In a world rife with distraction and competition, most of us are out-of-step with our own needs and drives. We wish people could read our minds and just know what we need. We feel lost knowing how to connect with what we want.
Mindfulness, yoga, intuitive eating, as well as acceptance and commitment therapy each inform my practice working with clients. With nearly fifteen years of experience in the field, I also regularly employ
foundational skills such as cognitive behavioral therapy and dialectical behavior therapy in our work together.
I received my masters degree in Counseling Psychology through completion of the Lesley University’s 60 credit clinical mental health program and certified by the Board of Allied Mental Health and Human Services Professions as a practicing Licensed Mental Health Counselor, number 6760 .
After years of working with women in my practice and becoming a mom (twice over) I started the blog and podcast Momma Bites! (available on most podcast platforms or at www.mommabites.com) where I regularly interview experts in various fields of self-care including intuitive eating, mindfulness, yoga, complementary & alternative healing, sleep, sexual health, and many other areas. Armed with their advice and my own personal and clinical experience, I wrote Self-care for New Moms: Thriving in Your Postpartum Year published by Skyhorse Publishing.
What I'm reading...
Days at the Morisaki Bookshop
I'm not always reading clinical books. Actually, a big part of my self-care is reading things that have little to do with
therapy. This slim book was a holiday gift and is a translation from Japanese into English. The story of a broken-hearted twentysomething living in the top floor of her uncle's overcrowded
bookshop has a evocative sense of place and is a quick read.
