Nice to meet you! 👋

Millenial and Gen-Z people have experienced much adversity in their lives already. From financial insecurity, the Covid-19 pandemic, to a shift in what the “American Dream” looks like, we’ve been through a lot. I know the struggles of being a bisexual, a woman, and a person with chronic illness, all while still handling daily stressors.

Let's talk ☕

I can relate to the feeling of having too much on your plate and grappling with productivity and burn out in the modern, post-covid age. This is what propelled me to start my own practice and become a resource for those also looking to take control of their lives through positive change.

My approach

If you, or your teen, are seeking support in a warm person-centered way, then you’ve come to the right counselor. I take an eclectic and individualized approach to help my clients meet their goals. I have found this is the best way to connect with and empower my clients to live authentically.

An eclectic and individualized approach means I use only the relevant pieces of different theoretical approaches to provide the best support for your individual needs.

My credentials

Insurance

Insurances I accept currently:

  • Tufts (Commercial plans)
  • United Behavioral Health / United Healthcare / Optum
  • Mass General Brigham Health Plan (formerly AllWays Health Partners)
  • Harvard Pilgrim

I also accept Self-pay or Out-of-Network coverage.

Even if I don’t accept your insurance, you can still get your insurance to pay for your sessions using Out-of-Network coverage. 

I can also accept payment via Health Spending Account (HSA).

Pricing

Price is based on the amount of time in session:

While therapy can be a financial commitment, it is an investment in your future. My goal is to help you achieve your goals and stick with them for long term success!
