Introduction:
If you feel stuck or overwhelmed
If feelings of anxiety take you over
If you’re worried and wonder if you need help
If you’re struggling with your marriage or primary relationship
If your children are making you crazy
If being sad or having no feeling at all just won’t work anymore
      Call me.  I can help.
 I consider it an honor to work with people in therapy.  While I talk with you, I enjoy discovering your unique style, your strengths, and even those things about you that you may not like.  These traits, viewed in new ways, can all help you resolve problems, increase healthy feelings and improve communication.  Sometimes this process is very fun and uplifting; other times it is difficult, sad, or frustrating.  Whatever your experience, I will remain present and supportive. What you’re going through matters to me.  You need not feel embarrassed about who or how you are when you speak with me. I will take you and your therapy seriously.

      I began my career in Marriage and Family Therapy after I had my three children. After my youngest son was diagnosed with a chronic illness, I decided that I wanted to train to work alongside people as they work through life’s difficulties.  I have a Masters Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Central Connecticut State University.   I am also an American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy Approved Supervisor. (aamft.org)

      Experience, caring and competence are qualities I bring to your therapy. I do not see you as “broken” or “wrong,” but as a person, like me.  We all must jump hurdles throughout life and sometimes we run into walls.   In working with you, I will not just sit and nod my head.  I will listen to you and help you put the pieces together.  I have studied hard to offer you the information and skills in therapy that you deserve. Your therapy will be personally tailored to your needs, genuinely hopeful and authentic.

      I am always learning, as life has much to teach.
