About me

I am a mental health counselor licensed in Vermont. I am also an alcohol and drug counselor and am happy to treat co-occurring disorders (mental health and substance abuse). I specialize in working with adults with depression, anxiety, grief, complicated grief as well as with issues with communication, confidence and identify issues.
My approach is to listen and then to reflect back what I hear to be sure I have captured my patient's struggle. From there, we work together to develop skills to help the patient to be able to more successfully navigate their life.

It has been very helpful to be able to speak honestly and with confidentiality about issues that are concerning to me.

Although I have just started, I really do feel supported and heard by my therapist. I feel confident that she will help me sort through some issues. I’m especially pleased that we live in the same geographic area and share a similar background.
After months of trying to find someone who is taking on new patients, I was about to give up. It really is a great platform.
