Rhode Island may be small, but it has big attractions, such as its beautiful shorelines. In life, you can sometimes feel small and insignificant. However, you are destined for great things. All you have to do is find your purpose. 

A counselor can help you find your purpose and allow you stand among the crowd despite your size.

In addition, you are not defined by any problems that you have. Working from the reality base is just like it sounds. That is, we have to...

I do not believe in a one size fits all model, and will pull from different perspectives and approaches to utilize interventions that best fit your needs. We will work together to develop a treatment plan with achievable goals that makes sense for you. My training and experience as a yoga instructor guides my interventions in being keenly aware of the mind/body connection and the impact of emotional health on the physical body. I ...

I am a licensed mental health counselor, but I don’t consider myself your “typical” therapist. I like to tailor my style to each individual client and family. My background, experience, and faith allow me a certain level of cultural awareness, which I believe goes a long way in successfully working with families across generations. My main goal is to help individuals/families work through whatever the current crisis may be, but also teach or enhance skills to help maintain stability. My counseling approach is individualized, as no one style or approach is right fo...
