My Approach

It is my belief that within each of us lies the potential for personal growth and positive change. I use an Existential-Humanistic approach to therapy, which involves exploring and discovering one's unique and authentic self. In this work, we will explore themes such as choice, responsibility, meaning, purpose, and authenticity so that you may discover a more intentional way of being.

I also believe that we experience distress when we struggle to reconcile how things are with the way we want them to be. When this is the case, it can feel like we’ve lost control of our lives, that the world is happening to us, or we’ve lost a sense of who we are. I help clients become empowered to reclaim their lives so that they may live intentionally, authentically, and with integrity, as active players in the creation of their own life experience.

My Background

I hold a Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Goddard College with a concentration is Sexual Orientation and specialized training in working with lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer clients.

My education and training have prepared me to work with clients struggling with a diverse range of issues. I am particularly interested in exploring issues that relate to depression, anxiety, lack of fulfillment, life transitions, relationship issues, personal growth, LGBTQ issues, and polyamory & consensual non-monogamy.
