My goal is to work in partnership with my clients to bring about positive changes and growth. I bring 15 years of clinical experience as a psychotherapist in community health and most recently as a private practitioner. I received both my Master's degree and Continued Advanced Graduate Study Degree in Counseling Psychology from Cambridge College. I am also certified as a cognitive behavioral therapist from Boston University School of Social work and Continuing Education.
My clinical experience includes working with individuals through their life span. A large emphasis has been working with a diverse community. I am a bilingual and bicultural therapist offering cultural competent treatment to clients. I embrace an eclectic approach to different treatment modalities to promote mental health wellness and growth. As a clinician, I am committed to diversity, evidenced-based practice, and encouraging empowerment among my clients.
I provide a strength based holistic approach to behavioral healthcare and health coaching that is affordable, accessible, and results-oriented. I specialize in anxiety disorder, depressive/mood disorders, addiction, anger, trauma, employee assistance program counseling, LGBTQ concerns, couples and cultural issues. While we cannot change difficult circumstances of past painful experiences, there are a variety of coping strategies that can help change perceived emotional and sensed value of those life events so that they do not continue to impact you negatively.
