She is here to guide clients and shine a light on areas they might not be able to see while offering a safe environment to explore parts of themselves.

Hello!
I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) in Massachusetts who works with children and adults to help them sift through unpleasant emotions, confusing physical symptoms and memories of distressing experiences. Since I started working in the field, I have helped individuals in crisis, families, and students. While each setting may be different, I have found a common thread that people want to feel like they are seen, heard, and connected. I continually strive to help my clients feel that way.

My graduate program gave me the technical skills needed to be an empathic, skilled, and curious counselor, but my undergraduate degree in art taught me how to approach situations in new and creative ways. Talking isn’t the only way to express our thoughts and feelings, and you will find my office full of supplies to get creative in the ways we work through the pain.
