Due to the current COVID 19 pandemic, all therapy services will be provided online indefinitely. Hopefully we'll be able to go back to in person sessions soon in MA, but until then, we'll be using a HIPAA compliant platform to conduct sessions. I can serve clients who reside in MA, FL, CA, CT, and AZ., but have NO current openings. Contact me for more info.
Through therapy, our relationship will become a gateway to a new path… one that will ultimately transform the pain you feel into a part of your story that shows your strength & resiliency. Let's deal with feelings. Let's understand our emotions. Let's understand how to create change in your life.
I have special expertise in treating many women's issues - everything from emotional pain stemming from reproductive health challenges to dealing with infidelity in a relationship. I really love helping new moms that are dealing with postpartum anxiety and depression. I also love helping women heal their relationship with food and their bodies.
As a female therapist in the Boston area, I understand how life can affect us differently. Problems like unplanned pregnancies, chronic illnesses, overwhelming anxiety, eating issues, postpartum depression - it's stuff like this that can really have an impact on how you feel. It’s not always easy to talk about the problems that are keeping us up at night, but counseling is one place where it’s ok to say anything, and to truly be heard and helped. Don’t wait to decide to change your life - schedule an intake appointment today!
We work on your goals together, understanding your story, helping you become more connected in life. Many of my clients enjoy coming to my Waltham office, where counseling is done in a private, residential setting-BUT right now we're completely online doing telehealth in a safe, convenient way! If the weather is good, we can even take a walk. You will experience a safe, empathic environment to share, learn and grow through our work together. Healing through making changes in your life isn’t always easy, but therapy can be a supportive place to start! You are the expert of you, and I want to help you use your intuition to be the best badass "you" you can be. I look forward to embarking on this journey with you...
...a journey that results in a healthier, happier you!

This document may change as I learn more and grown. I am committed to the necessary work of anti-racism in myself, my community, and my work. I do come from generations of white privilege, which was unearned & contributes to the roots of racism in this country.
I am happy to discuss the steps I am taking with you to become anti-racist, including recognizing it in myself and addressing it immediately. Racism, oppression, and microaggressions exist everywhere, and they exist in the world of therapy.
Therapy needs to do better, and I need to do better. Systemic racism impacts our humanity, and when we "other", we effectively dehumanize people in order to stay in a system that allows white people, and myself as a white woman, to flourish on this unequal ground.
I am committed to understanding the intersectionality of ableism, racism, sizeism, sexism, homophobia, & transphobia and the therapeutic environment. Racism and hate has no place in an environment designed for healing, and I welcome discussing how anti-racism can impact therapy.
Here are just a few ways I am addressing my lifelong journey of antiracism:
*Supporting BIPOC small businesses of all kinds
*Engaging in my own therapeutic supervision designed to educate and dismantle structural racism within my work and myself
*Participate in ongoing trainings and workshops in antiracism & allyship
*Donate to causes that support racial equality, social justice and systemic change
*Engage in and welcome challenges that promote my growth in this area
*Hold myself and colleagues accountable when racism is occuring
I hope this is helpful and useful, and I actively stand against racism, hate, and intolerance in all its forms. Please let me know if you have questions or wish to discuss this more.
