I provide individual, couples, and family therapy. I can help with anxiety, depression, mood disorders, adjustment, stress, relationships, trauma/PTSD, family conflict, parenting/co-parenting, self-esteem, anger/aggression, oppositional and defiant behavior, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), grief and loss, divorce, life transitions and many other presenting concerns.
For adolescents and adults, I offer a supportive and nonjudgmental space to express and work through the emotional issues or challenging experiences that are holding you back, in a way that will promote positive growth, healing, and change. If you are feeling stuck, I can help you find a way to move forward at a pace that is comfortable to you. I recognize the beauty, wholeness, and capacity for growth in every individual, and will work collaboratively with you to reach your goals.
For children ages 4 and up, I specialize in play therapy as an approach to helping youth explore emotions and experiences. Play is a child’s natural language that is comforting and familiar for them. Using games, dolls, puppets, art, stories, and toys, I will help your child to understand and manage feelings, get control over their body, communicate effectively, problem solve, and make better choices. As a mother, I understand the challenges parents experience, and I will also consult with you to help you identify the best ways to support your child.
Lenny and Squiggy are always happy to help out in a play therapy session.
Payment and Insurance:
Fees are $129/session ($155 for couples/families and initial assessment). I accept Anthem BCBS Connecticut, BCBS Massachusetts, Tufts (Commercial only), Health New England, Allways, Optum, and UnitedHealthcare insurances. If you have a different insurance with a PPO plan, I can also provide services as an Out of Network provider. In this case, you pay out of pocket and I would provide you with a Superbill (receipt) that you can submit to your insurance company for reimbursement according to your plan. For self-pay clients, I accept cash or credit cards.
