Less Anxiety, More You
Ready to feel better? (That's a trick question. It's always nice to feel better!) Ready to do something differently, or talk to someone about feeling better? I'm here for you. (That's not a trick!) I invite you to roam around this site to learn a bit about what we can do together. I offer virtual OCD therapy and virtual anxiety therapy for Massachusetts and California.

You. You're awesome, I just know it already. But maybe you want to feel better. Things might feel really severe right now. Panic. Repetitive thoughts and behaviors. Intrusive fears. Maybe your emotions feel like they're spiraling out of control. Or maybe things are just a little off. Some procrastination here, avoiding contact with a friend there. You are all seen and welcome here. Reaching out is a lot easier than it can feel! There are links and buttons all around this site. Feel free to choose your favorite one. :-)
Mental Health Counselor,
I'm a licensed mental health counselor who specializes in OCD, anxiety, body dysmorphic disorder, and depression. I have experience helping people across the lifespan, but am currently only working with adults. When I'm not in sessions I like to spend time hiking, reading, and finding the comedy in life.

What's with all the oranges and olive trees?
Both sets of my grandparents ranched oranges and olives in Central California. Their hard work, as well as their tenderness toward loved ones, has always inspired me! I miss them now that they've passed, but they are "with me," and several graphics on these web pages are a nod to them. The zest of citrus and peace of an olive branch inform my life and work.
