My Approach to Helping

I strive to provide a warm, supportive, nonjudgmental atmosphere where clients are free to explore their difficulties as well as reconnect with and harness their strengths. I aim to create a space where growth, healing, and transformation can occur. I do this by using a client-centered approach, listening kindly, and offering constructive feedback to help clients challenge self-defeating beliefs and behaviors. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is my main theoretical orientation. My goal is to help each individual to access their unique strengths and remove any blockages that are preventing them from attaining their highest state of well-being and becoming their whole selves. I have helped clients to learn skills to better manage stress, as well as to recover from depression and anxiety using a CBT approach. Although CBT is my main orientation, I understand that each person’s needs are unique and I apply other modalities including insight orientated therapy and mindfulness.

I provide both short and longer- term therapy depending on your individual needs. I have specialized experience working with LGBTQI individuals, trans individuals, and Veterans. I am a trained yoga and meditation teacher and use mindfulness-based practices in therapy for clients who may benefit. I am available for a free phone consultation.

More Info About My Practice

More about my background: I have a Master's Degree from Columbia University School of Social Work. I have over 13 years of experience. I completed a six month-long training program in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I teach Cognitive Behavioral Therapy at Simmons College .

Groups: I run an 8 week Yoga and Mindfulness CBT group. This is a short-term, 8 week skills-based group that combines Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) with chair yoga and mindfulness-based practices to help improve mood and increase one's sense of well-being. CBT and yoga have a proven ability to decrease stress, anxiety and depression. By combining both of these modalities, participants will become more aware of triggers to stress, anxiety and depression and will learn the skills to improve their mood.
