I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in CT working in the behavioral health field for almost 20 years. I am passionate about helping others overcome the struggles they are facing. I believe in being genuine with my clients. I use compassion, life experience as well as professional training to help my clients feel comfortable in therapy and ultimately achieve their goals.
I specialize in:
  • anxiety 
  • stress management 
  • self-esteem building 
  • trauma (EMDR trained)
  • addiction.
  • Integrative Health and Wellness

I have worked in community-based programs for many years doing both individual and group therapy. I have worked with clients with many different mental health and substance abuse diagnoses, different cultural and socio-economic backgrounds. I have been certified in crisis intervention and have also worked in the behavioral health department at two large insurance companies. My extensive work experience has prepared me for my endeavor into private practice. 
I understand how difficult it can be to take the first step in starting therapy. You may feel vulnerable, scared, or overwhelmed, especially if this is your first time. You may question whether therapy will even work for you. You aren't alone in these feelings. 
I want this to be a satisfying experience where you can feel safe to open up and be heard. I can assure you, what you share with me will be secure and respected. I have been on the other side of the fence before and understand how important it is to feel understood and accepted. 
Together we will explore all aspects of your life and work on finding balance between your mind, body, and spirit. We will explore how you deal with stress, your strengths and weaknesses, your values and beliefs, your sleep habits and eating routines, exercise needs, family and social life, and more. There may be areas in your life that need healing in order for you to have peace and find serenity. We all have an inner critic, some are louder than others. Together we will learn strategies to silence the critic and change your life for the better. I want to help you overcome your anxieties, build your confidence and self-esteem, and achieve your goals. 
You will learn relaxation and breathing exercises to use when your anxious feelings are taking control of you. You will learn mindfulness to keep your anxiety at bay. We will explore the ways you think and perceive situations and how they impact your mood and self-esteem. We will look at your beliefs, how they came to be, and how they may be hindering you more than helping you. You will learn to be compassionate and kinder to yourself. allowing you to achieve serenity within yourself.
I will provide psychoeducation to allow for more understanding of how your mind works, why anxiety seems to worsen in certain situations, how triggers affect your brain and how to change your perception of situations, which will improve your anxiety and outlook on situations.  
I am EMDR trained. EMDR is a treatment modality primarily used to effectively treat trauma/PTSD, but can also be utilized in many other areas of distress. You will be able to reprocess the memories of your trauma so that you can move on from them and live your best life.  
I would be happy to talk with you for a free 15 minute consultation so we can learn a little about each other and determine if we would make a good team in your journey to peace and happiness.
