I believe that therapy is one of the best investments and gifts that you can give yourself. Whether you are contemplating a life change, pondering ways to improve your mental health and wellness, or already in the midst of your next adventure, I am excited to help you process, explore, and energize you during every step of your journey.
I use an integrative approach that combines Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy techniques to ensure that clients have countless resources while exploring personal growth. I also enjoy incorporating animal therapy, mindful movement, traveling, and the outdoors during sessions to inspire individuals.

I believe I am a capable general psychiatrist, but with 26 years of specialized practice and academic work in deafness and hearing loss, I feel I have specific things I can offer those patients who need them: an understanding of what it means for one's body to change or to be different from that of others; an appreciation for the layered complexity of experience, from biological (say, anxiety) to cultural (say, a culture's specific expectations for what should and shouldn't make one anxious); an appreciation of child psychiatric conditions that affect adults too—attention deficit, learning disability, autism spectrum; a special awareness of the difficulty of establishing oneself as an independent human being; and, an interest and expertise in unraveling complex diagnostic puzzles and their associated medication choices.

Self-discovery and self-recovery is a journey, it takes courage. Starting from birth we enter life with curiosity about ourselves and our capabilities; about the world around us, and how we fit in. Sometimes this journey is seamless, sometimes we get bumps and bruises. Yet regardless of where we are, we can all use some help on our Insightful Direction. It is my great privilege to work with anyone who is eager to understand why they are the way they are and what we can collaboratively work on to feel whole and understood.

Do you currently feel lost in your relationship? Has infidelity severed your connection, or have you stopped communicating the way you used to?  Do you no longer feel like you understand each other, or are your fights becoming more intense and frequent? Did you answer yes to any of these questions?  If so, I can help.

I am passionate about this work and as a result, have focused my entire practice on working with couples. I utilize a combination of evidenced based approaches (Gottman Method and Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy – EFT) to help partners identify their negative cycles and navigate their relationship in a new way which leads to deeper connection and the ability to manage conflicts more effectively.

I would describe my style as direct, but compassionate. The truth is, therapy is work and a lot of that happens outside of the office. My expectation when working with a couple is that they will do what is required of them at home and not expect to simply put the effort in during the 90-minute session.

It is very important to remember when looking for a therapist that couples therapy is truly a different style than individual work.  Unfortunately, many clinicians do not have the specialized training to know how to effectively work with couples. I truly believe more harm than good can be done when clinicians try to do couples therapy as if they are doing individual therapy with two people in the room. I cannot emphasize enough the importance of asking any therapist you speak with what specific training he/she has in working with couples. Most graduate programs do not focus on it, or in some cases, include it at all.

I offer 30-minute complimentary sessions for couples who are considering working with me in my office on the East Side of Providence. I think it is crucial that the chemistry is right between myself and BOTH partners. If it is not, therapy is unlikely to be successful. We will use this session to determine if I am a good fit for your needs and proceed from there.

For clients such as upper level executives and professional athletes who are looking for a more discreet, convenient option for couples therapy, I offer sessions in your home, at a premium.  For clients interested in this service, I offer a 1-hour complimentary session at which point we will go over what this service entails, including the fee structure.

If you want your relationship to change and you want to reconnect with your partner, reach out now to set up a consultation.  The best time to take the first step was yesterday, the next best time is right now!

Good therapy requires the trust that comes from feeling respected and understood. My clients - many of whom have histories of childhood trauma and stubborn, treatment resistant depression - tell me that they appreciate my calm, kind, straightforward style. I listen, talk, interpret, untangle, drawing on my professional and life experience to address your individual needs and priorities. Therapy is serious but it doesn’t have to be grim. Together we will identify goals, overcome obstacles and help you make positive change.

For me, becoming a therapist required a commitment to my own growth and healing. This, I think, is the most important thing to know about me. Through the process you are about to engage in, I found work that engages me and allows me to feel more myself. Whether you struggle with existential angst, relational tension, depression, anxiety or the trials of life transition, I will collaborate with you to figure out the best way through... for YOU. Training in the theory and practice of social work, psychoanalysis and yoga inform my approach with individuals and couples.
As a social worker I believe family, organizational and community systems contribute to and inhibit wellbeing. As a psychodynamic clinician I believe your psyche is complicated. At times we take action based on what we believe is solid reasoning. Later, we may discover hidden motivations.
Finally, as a trained Kripalu Yoga instructor I believe in the value of presence. No matter what stressors exist - external or internal - if we can find our feet, find our breath, often, we can figure out how to move forward. I look forward to hearing from you.

In my practice, by face to face sessions or by using online confidential therapy, I work with clients to feel comfortable and to form a bond, based on trust, that will foster a relaxed positive therapeutic interaction. It is important to me that, from the very first session, the client can communicate his or her story and feels heard, so that I can understand the presenting issues, communicate hope, and formulate mutually agreeable goals to achieve in our work together. I have over 18 years of experience treating clients suffering from relationship or financial issues, depression, anxiety, addiction, life transitions such acculturation, job change, or retirement. I enjoy working with individual adults and couples, am fluent in Spanish, and have a good communication understanding of Portuguese. Based on client's presenting issues, my treatment approach varies from concrete problem solving, using mindfulness, or on working to recognize and speak for one's parts following the Internal Family Systems, (IFS), model, EMDR, Hypnosis and/or psychodynamic approaches. I am sensitive to diversity, multicultural, and adjustment situations.

Therapy is a process and a process I believe in. I value authenticity, humor and human connection in my clinical work and believe that these are essential elements of healing. Through our conversations, we will explore, discover and process how your past can influence the present and future and hopefully deepen your understanding of the self and increase awareness of how you are and how you would like to be.

My clients inspire me. They are brave and real and they show up even when life gets hard. They want to get to know themselves in a deep and meaningful way and by doing that, they live the life they imagine. Some of my clients have experienced loss. Many times that means the death loss of a loved one but sometimes it means the loss of a meaningful relationship, or job, or identity. Some of my clients want to become more confident and feel empowered to live a life that is full to them. Other clients of mine have had childhoods that they are now recognizing have impacted their life and would like to look at those experiences.

I am a licensed clinical psychologist and really value the relationship that we build together. I will be real with you in the room in the hopes that we can have an authentic conversation about what is really going on in your life. I will not be a blank slate but instead will ask you great questions, laugh with you, support you, and be honest with you.

If we decide to work together, you won’t just get a smile and nod therapist or a blank slate. You will get a real person in the room with you. Yes, a highly trained professional but more importantly, a human being who believes in empathy, resilience and the power of human connection. We will work together to create a treatment plan that works for you.
