I am licensed in Vermont with 16 years of professional work experience. One of the most informative working experiences I have had was working in a program that served Uniformed Personal who came from all parts of the country to participate in this program. We facilitated groups in meditation, mindfulness, Acceptance & Commitment Therapy to provide coping skills to overcome trauma and alcohol or substance abuse. I also hold certificates in yoga teacher training and focused specifically on meditation and breath-work, and, if that is acceptable and necessary in my work with you, this will be incorporated into our sessions. My personal practice of yoga, meditation and mindfulness assists me in my work as a counselor. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, depression, trauma, coping with grief and loss, increase motivation, self esteem, and confidence. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. Taking the first step to sign up for therapy can take courage and I am proud of you for getting started!
