About Me

It can take courage to come to therapy. Whatever brings you in the door, I will meet you with warmth, empathy and humor, and take an active role in helping you reach your goals. My approach is holistic, focusing on the mind, body, energy, and spirit, as well as the effects of structural oppression - and I’m continually learning in each of these areas. Within my EMDR therapy sessions I often incorporate mindfulness and compassion-based therapies; parts work; and movement practices such as Yoga, Emotional Freedom Technique (tapping), and Somatic Experiencing. I find that these approaches can open a doorway to deep and compassionate inner listening, which often leads to new patterns of thinking, feeling, and being vibrantly human.

Education & Experience

I got my bachelor's degree from the University of Michigan and my MSW from Simmons College School of Social Work.

Prior to becoming a therapist, I was an Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher (E-RYT), Certified Wellness Coach, and Reiki Level II practitioner. I am also trained in Emotional Freedom Technique (Level 2), Integrated Energy Therapy (Intermediate), and am currently participating in an Advanced Family Constellations Learning Group through the Inner Arts Institute based in Watertown, MA.
