My greatest passion as a therapist is to help my clients live a life of satisfaction, a life filled with meaning and joy. As an integrative and holistic therapist, I strive to create an open and caring environment. I help my clients build a strong sense of self-reliance by identifying their priorities and helping them take committed actions towards maintaining their values. I strive to work collaboratively with my clients to develop new solutions to old problems in order to live a richer and more meaningful life.
My therapeutic approach empowers adolescents, teens, and adults to transform their outlook and increase their engagement in life. I have extensive training and experience utilizing evidence based practices such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). These models of treatment are extremely effective in the management of depression, anxiety, mood disorders, and trauma.
I have previously worked as a counselor in middle and high schools as well as in an outpatient hospital setting where I ran wellness self-management and recovery groups for clients with substance abuse disorders. I graduated from University of New Hampshire where I majored in Sociology and then earned my Masters in Social Work from the Silberman School for Social Work at Hunter College in New York City.
