Mission

My goal as a therapist is to help lead others to healing and self discovery. Drawing from  12+ years experience in the mental health and substance abuse field, I currently specialize in helping clients who struggle with various mental health issues as well as addictions. I am strong with Expressive Arts, Faith Based Practice, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing among others. I facilitate groups varying from addictions to expressive arts. We also provide groups for teens and adults utilizing music expressively for topics surrounding mental health and substance abuse related issues. 

Qualifications

In addition to being licensed by the state of Massachusetts and insured as an Independent Mental Health and Alcohol/Drug Counselor, I also possess an advanced certification in Addictions known as a CADC II. I have an extensive background providing mental health counseling services for clients who integrate medication assisted treatments into their therapy. I am also skilled in working with clients who struggle with dual diagnosis, and the vast array of DSM-5 diagnosis as well. Please feel free to reach out!

Many individuals can experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic circumstances. Anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger post traumatic events. We can help you overcome these symptoms and guide you through the process of grief and healing.
