I believe in meeting people where they are at.

My Therapy Style

I enjoy working with individuals needing support to decide whether they want to make a change or not, and exploring challenges and barriers with such. I believe in examining thoughts that can keep people stuck and developing more productive ways of thinking resulting in positive behavior change. I offer support, validation, and person, couple, and family-centered care. I believe in meeting people where they are at, learning if this is where they want to be, and developing an understanding of future goals.

Education & Training

MA - Marriage and Family Therapy, Fairfield University

Get to Know Me

Why did you become a mental health professional?

I always wanted to help people so I first majored in physical therapy. I then attended a Social Psychology class which greatly piqued my interest and switched my major to Psychology, graduating with a Bachelor's Degree in such.

What is one thing you do daily that supports your well-being?

I enjoy hiking, reading, running, museums, art galleries, and sitting in coffee shops. I completed my first marathon in November 2023 in NYC, running in support of Shatterproof, a nonprofit organization.

Favorite organization/non-profit?

Shatterproof because they focus their work on reducing the stigma of addiction.
