About me

I am licensed in Maine with 9 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with coping with addictions, LGBTQ+ -related issues, trauma and abuse, & anger management. I believe that you are the expert of your story and that you have many strengths that will assist you in overcoming life’s hurdles that challenge you. I like to help my clients understand how self-talk and inner beliefs can hold us back or push us forward. Taking the first step in seeking a more fulfilling and happier life takes courage. I am here to support you in that process.
