HOW I WORK
In - Person
Self-Care Is How You Take Your POWER Back.
“Identifying what you need to feel your best and practicing it daily is the ultimate goal in living well. Self Care isn’t just treating yourself to something fun or luxurious. It is to show up for yourself in every way, even if it means saying no to something.”
COUNSELING / PSYCHOTHERAPY
In psychotherapy/counseling you explore your thoughts, feelings, strengthen relationships, identify patterns/triggers, and understand the root of your emotional pain, so you can make the changes in your life that will bring you peace and greater levels of satisfaction. Within therapy sessions you will work to heal and restore. You will learn how the body and mind are connected and that emotional stress can be hidden in body symptoms, and expressed physically. I am on the journey with you, as we navigate these situations and transitions to help improve your functioning, develop more emotional flexibility, self love and self learning, and live life with more meaning.
I am trained in evidence based counseling methods and theoretical frameworks including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Acceptance and Commitment therapy (ACT), EMDR, Brainspotting, Internal Family Systems (IFS), Mindfulness-based Eating Awareness training and more. I hold a Perinatal Mental Health Certification (PMH-C) through Postpartum Support International.
My office is located in White River Junction, Vermont. For clients who can not make it to my office in person, I also offer online counseling and psychotherapy for adult Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and Maine residents. In our first sessions, we will explore your needs around therapy and I can share how I think my training and approach might be helpful for your situation.

I offer a variety of coaching services for clients interested in self improvement, wellness, performance enhancement, and parenting. Coaching is a collaborative and transformative process focused on a particular outcome and for anyone looking to make positive changes in their life. Coaching is different from counseling/psychotherapy, as the focus is on reaching identified goals, such as enhanced performance, personal and professional satisfaction, rather than working on healing or emotional growth. We will establish meaningful priorities, set specific measurable goals, develop an individualized action plan, and help you move forward to success. Along the way, we will identify and work through the barriers that may arise and help you move forward. Supporting you in your goals with non judgement and compassion, I will help keep you accountable, as you take action and create change in your life.
Please note, that while I can offer psychotherapy/counseling for Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, and Massachusetts residents as a licensed clinician, I will refer out to another mental health professional for my coaching clients that need additional mental health support. Coaching is not psychotherapy and is not covered by insurance. Our initial consultation will be an opportunity to determine whether coaching or therapy is right for you.
