As a licensed clinical mental health counselor I am trained and have experience working with children, adults, couples and families struggling with many of life's challenges. I use an existential humanistic framework with evidence based, trauma informed, neurodiversity affirming, and culturally sensitive treatments. This allows for meaningful exploration of ourselves and our relationships, while addressing immediate concerns of how we function in our daily lives, resulting in a more authentic way of being with ourselves and with one another.

Not accepting new clients. I have been a therapist in Maine for 25 years, initially at the Master's level; I completed my PhD in Clinical Psychology in 2012. I work with people from all walks of life - people of diverse ethnicities, orientations, and beliefs. I have worked at in- and out-patient programs, and in private practice; with people who are having difficulty adjusting to changing life circumstances, and with people with severe, persistent, mental illness. This has confirmed my belief that, while our differences should be celebrated, human beings can always find connection, and those connections can be the basis for healing.

When we experience trauma we are often flooded with overwhelming emotions, body sensations, and memories. I work with clients to cultivate awareness around identifying the patterns our bodies and minds engage in based on our past experiences. Once we can identify the patterns we can encourage change. Through a trauma-informed lens and with the assistance of my equine co-therapist, we can guide you to reconnect with your body and begin to understand how trauma impacts your nervous system. Together we can begin to understand how trauma shows up for you and work to reprocess trauma and sit with challenging emotions

I wholly believe we all have capacity for growth, regardless of where we begin. Life is fluid and people are not diagnostic labels, contrary to what social media would tell you. People are much more complex than a handful of symptoms on a Tik Tok video. Because of this, I utilize an integrative model in my work, incorporating different therapeutic styles depending on the client and the circumstances. My basic approach is psychodynamic in nature - helping you to understand what has happened in your life so you can better see the patterns that are no longer serving you, and identifying actions with you to change them.

I enjoy working with people who find themselves at a fork in the road; at that place in life where they are ready to act or think differently or find themselves struggling to function when life becomes different. I have a passion for supporting cancer survivors and their families throughout the many stages of treatment including diagnosis, treatment, recovery, survivorship and grief. I also have spent a great deal of my career working with neurodivergent folks navigating the unique challenges of functioning in a neurotypical world. If any of this resonates with you, we may be a good fit.

Female Therapists

Does it matter what gender my therapist is?

In general, this is not an important factor, as there is no relationship between a therapist’s gender and their efficacy. Some clients, however, prefer to see therapists of a particular gender, whether due to their own past experiences with men and women, or ingrained beliefs about how people of different genders think and behave. Exploring the roots of such preferences and considering what one wants to address in therapy can help someone determine whether their therapist’s gender truly matters to them.

Should I see a female therapist?

Many people—not just women—prefer to see a female therapist, either because they believe that a woman will be able to relate to their specific challenges (for example, sexism in the workplace) or because they imagine feeling more comfortable disclosing sensitive information to a woman. Such beliefs may not turn out to be accurate, however, and adhering too rigidly to a gender preference can at times hinder a client from finding the best therapeutic match.

Do therapists get specific training to help with women’s concerns?

Therapists are trained to provide care to clients of any gender. However, some therapists—both men and women—may pursue additional training in feminist therapy, gender-specific issues, or women’s mental health. Female clients may wish to ask prospective therapists whether they have received specific training in the client’s primary area(s) of concern, or whether they have worked extensively with women on issues similar to their own.

How can I inquire about a therapist’s experience in treating women?

It’s OK—even encouraged!—to ask a therapist directly whether and how often they have treated women in the past, or whether they have treated women dealing with the client’s most prominent concern(s). Competent therapists will be happy to share their educational background, preferred treatment modalities, and prior client experience to help an individual find the therapist best suited to their needs.
