Our relationship is between you and me .
I assist and support individuals and couples to live from the deepest places, to make meaning in their lives, and to improve functioning within self, and between self and others. I offer possibility. I have been in the private practice of psychotherapy since 1977. Clients sometimes come to me when therapy with other therapists has not worked. I am willing to go as deeply as you are within the safety of clear ethical boundaries. I value difference and work to hold and accept and work with differences, whether they be personal, sexual, racial or cultural.

I create a safe, confidential and respectful environment and support you in your journey to overcome whatever you struggle with, or are challenged by in your life.

I embrace an eclectic, collaborative approach to therapy that focuses on the therapeutic relationship as the foundation for healing.
I believe that as humans, we each possess a tremendous and innate propensity towards healing. While this healing journey can be challenging and arduous, as many obstacles often arise, I believe it also can be well worth it. Perhaps you are struggling with depression or anxiety, a challenging life transition, relationship issues , or maybe you have been feeling disconnected from your true sense of self. My aim as a therapist is to create a safe environment that helps you heal from the past and find strength, authenticity, and agency in the present.

I can give you the skills, support, and strength to recognize the triggers to stress, anxiety, sadness, relationship and work issues, or other life challenge and provide you with tools and techniques to manage and overcome them.
Having a safe, nonjudgmental space, to be yourself, and to reflect, discuss, and learn about your reactions, decisions, and challenges can lead to improved well-being. My psychotherapy practice creates that space in a hopeful, compassionate atmosphere. Psychotherapy is a collaborative process. Between your counseling sessions, you are encouraged to reflect and put new skills and insights into practice. I can weave traditional psychotherapy with mindfulness practices to relieve symptoms, promote self-care, make intentional decisions, and grow. Please email me and I'll be able to answer more quickly.

The issues that bring clients into therapy with me include anxiety disorders, depression, eating disorders, addictive behaviors, sexuality and gender identity concerns, and relationship issues .
I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker with a general practice for adults. I believe that psychotherapy is an opportunity to increase insight about yourself and develop strategies for improving your life. My approach to therapy reflects my belief that change happens in the context of acceptance, but without clear strategies the problems that bring a person into therapy will persist. I believe that examining patterns in relationships and how we behave when we are anxious are important parts of the process of making life changes.

I have extensive experience working with individuals who struggle with anxiety, trauma, relationship issues , and loss.
Are you wishing to connect more with others? Do you feel detached from your partner? Are you experiencing a sense of overwhelm or anxiety? Are you noticing more conflict or stress in your family? If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, you may consider talking with a supportive professional. Over the years, my focus has developed into an insight-oriented, strength and relationship -based approach. I incorporate the most up-to-date neuroscience research, mind-body awareness, and self-regulation techniques that support families, individuals, and adolescents in achieving their goals.

I work with adolescents, adults, and couples experiencing anxiety, depression, self-esteem issues, trauma, relationship concerns, life transitions, or identity questions.
We all deserve a space to be heard as we navigate the challenges and complications of being human. Therapy allows us to gain insight into our behavioral patterns, motivations, hopes, and fears. I believe it is this deeper understanding of self that can empower growth and healing. My goal as a therapist is to provide a setting in which my clients feel safe and supported to explore their emotional experiences with curiosity and compassion.

I have qualified to administer the Gottman Relationship Checkup, and work with couples through the Gottman Method of therapy.
The ideal clients I am reaching out to are interested in participating in teletherapy, either individually or as couples. Due to a number of breaking developments, I have decided to convert my long-running practice to online therapy. I have professional counseling licenses in Vermont, MIssouri, and Illinois. I work from Missouri. Furthermore, I am seeking clients who prefer to work outside of the insurance system. I am rebooting my practice to offer high-qualify and affordable therapy. If you are interested, all you would need is Skype or Zoom (both are free downloads). I am offering 45 minute sessions for $40.

Whether you are interested in finding meaningful solutions to current problems or exploring the impact of deeply held injuries and conflicts, good therapy is only as effective as the healing relationship it is built upon: respect, acceptance, openness and curiosity.
Central to my work as a therapist is helping people make necessary, life affirming changes, both personally and in their relationships. Living comes with depressions, anxieties, unexpected betrayals, work crises, illnesses, self-defeating behaviors and personal shames. At some time or another, we've all felt how hard "getting by" can be, how alone and overwhelming. Of equal importance, however, is the healthy courage it takes to ask for help. Toward that end therapy offers people an opportunity to feel deeply known, a chance to move forward with greater self-awareness, confidence, and self-acceptance.

My clinical work has consisted of treating a variety of clients with different backgrounds and concerns. I am particularly interested and experienced in treating interpersonal relationship problems, self-esteem concerns, family of origin issues, anxiety, depression, grief and loss, codependency and LGBTQ issues. I enjoy facilitating individual and couples therapy with adults. As a compassionate, yet assertive clinician, I work with clients to meet self-identified goals. I view myself more as a guide and mentor than expert. My clients have described me as "down to earth" and "personable."

Many people that I see come for help with relationship difficulties. Couples that come to see me typically have concerns about escalating conflict, growing emotional distance, infidelity, sex, or differences in parenting style. I also see individuals who are experiencing distress associated with family or romantic relationships. Such distress may include heartbreak, intrusive anger, sexual performance anxiety, difficulties in “getting over” a past relationship , difficulties associated with early life attachment injuries or intrusive memories associated with family or romantic relationships.

Relationship Issues Therapists
While need for human connection appears to be innate, the ability to form healthy, loving relationships is learned. Some evidence suggests that the ability to form a stable relationship starts to form in infancy, in a child's earliest experiences with a caregiver who reliably meets the infant's needs for food, care, warmth, protection, stimulation, and social contact. Such relationships are not destiny, but they are theorized to establish deeply ingrained patterns of relating to others. The end of a relationship, however, is often a source of great psychological anguish.

If you're looking for a Burlington relationship therapist, these professionals provide relationship therapy and counseling in Burlington.
