From the time I was a child growing up in New England, I always had a strong desire to help people. I’ve been privileged to have the opportunity to work with children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families. I use a variety of therapeutic approaches— psychodynamic, Gestalt, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), and mindfulness-based practices – in an effort to discover the happy, peaceful life we all desire.
Prior to my work as a therapist, I earned a master’s degree in Psychology with a concentration in Animal Behavior and Conservation in New York City. I then made a shift in my career and came back to why psychology had captivated my interests initially. I returned back to studying the most interesting species on earth, human beings. It is then that I received a masters in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University to be licensed as a Marriage and Family Therapist. I am currently working on completing my hours towards licensure and am under the supervision of Grazel Garcia, LMFT #97561.
