Connecticut is known for its long shoreline. A shore can be the perfect representation of life. It’s vast, and as you look ahead, it can fill you with ambition or dread, especially if a storm is coming. 

If you’re ready to set sail on your adventure, a counselor can be the perfect ship you need. A therapist can guide you during the toughest of storms.

The most important thing about me is: I do NOT know all the answers and will not presume to tell someone what to do with their lives. My strength is in my ability to help people find their own answers. I listen, I question, I explore meanings and reflect back - this process allows for discovery, insight, and change. I don't judge, I am accepting and supportive; My passion is to help people find the strengths already inside of them.
