I am an experienced therapist committed to fostering a safe and meaningful process for you to encounter and work on the challenges you face. I'm here to accompany, guide, assist, and nurture opportunities for you to heal and grow into a more grounded version of yourself.

In particular if you identify as an artist, creative, nerd, contemplative, or spiritual soul, come see me! I am also familiar with mindfulness and Buddhism spaces, and like to use the affirming qualities of these to meet clients wherever they find themselves. My clients struggle with anxiety, depression, change, insecurity, uncertainty; all of which can be difficult to handle alone. You would like understanding, input or feedback, support, maybe new skills. When we meet together, I try to make our visits safe, understandable, and meaningful for you. Therapy can seem really intimidating, but therapy can be a wonderful and liberating process. This is a no-judgment zone. You can contact me for a no-charge consult to see if we might be a fit to work together. Currently, flex or fixed time available Thursday and Saturday. In person and video available. Beverly location.
