I believe that we all hold the innate power to make meaning out of whatever challenges we encounter in our life, and in that power lies the ability to heal, grow, and evolve. As a therapist, I am passionate about supporting my clients as they tap into their own inner resources to embody the best version of themselves through their current life situations. My approach to the therapeutic process contains the belief that all experiences, despite how seemingly hopeless, can be integrated and used for one’s benefit. Curiosity and unconditional positive regard are elements I bring with me as I have the honor of sitting with clients in a therapeutic setting. 

 

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with a background in yoga and meditation. I integrate my training in these areas into my work as interventions, and my personal daily practice contributes to my goal of remaining present with whatever arises in the therapeutic process. I am a lover of dogs, family, and nature, and believe that laughter is one of life’s greatest medicines. 

 

I am experienced in working with children, adolescents, and their families through several years of delivering Intensive In-home Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Services (IICAPS) through the Yale Child Study Center. During this time I also gained experience working with parents, providing individual therapy as well as couples counseling. In addition, I have worked with young adults in college settings where I provided individual therapy in regards to anxiety, depression, suicidality, trauma, grief, and more. I desire to help my clients gain a better understanding of themselves as individuals, as they relate to others, and as they relate to the world. 

 

I received my Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Fairfield University, where I graduated with honors. I hold a 200-hour yoga certification from Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health. I attended the University of Connecticut as an undergrad, where I received a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology.
