Clinical Social Work/Therapist, MSW, LCSW
Portland, Maine 04103

I am successful working with people who struggle with relationships, anxiety, depression or life's transitions including loss. I use a holistic approach that emphasizes meaning, mindfulness and action. Healing is promoted when we explore our emotions and thoughts while focusing on behavior change that is consistent with our personal values. My job is to help you notice and identify your feelings,thoughts and experiences and how they fit with your sense of yourself. I also help to develop concrete strategies that alleviate the symptoms of anxiety, loss and depression. Finally, I have experience working with adolescents and young adults. My practice is client centered and driven by each person's individual strengths and needs. I used a variety of techniques which include noticing thoughts and feelings as well as looking assumptions and behaviors. I am particularly interested in mindfulness how we make meaning of life's challenges.
