Do you often feel weighed down by anxiety or shame? Do you question your ability as a parent, partner, employee, or a friend? Well I get it, because I’ve been there too. I have experienced the transformative power of therapy and I hope to help guide you on your path to healing.
As a therapist, and a human, I have a core belief that everything comes back to self-worth. With a healthy level of self worth, you will no longer question whether you are good enough; you will know you are enough. It is my goal to create not only a safe environment for you to tell your stories, but to provide you with a brave space to empower you to speak your mind and make the changes you want to see in your life.
Choosing to go to therapy can be difficult. The idea of sharing the most intimate details of your life with a stranger can be uncomfortable. So, here are some details about me; I was born and raised on Long Island, which you will learn very quickly as my accent does not seem to want to fade despite my 4 years in Virginia. I come from a very blended family, which of course has its challenges. I find spending time with my people, my pup, and my plants help keep me grounded. I have extensive history working with adolescents and adults who have significant emotional issues – specializing in anxiety disorders, depression and self esteem. I am currently working toward certification in Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders and have a passion for tackling issues related to maternal mental health, relationships, women’s issues and self esteem.
Therapy is hard. We will dig into the nitty gritty details of your life and work together to challenge your negative thinking, to push yourself, to cry, and yes to laugh – a lot. It is my absolute honor to share your most vulnerable places with you and I do not take that privilege lightly. Life’s hard, let’s work together to help you see the beauty.
