Counseling & Expressive Art Therapy
Finding the right therapist can be tough. It's not just about insurance or timing. You want to feel safe. You want someone who really gets you. I welcome your questions and concerns, and I have a deep respect for every person who seeks counseling.
I have 20+ years of experience as a therapist, expressive art therapist, visual artist, art and yoga teacher. I'm a Massachusetts licensed mental health counselor and a nationally board certified art therapist .
People often come to me with issues such as depression, anxiety, addictions, trauma and disordered eating. I use a collaborative, creative and thoughtful approach to help adults work through problems, overcome fears, release stress and rediscover hope.
In addition to therapy, I offer clinical supervision for graduate students and new professionals who are striving to attain their license as a mental health counselor (LMHC), or certification as an art therapist (ATR or ATR-BC). I also provide more experienced therapists clinical consultation, supervision and support.

200 hour certified yoga teacher, practicing yoga since 1990. I've been delighted to offer private yoga instruction, classes and workshops since 2003.
I also offer corporate wellness programs that incorporate yoga, therapeutic, expressive art and meditative techniques. These are carefully crafted to suit the unique needs of your business or group with a focus on better overall health, greater clarity, heightened confidence and deeper sense of connection.
I was an artist and art teacher before I became a therapist. I received a Master of Fine Arts degree in sculpture from the University of Pennsylvania in 1993.
Making things is something I've always done. Currently, I paint, knit, make jewelry, and concoct healing, chemical free face and body treatments. I also have an antique house with endless DIY projects that keeps me busy.
Art has always been another language for me. When I was younger, it was one that felt far more dependable and trustworthy than words. During the Summer of 2004 while on vacation, I ran out of paper in my journal and started a series called Dear Diary. Since then, my words have been submerged under all of my paintings.
