Clinical Social Work/Therapist, LCSW, MSW, Imago, EMDR
Good therapy can produce long lasting life changes. I approach therapy as a collaborative effort. I start with where the client finds themselves in the present. I listen with both curiosity and empathy to understand an individual's unique experience. In treatment I create an atmosphere of trust where together we can identify your strengths, find practical solutions to problems and unfold underlying difficulties that are obstacles to your experience of a rich and fulfilling life.
I have been in private practice for more than 30 years, offering holistic and client-centered treatment in a safe, supportive, confidential environment. Call to schedule an appointment: (802) 388-3362.
How often do we take time to reflect on who we truly are? I firmly believe that a positive sense of self begins with an inner belief that "I MATTER"! I also believe one's mental health is affected by the ability to be honest and hold oneself accountable. As people become more accepting and clearer about who they are and how they want to be in the world, they are more capable of finding contentment and joy in their lives. We do the very best we can in any given moment; being kind and gentle with yourself is key when looking within.
Anxiety, depression, trauma and relationship issues can be extremely painful and frustrating, as well as prevent us from feeling authentic, connected, and/or experiencing inner contentment. Therapy, as I see it, should be a safe space for people to express their feelings and emotions, improve their relationships with self and others, expand upon their unique strengths and learn new tools to deal with life’s stressors. *Please connect with me via the Psychology today message/email option*
If you are feeling stressed, anxious, or depressed, or you are struggling with grief and loss, or the effects of trauma, I can offer you a safe place to share your feelings and experiences, and to be heard with compassion and understanding. Together we can help you find a greater sense of happiness and well-being.
I will provide a safe and comfortable space for you to explore issues that have caused you difficulties or hindered your goals. Sometimes we are stuck in a situation that requires someone to listen and prompt you to find solutions and sometimes issues are about finding yourself and ways to cope with the world. You are the expert about your needs.
Welcome! I believe that it is possible for you to find emotional balance, wherever you are in your journey. Your needs and emotional well being will be the guiding force in our work together, whether you are negotiating challenging situational stressors, or wanting to understanding persistent sadness that seems to have no source. Maybe you are feeling stuck, grieving, dealing with addiction, or feeling disconnected. Together we can work toward putting you in the driver's seat of your own life.
I work with folks who experience complex trauma, grief, couples, neurodivergent folks, LGBTQIA+, and people who feel things really intensely. It can feel isolating to navigate trauma and other emotional experiences without someone to witness and be on the journey with you. Browsing psychology today profile pages, especially during a pandemic, can feel exhausting and limiting. I am a firm believer that having a positive relationship with a therapist is one of the most important parts of therapeutic work.
It's often difficult to reach out for help when you most need it, and it can be hard to speak with someone you've never met about personal issues. On the other hand, it can be easier to do with a person who is a trained, neutral professional. I can be objective and understanding in a way that well-meaning friends and family often cannot. My work with couples, individual adults including seniors, or the younger population, begins in a friendly, professional manner whereby we move towards knowing each other better. A rapport between us is essential in accomplishing our work.
Many of my clients are the ones who are being called to a more vivid version of their lives. They may have gotten off track with life purpose, or they may have long sensed something beyond familiar paths, but they’ve not had the support they needed to answer the invitation to a different way of doing or being. What I offer is mirroring, skillful inquiry, and spirited co-creation in creating this new life. I have been a practicing psychologist for 38 years, and I have also worked many years as a wilderness guide, facilitating explorations of life purpose, inner truth, and self-transformation.
Ali is passionate about living a life of vibrant health and happiness, and helping others to do the same. Her training and experience is as a clinical mental health therapist and as an instructor of wilderness therapy, mindfulness, meditation, energy work, Pathwork, & more. Ali specializes in working with individuals who wish to be as sensitive and wild as we naturally are. She helps her clients heal from stress and trauma and to realign with our natural state of health, balance, and harmony.
Therapy can help break old patterns and habits which can stand in the way of forming new opportunities or relationships. I have been practicing as a counselor in Vermont for fourteen years, working with children, adolescents, and families. I am also trained as a crisis clinician. I have worked closely with families and teens experiencing depression, suicidal ideation, trauma, anxiety, family conflict and school challenges.
I offer a welcoming, compassionate, and non-judgmental space to share your story. Sometimes, problems we face — whether they come with a diagnosis or not — may be overwhelming, debilitating, paralyzing, unhealthy, or destructive to ourselves or our relationships. I work collaboratively to help people deconstruct and free themselves from the grip of problems that may be overwhelming and oppressive and move toward preferred ways of living and thriving.
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.
Are you unhappy in your closest relationship? Are you stuck in a pattern of disconnection? Has one of you had an affair? These are the signs of distress in a relationship: poor communication, distance and/or withdrawing, critcizing/blaming, lack of intimacy or sexual contact, inability to resolve conflict. If you are experiencing any of these - its important to get help asap. I help people create intimate, secure, lasting relationships . Other specialties also include working with those who suffer from the after effects of abuse and trauma, and those who are experiencing depression, anxiety or stressful changes in their lives.
Psychoanalytic work is an intensive therapy that focuses on increasing self-understanding and a sense of personal freedom. It is very helpful for anxiety, depression, obsessions and compulsions, relationship issues and trauma.
Welcome. You may have arrived here seeking an increased sense of calm, safety, and connection, a stronger sense of who you are with confidence to express your authentic self, or motivation to pursue life goals and passions. You may be grappling with difficult life transitions, trauma experiences, persistent anxiety, or relationship challenges that have given rise to feelings of exhaustion, sadness, fear, overwhelm, isolation or even confusion. These burdens can make it hard to find joy and meaning. With compassion and acceptance, I am here to support you in releasing these burdens and moving towards the life you aspire to live.
Feeling stuck in a life that is unfulfilling, repeating patterns or habits that don't serve your well-being and relationships right now, overwhelmed by life’s responsibilities and the tides of our rapidly changing world, or having trouble letting go of painful parts of the past? We all occasionally need help to clearly see ourselves and find new ways to live better lives.
For over 20 years I have been fortunate to counsel individuals, couples and families as they strive to improve the quality of their lives. Clients and colleagues describe my style as caring, insightful, humorous, open and direct. The people I help often come to counseling feeling "stuck," weighed down by heavy moods or anxiety, and isolated. They yearn to experience greater joy and ease in their daily life, to recover from past hurts, to feel a deeper sense of meaning in their lives, and to have less conflict with loved ones. Some are looking to be free of addictive behaviors.
Hi. My name is K. and my passion to help others is the cumulative result of over thirty years of professional and educational experience in the fields of Human Services, Transpersonal Psychology and Integrated Holistic Practices. I have been a participant and (co)-facilitator at many gatherings secular and non-secular and hold dear the multitude of experiences I have had working with folks who are dealing with issues related to mental health/substance abuse, homelessness, chronic medical conditions, complex trauma, spiritually transformative experiences, social inequality, and mind-body-spirit integration.
