I am in private practice full time starting June 21, 2021. I am a Vermont State Board of Allied Mental Health Professionals rostered psychotherapist, National Board of Certified Counselors National Certified Counselor, and VT Office of Professional Regulation Apprentice Addiction Professional practicing under supervision toward designation as a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor and Licensed Alcohol and Drug Abuse Counselor.  I am a member of the American Counseling Association.
I am currently certified in telehealth through PESI and seeking certifications in Master Addiction Counselor, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Internal Family Systems Therapy.
My approach to therapy is person-centered, strengths based, solution focused, trauma informed, and culturally sensitive. I practice from a humanistic and existential theoretical orientation. From the Positive Psychology movement, I try to focus on what people do right for their health and wellness, rather than focusing on what is “wrong with them.” My goal is not to “fix” people instead I work with them to discover the best approach that “fits” them. I believe in a holistic approach to improving health and wellness, including integrated work on the mind, body, spirit, and shadow. I teach and adhere to an integrated health and wellness practice that addresses all the domains of a person’s existence: social, emotional, occupational, financial, relationships, intellectual, mental, emotional, physical, and environmental.

More about my practice philosophy:

From a holistic approach to wellness, I encourage and practice to improve my health & wellness through many domains. My previous and current interests and activities include Yin Yoga, Hatha Yoga, Martial Arts, Exercise, New Kadampa Tradition Buddhism, Guided Meditation, Organic Non-GMO Nutrition, Acupuncture, Sound Bath Meditation, Mindfulness, Cosmology, Reiki, and spirituality or religion. I am always seeking to learn about the way the world’s faiths inform people’s values and beliefs and provide them with hope, meaning, purpose, connection, community, and a sense of belonging. I believe religion and spirituality have a purpose for human beings, for some it is a way to learn a moral philosophy (virtue ethics).
