Goodbye 2022, Hello Private Practice!

I am excited to announce that I am embarking on my new, virtual Private Practice, opening in January 2023!  

New Offerings

Offering a calm and comfortable environment for Mental Health Counseling sessions, Massachusetts-based clients (ages 18+) are able to receive support to embrace a new way of being and living their lives.  

Also offering Emotional Wellness Yoga Instruction, sessions are available to clients worldwide, for those who want to explore mind-body connections, and bring a more joyful, calming, and mindful presence to their lives.


Whether working through life transitions and adjustments, past trauma, complex family dynamics, communication challenges, and/or symptoms of anxiety/depression, I believe that my therapeutic work with clients will elicit benefits in their life. I believe all people hold the ability to shift challenges and are capable of making changes (big and small!).  

Even if clients can’t see it yet, I will hold hope and direction for them.  Allowing all my clients to heal at their own pace, I believe in the power of the authentic therapeutic relationship.  Many people need a little support and guidance along their journey, and that’s where I come in!

I can be a sounding board, listening ear, and therapeutic partner in problem-solving.  Utilizing a safe and supportive approach, I offer suggestions and guidance, encouraging clients to find the best-fit path for their journey.  

Clients have said I am empathetic, compassionate, and understanding, and offer a fresh perspective on challenges.
