I could begin by telling you about my professional experience (you can find that below), but I’m guessing what you really want to know is, “Can I relate to this therapist?” and “Can she help me?”


So first let me reassure you. I’ve been where you are. I’m a mother, just like you. I have two children and intimately know the feeling of complete adoration one moment and utter exasperation the next. I’m also a stepmom, so I understand the unique dynamics of blended families, too.


My Story

I had years of experience working with children before having my first child. As a school counselor, I was known for being exceptionally patient with my students. When I became a parent I assumed this would naturally translate to being an exceptionally patient mother.

But when my newborn daughter grew into a demanding toddler, I felt my buttons being pushed. I was surprised by the feelings it evoked in me, and ashamed that I wasn't able to manage them better. The birth of my second daughter brought new challenges--- anxiety and periods of feeling down and disconnected. Yes, there were joyful, tender moments, but I often felt irritable, guilty, and discouraged.

I realized that in order to become the mother I wanted to be, I would need to get intentional in how I approached not only parenting, but my own well-being. My experience led to a passion for helping other moms begin their journeys toward greater awareness, fulfillment, and self-compassion.

My Qualif


I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker in the state of Massachusetts (license #117151). I began working in special education over 20 years ago, and transitioned to counseling parents, kids, and teens in 2007 as I pursued my master's degree in clinical social work at Boston University. After finishing my master's, I worked in a therapeutic private school where I provided individual counseling, family therapy, and outreach services. I moved into private practice following the birth of my first child, where I now work exclusively with adults.

Personally and professionally, I have an interest in using both mindfulness and movement to quiet the mind and gain more ease and awareness. I have advanced training in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, a mindfulness-based modality, and have also completed training in yoga therapy. I am currently working towards a certificate in treating the adult children of emotionally immature parents, based on the work of Dr. Lindsay Gibson.


Working Together

Please note the following while deciding if therapy with me might fit your needs:

  • All sessions are held online.

  • I do not accept insurance.

  • My fee is $130 for a 50-minute session ($160 for the initial Intake Consultation).

  • You must physically be in the state of Massachusetts during every session per licensing laws.
