Therapists Specializing in Domestic Violence in Rhode Island

Domestic violence involves any type of physical, sexual, or emotional abuse within a relationship or family. Domestic violence can happen to anyone, and it often has a huge impact on the mental and physical health of those who experience it. People who are subjected to, under the threat of, or have witnessed domestic violence may struggle with anxiety, depression, trauma symptoms, and/or substance abuse.

If you or someone you know is at risk of harm, safety is the first priority. Having the support of a trusted therapist during the process of planning how to leave can be of great benefit. Once you are safe, therapy can help you heal from the psychological effects of domestic violence. Though people react in different ways when faced with stressful and potentially dangerous situations, many providers take a trauma-informed approach to therapy.

The therapists in Rhode Island below can help you work through your experiences, develop coping strategies, and heal. Therapists have been vetted by the Zencare team for their expertise in domestic violence and the provision of clinically rigorous, quality care.

I work with people who are feeling overwhelmed by personal problems, depression, and anxiety.

I invite clients into a supportive and interactive atmosphere where they can set the pace of therapy, share and explore different emotions, and experience the importance of truly feeling heard and understood.
Gradually, I help clients develop skills to better manage their upsets, fears, or relational challenges, both past and present. From a mindful perspective, I challenge clients to find and create a ‘half full' mindset, developing an ability to move beyond emotional reactivity and overwhelm.
Regardless of the specific challenges, clients learn to better see the opportunities they have within their circumstances rather than feeling victimized by them. Clients learn to speak and move into a new way of being - one with a renewed sense of possibility, a reduction of fear, and with greater energy, peace, and freedom.

I have designed my practice to reflect more of a concierge model. What this means is that I take on fewer clients, thus allowing me to offer you more availability, flexibility and accessibility. This allows me to extend sessions when needed at no additional cost and schedule last minute appointments if you hit a bump in the road and need additional support. I also offer extremely flexible hours including early morning, late night and weekend appointments - I work around YOUR schedule.

Born of a true love for couples work, I have made it the focus of my practice. You can rest assured that I have the necessary training needed to do this work well and that I am always building on that foundation.

It is important to me that I set couples up for success and that means only working with couples who meet the criteria that seems to be a good fit with my style. I offer a complimentary consultation to determine this. If I feel we would work well together, I will offer you an invitation to move forward and then the two of you will decide privately if you feel I am the clinician you feel comfortable enough with to invite into the most intimate part of your lives. If you do, we will begin the work.

I recognize how much of an honor it is to do this work and hope we can do it together.
