The goal of my practice is helping individuals, couples and families regain a sense of balance and purpose in their lives. Reconnecting the body to the mind, changing behavioral patterns and discovering how your strengths can be better utilized are strong components in my private practice. The issues I am best suited to address are anxiety, weight and body image, OCD, eating disorders, lifestyle changes and couples communication.
With a positive, solution-focused approach, my integrated work combines the knowledge I have gained through two graduate programs, clinical agency experience and private practice as well as through continued education and exposure to new and innovative practice techniques.
My practice is based on mutual respect, honesty, and open communication. I believe that a confidential and caring therapeutic relationship coupled with the benefit of my skills,training, and life experience makes for a highly successful therapy client. my clients report increased clarity of purpose and improved relationships.
Since 1998 I have had a variety of experiences which I bring into every encounter in my practice.  My training as a Health Educator, Behavior Therapist, and most recently my degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling allows me to draw from a wide variety of disciplines in addressing individuals needs.  
My areas of competency are in assisting individuals, couples and families in addressing a variety of issues with the most experience in working with those dealing with stress and anxiety, depression, couples communication and relations, disruptive/maladaptive child disorders, and weight loss/eating disorders/body image.
I currently work out of Bay Coast Behavioral and AQAL Therapies, a small practice on the east side of Providence.  I have several years expereince as a health coach and am a licensed mental health counselor under the Rules and Regulations for Licensing Act in Rhode Island.
 My approach is a integrally informed, pulling from a variety of tools I have studied over the course of my work experience and training which allows me to assess and to create a plan which is completely unique to each individual I work with.  

Individual plans utilize a integrative blend of Applied Behavioral Analysis, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectic Behavior Therapy, Gestalt Methodology and Solution Focused Brief Therapy supported by a strong focus in neuroscience, mindfulness and active lifestyle modification plans.

AQAL stands for "all quadrants, all levels, all lines, all states and all types" which is an effective way of Assessing five major ways that we develop, perceive and interact with both the internal and external world. Utilizing this approach allows the development of a map, marking where one is, where one would like to be, and the challenges that lie between the two. Identifying these elements allows for the development of a unique plan or series of steps required to achieve identified goals giving those worked with access to that very specific knowledge and skills required in addressing challenges with an increased rate of success.
