Since receiving my doctoral degree from the William James College (formerly Massachusetts School of Professional Psychology) in 1995, I have practiced clinical psychology in a variety of settings for 19 years.
I began my career working with children and families. Many families are struggling with stressors such as the loss of a loved one or the cycle of abuse. My commitment to providing the best and briefest therapies was inspired by these families’ moving stories.
I also worked for many years in a college counseling setting where young people are making the move into adulthood often with burdens such as past abuse or family stress.
Since beginning a private practice in 2009, I have treated children, teens, adults and families. I integrate a variety of therapeutic approaches to help my clients heal and grow.

Over the past five years, I have sought out training in a variety of innovative treatment approaches. In 2009, I completed training in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy which focuses on using the body’s wisdom to release stored negative emotions.
I became an EMDR practitioner in 2010, a world-renowned brief treatment for trauma that has helped me reach many children, teenagers and adults.
More recently I have explored David Grand’s Brainspotting, a powerful therapy that allows rapid yet gentle access to negative memories and emotions. As of 2013, I am Level 1 and Level 2 trained.
I find Internal Family Systems (IFS) a effective therapy which focuses on integrating our inner selves for emotional harmony. As of 2013, I am Level 1 and Level 2 trained. Another therapy that focuses on healing wounded parts is Developmental Needs Meeting Strategy (DNMS) and I completed Level 1 in 2014.
I continue to learn about how abuse and trauma affect the body, heart, and mind. I completed a two day training in ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) in 2015. Most recently I completed an intensive 30 hour training in DBT and I am excited to incorporate that approach into my practice.
