About me

I am licensed in New York and Vermont with 6 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, depression, grief and loss, major life changes, coping with acute and chronic illness, family conflict, and relationship issues. I believe that individuals possess the innate capacity to make self-determined changes that lead to personal growth, psychological healing, positive relationships, and emotional well-being. My role as your therapist is to provide you with a safe, non-judgmental environment, and collaborate with you to build upon your personal strengths. My overall approach is person-centered and humanistic, yet I also draw upon many theoretical psychosocial frameworks and utilize various therapeutic modalities to meet my clients' unique therapeutic counseling needs.

If you are ready to take your next step toward personal development and improved mental health, I am here to empower and support you in that process.

I look forward to working with you!
