“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn” -Benjamin Franklin
Welcome and thank you so much for your interest! Finding a therapist who is a good fit for you/your family is paramount to your success so let me take a moment to share a little about me. My name is Andrea and I am independently licensed in the states of New Hampshire and South Carolina to provide individual and family counseling. I graduated from the University of Massachusetts Boston in 2012 with a Masters Degree in Mental Health Counseling. I have more than 10 years of experience working in various therapeutic settings to support children and their families. Since becoming a mom myself, I have become increasingly more interested in supporting new moms & dads with difficulties related to postpartum depression, postpartum anxiety, loss of sense of self, and the challenges related to transitions within parenthood. I specialize in perinatal mental health (able to support you before, during, and after pregnancy). I also have extensive experience in working with child development on a behavioral spectrum and am happy to help you better support your kiddos and their needs. I am a mother to three young children (two of whom are twins), all under the age of five, who mean the absolute world to me. I also volunteer on the board of a local nonprofit organization aimed at supporting child and family welfare.
I work closely with children to help them learn coping skills, interrupt negative behaviors, and develop positive decision-making skills. I also work closely with parents on behavior modification strategies / techniques (including behavior charts / plans when requested) . In an effort to reach the population of new moms and dads, I bring practical and professional experience to each counseling session. There is so much change and many new, daily stressors that come along with being a new parent; I want to help you love your new role and more smoothly be able to navigate the challenging times!
To be able to serve a wider population of clients across the state, sessions are currently offered through tele-health. Sessions are HIPAA compliant and take place either via phone call or video session. This will be an extremely seamless process for you to get used to!
I promise to be there for you every step of your journey. My goal is to help you grow from your struggles, heal from your pain, and move forward to where you want to be in your life. Your mindset helps to determine your progress!
