I am a licensed mental health counselor with a Master’s in Counseling Psychology from Northeastern University. Since graduation, I have worked with children, adolescents, and adults in individual, group, and family therapy settings, providing support and diagnostic clarification in areas including trauma, anxiety, depression, LGBTQ issues, and risk for psychosis. I believe in a collaborative, relational approach to counseling, also often incorporating mindfulness practices and elements of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.

While I believe every person is the ultimate expert in themselves, I think therapy provides a powerful opportunity for partnership and guidance. In a safe, nonjudgmental space, people are able to explore new elements of their lives and selves, to identify goals and values, and to examine the ways current patterns are either supporting or hindering those goals. My job as a therapist is to help create that safe space with you, to encourage you along your process of exploration, and to provide reflection and guidance where it may be helpful. I believe everyone has strengths and unique, valid experiences —in therapy, I am committed to making sure that you feel heard and that your perspective is valuable.
