My journey as a psychotherapist began over 25 years ago when I obtained my Master’s in Social Work from Boston College. I’ve worked in a variety of settings including health care, emergency room, psychiatric institutions and private practice. I’ve worked with all ages with a multitude of complex issues. In addition to my clinical work, I had the opportunity to co-develop a program for HIV/AIDS patients where I was the Mental Health Director.

My private practice was established in 2000 and has now expanded into a group practice called Center for Life Solutions. We provide individual therapy for children, teens and adults as well as couples and family therapy. In addition, I have been leading an ongoing women’s personal growth group. I integrate mind-body wellness and neuroscience along with practical tools and a “solution focus”. I believe in working collaboratively as a “team” in an atmosphere of warmth, compassion and humor.

My areas of specialty include: Anxiety, Depression, Child/Teen issues, Parenting matters, Food/Weight, Body Image and Eating Disorders, Career issues, Infertility, Divorce, Spouses’ dealing with Sex Addiction and Recovery, Trauma, Loss and Grieving.
