My approach to therapy is centered on compassion and creating a judgment-free space of safety and support. I assist clients in finding ways to reduce their symptoms and distress and identify solutions for themselves. Working with the integration of body, mind, and spirit, we can release beliefs that no longer serve us, reduce feelings of distress, and find new ways of experiencing joy and a sense of meaning and purpose at any stage of life or health.

I have always been very sensitive to the suffering of others, and also an introvert so becoming a social worker and then a psychotherapist meets my need and desire to help alleviate some of the suffering in the world.
My family, climate change activism, yoga (I was certified as a 200 hr yoga teacher)!
I enjoy meditation.
Connecticut Foodshare, because I hate the idea that anyone in Connecticut goes to bed hungry.
I like walking in the woods and practicing yoga.
I have one dog and one cat now. My favorite pet story is when I was living in Argentina and my cat got out through a window. I posted reward notices all over the neighborhood, and someone found him at the bottom of a dumbwaiter shaft, two stories down. Two guys lowered themselves down on a rope, threw a blanket over him, and brought him back to me. I was happy to have my cat back, and they were happy to have the generous reward!
