Seeking therapy can feel like a challenging step, but it is the first step towards healing and growth. I specialize in trauma treatment, where I provide a safe environment of support and encouragement for all of my clients. I work with children, adolescents, adults, and couples who are experiencing difficulty with relationships, anxiety/depression, and grief, among other challenges. I provide the opportunity to explore healthy changes to foster overall mental wellness. My therapeutic style encompasses a broad range of techniques, with an emphasis on an attachment and a psychodynamic approach. I believe that clients are the experts of their own experiences. 

I have found that developing an individualized approach is the most effective way in meeting a client’s needs and goals. Let's work together to create the life you want!

There are as many reasons to engage in counseling as there are types of people in this world. Maybe you have to manage chronic illness. You could be experiencing a life transition such as divorce, children leaving home, or loss of a loved one. Symptoms related to depression, anxiety, or a history of trauma or abuse could be interfering with your daily functioning. Often, people have challenges communicating effectively or managing crises with their spouses or their children. Counseling – sometimes quickly, sometimes with patience and time - can help with the process of stabilizing from the effects of these events, as well as helping us to better understand ourselves and where we belong in our families and communities.

Over the last 25 years, I have done home based family therapy in community mental health centers, been both the owner of and head teacher in a successful yoga studio, have provided outpatient counseling in several agency settings (Family Resources in Woonsocket and Jewish Family Service in Providence, RI), and am now in private practice at The Swansea Center for Psychotherapy. This experience has given me a chance to work with a wide variety of clients who come from diverse backgrounds and have differing challenges and concerns. There is no “one size fits all” in this work. Part of the expertise that I bring to the table lies in helping you to identify the tools, strategies and skills that are most effective in either resolving or decreasing the impact of the problem with which you need assistance.
