Vermont Licensed Clinical Social Worker since 1989. My goal with each individual is to grow a strong, trusting therapeutic partnership that aids in problem resolution and growth. Throughout all interactions, I remain a compassionate, caring, steady presence, and always strive to create a safe, nurturing space to maximize the potential of our work together. I approach each individual in a respectful, interactive, collaborative way, to assist them in finding their voice, rewriting their story and creating new chapters of their lives that align more closely with their goals. Together we can explore the whole person, including individual concerns, health/wellness, relationships, family, career, social and community connections. I bring a blend of theories to my sessions including Cognitive Behavioral, Solution Focused, Strengths Based, Client Centered and Narrative therapies. I invite my clients to provide me feedback about how our work together is progressing.
