Grief is an emotion often reserved for the passing of someone meaningful to us, but it’s also a normal emotion in life transitions, like job loss, a ruptured relationship, a move, an accident, the death of a pet, illness, trauma or an empty nest. These experiences may leave you grieving the loss of an idea, an expectation of what your life looked like or where it was going. Loss has a way of isolating a person from others. You may feel pressure to be doing better than you are, or to be further along an arbitrary timeline. Well-intentioned comments that don’t meet you where you are can leave you feeling even more alone.

VT MEDICAID ACCEPTED. NEW CLIENTS WELCOME! Do you react intensely to others' behavior? Do people say you are oversensitive? Do you sometimes need to withdraw from people to feel safe? A history of emotional wounding could be playing a big part in your distress. But it is often difficult to make the connection. Emotional mistreatment is not like physical or overt sexual abuse, which are episodic and which often leave specific memories. It is more of a pattern of behavior directed towards you that leaves you feeling hurt, alone and uncertain of your place in the world.

Jay, VT 05859  (Online Only)
In my counseling role, I see myself as a fellow traveler on your path to wellness – someone to help you see, and use your strengths – and to cultivate peace in your life. I practice according to a cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) model, which means I think we can develop emotional tools, skills, and strategies that can have a big impact on our lives, our relationships, and the way we feel. At the heart of all my work is a firm belief in mindful self compassion - not excuse making; rather a balanced view of self, and our connection to a common humanity.

Parents of children with behavioral or learning challenges often encounter higher levels of stress and can struggle to understand why what works for others isn't working for them. By combining educational, behavioral, and psychological flexibility expertise, I work with parents to help them uncover the ways that shifting their own behavior can create opportunities for their child/children to make different choices.

I believe each of us is a unique work of art in progress. Therapy is a process of discovering how your deepest self wants to be expressed in the world and then finding the inner resources to live that out. During darker periods of life, we might question the meaning of things, feel flawed or broken, and long for what’s out of reach. These times can signify a loss of connection to our innermost selves and be a call to a new way of living. Our work together will explore pains and patterns that continue to show themselves, family and social systems that shape self-concept, and inner workings of personality that make you who you are.

Being a Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT) means that I incorporate many facets of your life into therapy. Often people think that MFTs only work with couples and families, while we do often work a lot with these clients, we also work with individuals and bring our systemic approach to therapy with them as well. Personally, it just makes sense to me to take into account all of the different systems you are connected to as I work to help you be where you want to be. I will work collaboratively with you and bring more than a decade of experience as a therapist into our sessions.

I am a licensed clinical social worker with nearly two decades of experience with clients of all ages. I specialize in working with anxiety, depression, and managing the stress of everyday life. I also offer an outdoor/adventure based program for teens using hands-on projects as a conduit for building confidence, emotional intelligence, and self-awareness. Unfortunately. this is only available to private-pay clients. I don't deploy a single therapeutic technique. Rather, I blend the best parts of many different approaches. My clients typically find me warm and validating while gently pushing them to grow in the specific areas.

I believe that times of transition or crisis, though frequently painful and disorienting, offer us powerful opportunities for adaptation and healing. I believe we have a fundamental need for connection, for being truly heard and for feeling effective and valued. Whether you are 35 or 85 or somewhere in between, I offer you a place to safely explore your needs and challenges. My clients describe my style as honest, engaged, compassionate and respectful. From my work in urban and rural settings, within a variety of socio-economic communities, I have developed a profound belief in everyone's capacity for positive change.

Being open to adopting the right mindset to how we navigate life situations that test our resolve and patience can help provide us with stability and grounding in light of these challenges.

I use a holistic approach to therapy. I primarily utilize a method called Internal Family Systems therapy to help each client gain access to understanding how they have come to take on certain beliefs and behaviors in their lifetime that have led to unhappiness, dissatisfaction and emotional burden. I believe that by assisting clients to connect with themselves and release these burdens, they can then be empowered to live a life that is authentically led with confidence, clarity, creativity, courage, compassion, curiosity and calm.

I believe that therapy is most effective when it is empathic, collaborative, non-judgemental and non-pathologizing. I am deeply interested in the uniqueness of each human being who comes to me. By talking together in ways which nurture curiosity, compassion and insight we will look at what troubles you, what brings you hope, and which patterns of thinking/feeling/being you are engaging in that are not serving you well now.
