My Approach to Helping

I am a deep listener and am committed to following my clients as they ride the sometimes roller-coaster-like pathways of their lives. A true companion, I accompany them on their trip for as long as they wish me to. I generate a feeling of deep acceptance and provide an environment in which people feel seen, protected, empowered, and loved. My clients and I are collaborative partners in dealing with their present challenges, breaking free of self-defeating patterns, healing old wounds, retrieving lost parts of themselves, and growing into their fullest selves. In addition to psychotherapy, I also offer structured, Solution-Focused life coaching. We begin by envisioning what your life will be like when your problems or concerns are no more, then we work together toward actualizing this vision one doable step at a time.

More Info About My Practice

I treat adults, children, families, and couples. My psychotherapy training includes: Person-Centered therapy, Buddhist psychology, Gestalt therapy, Focusing-oriented therapy, and Solution-Focused therapy.

I am currently doing teletherapy and can take insurance clients from anywhere in Massachusetts.

For psychotherapy, I take several insurances as well as private pay. Only private pay is available for life coaching.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I work with many types of issues, including depression, anxiety, addictions, trauma, and relationships. I came to psychotherapy from a background in writing, photography, and teaching and have particular expertise in working with artists, people interested in discovering or rediscovering their creative selves, and career reinvention.
