Types of therapy offered & philosophy:
My goal as a therapist is to offer compassionate and non-judgemental attention to whatever arises and to offer tools that will help clients work with their issues and concerns. My work is based on a relational model of psychotherapy, client-centered and mindfulness-based.
Background I hold a Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology from Antioch New England Graduate School. Following graduate school I worked with domestic violence victims managing a shelter for women fleeing abuse. In 2001, I joined the staff of Adult Outpatient at Washington County Mental Health Services as the trauma treatment coordinator for the LINCS Program and also saw individual clients for psychotherapy. I have been in full-time private practice since 2008, first in Barre and currently in Montpelier.
