About Me

Thank you for considering BetterHelp and thank you for considering me as your counselor to help with your relationship.

I am a therapist with many years of experience and I am a Massachusetts Licensed Clinical Social Worker.. I use a strength based approach, encouraging couples to build on past positive attributes and past strengths and coping skills.

In today's world couples are stressed from isolating and trying to stay safe. Many of you have friends and family who have been ill and some of you have lost loved ones. Perhaps you experienced illness from Covid. One of my more rewarding positions was as a hospice social worker assisting people who were dying and helping their family members cope with loss. Currently I am working with parents who have children with life limiting disabilities. I have skills and experience in grief therapy with couples.
If your relationship is suffering from Covid fatigue or if you lost a loved one I can help.

I am supportive and aware of putting my clients first. I view life optimistically. You have potential for change by entering into counseling and taking some corrective actions. Changes regarding expectations and approach can make a difference. My role is to understand you, listen to you and to provide helpful suggestions. You will find that my style is to use empathy and warmth. My belief is that you have the ability to find solutions to your relationship difficulties. I am trained in psychodynamic insight oriented therapy. Establishing a positive, supportive relationships is key to my counseling method. My goal is for you to improve coping and to make changes now and for the future. A better life is a realistic goal. I look forward to working with you. Make a choice to improve your life, you are worth it.

I look forward to working with you!
