My Approach to Helping

Accepting new clients! I am licensed in both RI and MA. I work with young adults, adults, and seniors. I spent several years working in an oncology clinic, supporting clients and their caregivers dealing with cancer diagnoses as well as in private practice. I enjoy working with clients who are going through adjustment difficulties, transitional challenges, troubles with relationships, and folks with LGBTQIA+ concerns. I work with individuals who identify as ACOA (adult children of alcoholics), and people struggling with perfectionism and procrastination. I help individuals with boundary-setting and direct communication. I hope you'll consider me an ally.

I also see clients coping with grief and loss, and with those struggling with anxiety and self-esteem concerns. I believe that seeking therapy takes courage and that clients need connection, trust, and a safe space for their innermost thoughts and feelings. Therapy can be challenging work, but with it, comes the freedom to more fully enjoy life.

I assist my clients with identifying strengths, processing emotions, and reviewing old patterns and beliefs while looking at new and different ways of examining life. Clients will work with me to develop healthier coping skills, increase self-awareness, and find the ability to express themselves more fully, and learn techniques for self-love and forgiveness.
