We come to therapy with our struggles. The hope is that we leave them behind, and go forward in life with freedom and joy. I am here to offer counseling and therapeutic support to you as you unburden yourself of limitation, and seek your innate capacity for transformation. My job is to care about you as you learn just how deeply you can care for you, too. To me, therapy is listening deeply – I listen to you. And you listen to yourself, to hear your irreplaceable, undivided, internally original voice. I am inspired always by the incredible power, dignity and strength it shows every time you simply arrive in session.
I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker (LICSW) in the states of Washington and Massachusetts, and have a Master’s Degree in Social Work. I offer my services to individuals in need of a fresh approach to counseling. My areas of clinical expertise include anxiety and stress, depression, grief and bereavement, and trauma. I am primarily experienced in working with members of the LGBTQ community, individuals experiencing relationship issues, women dealing with pregnancy/postpartum, and families in conflict. I pay particular attention to concerns of self-esteem, codependency, spirituality, coping skills, and general needs for life coaching. My clinical orientation is largely Mindfulness-based Cognitive Behavioral, though I also lean in with an Existential framework as well.
All of my work is embraced with the spirit of mindfulness meditation, of which I have been a devoted student for over 15 years. Mindfulness is simply allowing our thoughts the space to be seen fully, in a non-judgmental way, so that we may see ourselves clearly, with compassion, and choose our course in life with wisdom.
I happily look forward to offering you support and guidance through whatever challenge you face right now. Together let’s transform your struggle into strength.
