The decision to begin therapy can be tough and often follows attempts to manage difficult life struggles independently. I view therapy as a collaborative process in which clients are encouraged to explore thoughts, feelings, and behaviors in a supportive, nonjudgmental and compassionate environment where meaningful change and growth can be achieved.
I am a licensed Marital and Family therapist with over 40 years of experience in a myriad of settings. I was initially trained as a Behavior Therapist and through my work became interested in the impact of the family system on individual patterns. I received my MFT at UCONN and continued on to receive a Ph.D. in Family Studies. After graduation, I taught in the Family Studies Dept for 15 years and seeing clients in our clinic.
I have been in Private Practice for the last 6 years and I use all of my training and previous experiences. I use evidence-based treatment modalities and provide a warm, person-centered, strength-based approach to aid clients in finding their unique path to happier, more fulfilling lives.
