Welcome to my site! I am grateful to do the work that I do and hope I can be of service to you. Ever since I can remember, I have always and increasingly been interested in human behavior, human development and in those people who demonstrated resiliency in their lives. I am a graduate of Boston Latin Academy high school. I also graduated with an undergraduate degree in Criminal Justice from Southern Vermont College and then earned a graduate degree (M.Ed.) in Rehabilitation Counseling with a certificate in advanced graduate studies (CAGS) in Mental Health Counseling at UMASS Boston. I have been a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Massachusetts since 2004, a Certified Rehabilitation Counselor since 2003 and a Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor in Massachusetts since 2008.
From 1992-2000 I served in the U.S. military, first in the U.S. Naval Reserves and then in the MA Army National Guard. I have also worked with Veterans and have a passion for working with this population.
I am a professionally trained Coach since 2012. Coaching is an exciting profession that has the power to instill hope and create change in others rather quickly. I have a passion for becoming the best Coach I can possibly be. I have immersed myself in various methods and teachers of Coaching including Tony Robbins who I believe is the gold standard for what an effective Coach should be. I am a member of Recovery Coaches International and The International Association of Coaching. I have received coaching services myself.
Regardless of which service we decide is best suited for you, I am committed to giving you an ethical, personalized and effective service.
For those of you seeking psychotherapy, I do my best work when we meet consistently i.e. weekly and when we do our sessions in person. For those of you seeking Resiliency Coaching, we will work together either in person or by using the telephone. in both services, I return emails and phone calls promptly.
