelp. ** I will be here with you every step of the way, and I have faith in your ability to persevere!
