In therapy, clients can build tools and skills to bring from the therapy space into everyday life. Therapeutic goals are co-created with clients. I use an integrative approach: I'm trained in Internal Family Systems (IFS), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and Pia Mellody’s Healing Our Core Issues principles. Sessions also incorporate Somatic, body-centered and expressive-based approaches to therapy.
I offer individual therapy for adults as well as couples therapy
Please note: I am conducting all therapy virtually online via zoom
I am a licensed mental health counselor (LMHC) in MA & RI and licensed as a professional counselor (LPC) in CT
During the first couple of therapy sessions, we focus on completing an initial evaluation. We will discuss goals, needs, presenting concerns, and more about your lived experience/identities. Therapy is a collaborative, evolving experience and I welcome and invite feedback and transparency. Initial sessions are a time to discuss what therapy might look like, any questions or concerns, as well as your experience and expectations regarding therapy. This is also the time when you can share more about your story and background! This will also be the time when we both decide if I am the right provider for you.
I enjoy working with individuals of multifaceted backgrounds including but not limited to race, ethnicity, national origin, socioeconomic class, sexual orientation, gender, disability identity. I have particular experience working with individuals who are female-identified and lgbtq+, as well as young adult, teen and postpartum clients.
If we decide that we are a good mutual fit, we will determine our schedule and a regular weekly or biweekly time to meet.
The first session is typically 60 minutes. Following sessions typically last between 45 to 60 minutes.
