If you’ve ever been in a dark place, then you know that your first instinct is to look for the light.  In life, we often encounter situations that lead us into periods of darkness. It's common to find ourselves trapped in these moments, struggling to find an exit on our own. I believe each of us possess the ability to reignite and illuminate our light again; at times, we simply require the support of others to do so and that’s where therapy comes in. I enjoy watching my clients take control of their lives and discover the strengths and competencies they’ve had all along. I believe in collaborative solutions that foster healing and growth within each individual, family or couple.


I am a Marital and Family Therapist who values intentional living and mindfulness. These principles guide my work, helping clients navigate their paths toward healthier and more fulfilling relationships. As a trained structural therapist, I look beyond individual symptoms to the broader dynamics at play within families and relationships. I use this framework to understand the structures that influence behavior and emotional well-being, and from there, we can work to reshape them. My counseling style is warm, interactive and compassionate. My approach is strength based and combines cognitive-behavioral, and solution-focused therapy. In addition, I consider myself to be an LGBTQ+ affirming therapist.

My academic journey has been a blend of science and the human mind. I earned my Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy from Fairfield University, graduating with honors. Prior to this, I completed a Bachelor’s degree in Biology, with a minor in psychology from Western Connecticut State University. I believe my educational background gives me a unique ability to understand the interconnectedness of the mind and body in therapy. 

Everyone has a unique reason that brings them to therapy. Whatever that reason is, I look forward to helping you find greater fulfilment and meaning in your connections with others as well as in life itself.
