If you continue to struggle with life challenges, you will benefit from counseling in our Stoughton, MA office. I offer therapy, guidance, counseling and therapeutic support in an environment that is supportive and nonjudgmental.

Starting therapy can be overwhelming. I help build expectations in a judgement free environment.  Schedule an appointment and we can discuss it and work through it together to help you lead a better, fuller and happier life and lifestyle
