By learning Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and mindfulness techniques, and by focusing on overall health and wellness, my clients often see noticeable improvement within a handful of sessions.
Move to the next level in your relationships. Learn how to be more forgiving of yourself and others, and to face whatever relationship challenges you have with skill and grace. Communication is the key, and a third party is often necessary to overcome lingering hurdles. Whether you are moving toward reconciliation, separation, or just wanting to take your relationship to a higher plane, couples therapy may be the best investment of time and money you ever made.
Find more peace in your mind and at home by learning how to overcome stuck relationship patterns, as well as how to communicate freely with openness and honesty. Whether you feel stuck in communicating with your teenagers, or a big stressor has entered your lives, getting some outside support can shift the dynamic and give you the skills you need to move on to a new chapter together.
I have worked to help people heal and overcome their eating disorders for more than a decade. Whether it be undereating, overeating, emotional eating, or some other concern, don't hesitate to reach out for assistance. Our eating patterns often reach back to early childhood, or may even have been passed down from earlier generations, so are therefore deeply ingrained. It often takes a village to heal from such patterns. I would be happy to be part of that village with you.
My style is direct and compassionate, and I bring warmth and humor to each session. My goal is to ask the right questions to help you find your own answers. I believe that by fully listening, and providing objective and caring support, I can gently guide you into finding the strength you need to make the changes you want to make in your life. I choose to be a social worker because I believe that counseling can help maximize your life. Let me show you how you can take your life, your health, and your relationships to the next level. I look forward to meeting with you.
I have been a practicing social worker since 2006.
I hold a B.A. from Hampshire College and a Masters in Social Work from the University of Southern Maine.
As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I am licensed to treat a wide range of psychological and emotional issues and I have extensive experience in family, couple's, and individual therapy.
Prior to being an outpatient therapist, my other professional experiences include doing hospice work, providing group therapy, and working with adolescents and their families in the school system.
The first step to getting help is to pick up the phone, which can sometimes be the hardest part. Don't waste any more time struggling alone with old patterns. Call or email today to inquire about an appointment.
