5 Wake Robin Road, Lincoln, RI, 02865
Your privacy is my primary concern. Coming to therapy outside of the city is a way to address highly personal matters, with a caring professional. I work with your needs with interest and enthusiasm, starting you on a path to progress.

Every human being struggles to find meaning in life and to learn how to better love oneself and others. This is essential work. Often we suffer when we have lost sight of who we are and what we most want out of life. Therapy can help you find yourself again and provide safety and direction in times of difficulty. At its best, it can help you recover a vibrant sense of joy in being alive.
For anyone new to therapy: Take the plunge. Interview perspective therapists. Therapy works best when you are comfortable and feel connected to the therapist. Don't let fear or a lack of motivation stop you from finding the right person and taking a step toward feeling better.

Life brings stress and challenge. My focus is on holistic well-being through helping individuals restore balance in their lives. I combine over 20 years of experience in a variety of social service settings with a firm belief that every human being has infinite potential, though sometimes undiscovered. Identifying strengths and building upon them to create a foundation that sustains the challenges life offers is my focus.

For individuals experiencing depression, anxiety, and/or adjusting to a new situation: Transitions are a standard part of life, but that does not make the process an easy or comfortable one. Talking about the issues, the stumbling blocks, and the obstacles can make them more surmountable. Whether it’s adjusting to school, to a changing relationship, or to a difficult work experience, people can benefit from talking with a therapist and getting support.
9 South Angell Street, Providence, RI, 02906
I work with people who are feeling overwhelmed by personal problems, depression, and anxiety. I’m interested in learning about you and helping you explore whatever issues and problems you’d like to address. In my experience, as you begin to feel supported by me and work on finding out who you are and what you want, you’ll develop your own personal and creative solutions.

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!

I always feel honored and privileged to be allowed into my clients-into their depths with their trust. I believe that learning to be a therapist is a never-ending process, and that if I am asking my clients to be curious, I need to practice that in my own life. I have extensive training in many areas and bring them all into my work, tailoring the experience to each individual and couple. I will continue to acquire more tools, refine those I have, and keep digging deeper in my practice to meet people where they are, to hear what they want, and to challenge them to move towards more fulfillment. I want everyone to feel I am walking alongside them, working toward healing and beyond.
For individuals: There are many reasons to begin therapy, but typically people come to see me when they are feeling stuck or when life’s challenges feel overwhelming. We can collaborate to find new ways to look at stuck places that are internal (emotional, trauma, destructive thoughts, anxiety, depression, etc.) and/or external (relationships, work, financial, etc.).
For couples: Relationships are hard work and we all need help at times in navigating through stuck places. I am excited about emotionally focused couples therapy because it provides a real, emperically validated road map to getting unstuck and moving towards a deeper connection with your partner.

Are you having problems with relationships or communication? Are you feeling depressed, anxious or just plain stuck? Are you struggling with painful experiences from the past that lead you into thinking negatively about yourself and/or cycles of behavior you wish you could break out of? I may be able to help you. Therapy is not magic. It's a human, transparent, nonjudgmental process where we work together to increase your self-understanding and ability to effect positive change in a way that is meaningful to you.

Welcome! Making the choice to begin therapy is a wonderfully brave and self-affirming decision. As a therapist, I try to bring a sense of both safety and change to your healing journey. Our work together will focus on helping you connect to your inner aliveness while at the same time improving your practical skills. We will work on slowing down so you can really find yourself and experience being seen, heard, and understood. And, you'll learn the skills and strategies needed to effectively improve your mood, life, and relationships.

I believe that all of us can help ourselves once we have the tools and resources to do so. Through practice, commitment, and support, anyone can work through life stressors and transitions. Sometimes we need extra encouragement, and sometimes we need to learn those self-help skills in order to be able to help ourselves through a tough time. I believe in your inner strength and resilience and see my role as teacher/coach and sometimes cheerleader. I aim to help you discover how you want your life to be and then to help you figure out how to get there.
