After over 19 years of working in the mental health field, my favorite part of this work is helping people identify who they are based on their strengths and resilience, not their struggles or weaknesses. Every person has value, and I am grateful for the opportunity to assist people in discovering theirs.
I am a licensed Clinical Psychologist in the state of VT and a Licensed Psychological Examiner in the state of ME. I have practiced independently for many years and have served children and adults of all ages. My approach to therapy is empathic, strength-based and supportive. With many years of experience practicing therapy with client, my approach to life coaching is a therapeutic, supportive and encouraging one. As your coach I will partner with you to develop a better understanding of your daily challenges, identify your strengths, clarify your goals, and create practical solutions and strategies to meet your individual needs.
In holding grief in attention and awareness, you can tenderly explore and witness it as you learn how to respond and care for it. As a social-language therapist with training in mindfulness and applied compassion, I offer grief support as I draw from my lived experience with loss and grief, mindfulness, compassion, and neuroscience. I support & guide individuals as they seek to cultivate a relationship with grief. Sessions help individuals create a compassionate space to communicate with and navigate grief. I am also a Reiki Master and offer Reiki sessions upon request.
If you have been having relationship troubles, career concerns, financial issues, struggling to make decisions, feeling down, confused about life in general, having a hard time trusting people, feeling anxious, have struggled with past trauma, or maybe experiencing difficulties avoiding drugs, or alcohol. Maybe you aren't sure about how your life is going but just know you need change, I would like to be your partner in working toward helping you solve whatever challenges you are facing. Let's find a solution together.
Do you suspect that you or a loved one is on the autism spectrum? I can help you in exploring this question and considering its personal, vocational, and family implications. I specialize in working with older adults who are diagnosed or seek diagnosis. I also work with teens and children/families. I can help communication between autistics and "neuro-typicals." I am active in an adult autistic peer support network and can help you connect with other autistics for support if you wish to do so.
Welcome to my profile! I am a seasoned psychologist who has worked with individuals, couples and children for many years. I work very relationally with my clients and together we will set up goals to meet your specific needs. My practice is small and we will talk on the phone to be sure that I am the best fit for what you need before we set up an appointment. I look forward to hearing from you; I know the first step to calling a therapist can be a bit scary, but it is also the first step to feeling better in your life.
**Please note: I am Telehealth ONLY.** Starting this journey of self exploration can be both exciting and scary. I want to be the one to help you become comfortable with the idea of changing your life. There are a few crucial pieces that help make therapy effective: client-therapist relationship, increasing self-awareness both in mind and body, and finding coping skills that work specifically for each person. I treat each and every client uniquely, as every person has a story that needs to be told and held sacredly. If you are looking to explore your inner self and wanting more peace in your life, I'm here to help!
