I was born and raised in Massachusetts where I received my undergrad degree at Simmons College in Boston. I joined the Marines in 2001 after 9/11 and after that enlistment served in the Army National Guard for a total of 15 years service with 2 combat tours to Iraq. I completed my Masters degree in counseling from St. Edwards University at Austin, Texas.
I believe that there are times in everyone’s life when extra support is needed and a safe place to be open and honest is nearly impossible to find. That’s why I believe the most vital elements in a therapeutic relationship are unconditional acceptance and compatibility between therapist and client. I know the clients I serve are the expert in their life so I create a safe space for personal exploration in an empathetic and non-judgmental environment. As a Dual Service Military Combat Veteran and spouse of a Combat Veteran I understand that every trauma reaction and path to healing is different.
Areas of clinical interest and specialties of mine are Veterans/1st Responders, LGBTQIA+, suicidal ideation, trauma, PTSD, life transitions, life coaching, fertility/womens health.
