About me

Take the first step in faith. You don't have to see the whole staircase, just step the first step. - Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

I am a mental health counselor licensed in Massachusetts with over 17 years of experience. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, stress, anxiety, parenting problems, ADHD, and anger management. I also helped many people who have experienced grief and loss, career changes, and eating and sleep disorders.

My counseling style is non-judgmental and supportive. I believe in creating a safe space where one can learn and grow while they are treated with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. My approach is solution focused combining cognitive-behavioral and reality based techniques. I will tailor our sessions and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

Counseling and seeking change is hard work. It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that first step up the staircase, I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!
