It takes courage and self-awareness to begin the counseling process. I take a person-centered, strengths-based approach, which means therapeutic work will be collaborative and I will listen without judgment. I believe most people in the world could benefit from talking to a therapist once in awhile!
Maybe you're feeling anxious or more down than usual, struggling with a recent loss, or having difficulty with relationships. I offer two services - individual and couples therapy. Individual therapy can help you to learn about yourself, develop the skills to deal with difficult relationships, and make many other positive changes. If you're a couple struggling with conflict, feeling disconnected or other issues, couples therapy can help, too.
Areas of expertise: Relationships, anxiety, college students/young adults, Perinatal Mental Health
Narrative therapy techniques, CBT, ACT, existential and feminist theory inform my work. I'm a licensed mental health counselor in New York State and Rhode Island with a MS in Mental Health Counseling from St. John Fisher College and a B.A. in English Literature from SUNY Geneseo.
I look forward to working with you!

Reaching out to a therapist can feel like a big step. I get it. I don't bite! Feel free to call if you want to chat a bit and see if this might be a good fit for you. I can accept Aetna insurance - otherwise, I offer a sliding fee scale.
