I am a licensed professional counselor with a M.A. in Clinical and Counseling Psychology from Chestnut Hill College. In addition to being an EMDR practitioner, I am also trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy and have co-led adult and adolescent groups in various settings. My practice as a certified yoga teacher (200 hr) also informs my clinical work.
I specialize in treating trauma, anxiety and mood disorders. I believe our lives are as rich as the characters and narratives that we find in literature, film, and art. However, stress, anxiety, depression, and trauma tend to mask our awareness of this richness. Yet, it is the struggles themselves that help us to change and grow. Understanding this paradox is one way to find meaning and purpose in life. My clients benefit from slowing down, tuning into their inner wisdom, and finding solutions to the stress, emotional pain, or emptiness they experience.
