About My Clients

Have you ever felt stuck, ashamed, embarrassed, guilty, stressed, traumatized or overwhelmed? You are not alone. I enjoy working in collaboration with clients in recognizing this, as well as identifying their strengths, working through past events, thoughts, feelings or behaviors, that they have felt have held them back from experiencing a full life today. Each client has a unique set of amazing qualities just waiting for a chance to shine; let us work together in a safe space and explore yours!

My Background and Approach

I enjoy providing therapy for clients experiencing effects of past histories of developmental and/or complex trauma, anxiety, PTSD, stress/burnout, self-esteem & interpersonal issues. I offer a strengths-based, trauma-informed, compassionate approach to assist you in working toward your goals, using EMDR, CBT, and Mindfulness (in conjunction with other techniques, tailored to meet each individual client's needs). I really enjoy using a wholesome (mind/body/spirit) wellness approach to help my clients learn to be who they would like to believe they are, rather than who their traumas/experiences have told them they are. I graduated Summa Cum Laude with an MS in Clinical Mental Health, BS in Exercise Physiology & am an LPC/LMHC who can meet your needs from anywhere in the states of CT or MA, as I am using virtual counseling and LOVE it! It is just as effective as in person sessions, but you have the convenience of being in a confidential place of your choice.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that each and every person is created whole, meaning you are not broken - this is an emotional response to a prior experience in your life. There is nothing "wrong with us," but we are made to believe there is, through our life experiences/traumas that have told us we are unworthy, completely responsible/to blame, unsafe, etc. We don't have to "keep pushing," but we have received the impactful message of perfection at sometime in our life. These unhelpful core beliefs, alongside unwelcome symptomatic behaviors, trauma responses and not so great thoughts about ourselves, have been formed from our prior experiences/perceptions of experiences. This means that we have the power to CHANGE them and GROW. We have the power to HEAL with therapeutic support and guidance. After working through my own mental health difficulties earlier in life, and seeking treatment, I KNOW you can obtain freedom from what you're currently going through/feeling. I want to help you achieve this & more!
