I work with adults 25 and over with a specialty in midlife and geriatrics. I acccept Blue Cross Blue Shield, Optum, Tufts, and Medicare.

I am a licensed Clinical Psychologist with extensive experience working with older adults and their family caregivers. I am trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and other evidence-based therapies, and I have specialties in Gerontology and Health Psychology. My background includes over 30 years in health care. My primary focus for over ten years has been studying and treating the emotional and psychological effects on women, of aging, medical illnesses, and caring for others.


My Bachelor’s Degree and Certificate in Gerontology studies are from Assumption College, and my Master’s Degree and Doctoral Degree are both in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University New England. My post-doctoral training was at UMass Memorial Medical Center, and included working with seriously ill medical inpatients and cardiac rehab patients, along with healthy adults in the outpatient psychiatry clinic.

In our busy world, we often are so busy working and caring for families and friends that we can forget that we need care, too. We can find ourselves overwhelmed, anxious, in pain and wondering what happened to our life. My goal is to help you find your way back to a life that feels real, that feels like it’s your own, that feels meaningful, and that brings your enthusiasm and joy back.


Together, we will examine what brought you to this point, explore options and alternatives that can improve your mood and engagement in your life, and create a plan that can pull it all together to create the life you can love. And my role will be to support and guide you every step of the way. One lesson that I have learned is that it is an honor to work with people who have the heart to take this journey. Welcome!
