Licensed to Practice in NH and ME

I believe that at its core, therapy is forming a positive relationship, and then using that relationship to motivate and reinforce healing and change. My greatest strength as a therapist is that I care - I care about the clients in my care, their lives, and their futures.

I have worked with adults, children, and families in a variety of settings and have a strong history of helping children and parents adapt to challenges in their lives.  Since 2013 I have enjoyed helping people overcome anxiety, manage depression, and process the things that have happened in their lives.  

My clinical background and training is in behavioral and cognitive behavioral work with a focus on behavioral and mental health and includes working with families and individuals. I have training and experience in treating depression, anxiety, mood disorders, trauma, behavioral and conduct disorders, attention deficit, general transition and adjustment issues, and family conflicts and dynamics.

For me, therapy is a safe place to truly explore the areas of our lives that impact our daily interactions with ourselves and those around us. Sometimes, when we go somewhere new we need a guide, someone who can help us climb the steep mountains safely and maneuver the hard terrain that can come.  My goal as your therapist is to be that guide and help you navigate through the discoveries made throughout the process. Therapy can be emotionally challenging and can bring about vulnerability that is uncomfortable at times but what I hope to create for you is a place where you know your vulnerability will be protected and safe. 
I am a Master’s graduate with my degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and have been working in the mental health field since 2017.  I spent the year before coming to AMH working as a Substance Abuse Counselor working with a variety of individuals. I have worked with clients to address anxiety, depression, trauma, and substance abuse. I hope to provide a comfortable place for you so we can go on the journey that is therapy together.

I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker and I consider myself a "person centered" therapist who believes that the key to having a successful professional relationship is building a strong rapport with my clients. Since obtaining my Master's Degree in Social Work from Boston College in 1996, my career work settings has included community mental health centers, hospital based gero-psychiatric units, emergency services, private practice and residential treatment centers.


I use Mindfulness Based CBT, Insight-Oriented Work, Solution-Focused Therapy, Grief/Loss Work and Psychotherapy with adults in order to assist them in identifying and utilizing their own strengths and skills. Areas of specialty include: Depressive Disorders, Anxiety Disorders and Adjustment Disorders which encompass life changing events and difficulty adapting to new life situations (ie: occupational related stress, chronic medical issues, relationship difficulties, death/dying, memory deficits and dementia).
