Supportive and Down-To-Earth

With many years as a clinical therapist at mental health organizations in New York and Rhode Island, I have had the honor of working with a wide variety of people facing extensive challenges.  As such, I have very solid experience providing psychotherapy to clients struggling with:

  • depression
  • anxiety
  • codependence
  • deep shame, self-loathing
  • low self-esteem
  • painful relationships
  • grief and loss
  • sexual assault/sexual abuse
  • domestic violence/physical abuse
  • trauma/ptsd symptoms
  • body image issues (especially as relates to trauma histories and/or familial and cultural expectations)
  • life transitions
  • lack of assertiveness and difficulty setting boundaries
  • loneliness and social isolation
  • social phobia anxiety
  • highly sensitive personalities (HSP)
  • behavioral addictions (compulsive overeating, bulimia, food addiction, sex addiction)
  • substance abuse

Further, I welcome work with clients to explore issues related to personal identity and growth such as:

  • creativity
  • identifying purpose
  • spirituality
  • sexuality
  • gender roles
  • self-definition and identity

I have also created and guided multiple psychoeducational groups on issues such as Wellness and Self-Care, Female Empowerment and Identity, Life Goals Identification, Shame Resilience, Trauma and Addictions, and Expressive Journaling.
