Counseling Services

Your life hasn't turned out the way you planned.  Anxiety or depression are making you feel stuck...like you don't recognize yourself anymore.  Maybe you are considering a divorce, you've gotten sick, you've lost your job, or you've had a loved one die.  Situations like these and others can leave us angry, heartbroken, and confused.  Trying to work through your concerns alone can be so hard.  Having a safe place, and the support of an experienced and compassionate therapist during those ups and downs can be beneficial. 

Individual 50 minute counseling sessions are offered to support you.  You are welcome to call me for a free 15 minute consultation to determine if we are a good fit.  You can reach me at holdinghopeservices@gmail.com or by phone at (978) 219-7356 to set up a phone appointment.  You may pay for your session with cash, check, or credit card.  I am currently accepting Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield, Harvard Pilgrim, United Healthcare and Optum as well.  I will happily provide you with whatever information you need to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement.

My Experience

I have had the great pleasure of working with clients in diverse settings over the course of my career.  My therapeutic approach is individually tailored towards the strengths of my clients.  I began by working with adolescent girls in a shelter setting.  I then transitioned to a hospital offering support in acute situations.  I later worked in community based therapy, which led to opening my private practice providing counseling in Portsmouth, NH.        

Together we will work to collaborate and build a trusting relationship where you can feel accepted and supported.  We will address the specific challenges you are facing.  Clients typically seek me out for grief counseling, anxiety, depression, chronic illness, and/or while facing significant life adjustments.
