About My Clients

Throughout my career I have been fortunate to work with people from many walks of life and cultures. From people who struggle with homelessness to CEOs, from students (high school and college) to those recently incarcerated, and to people across the age and gender spectrum. As a former expat and military member, with an international family, I also offer significant insight into what many third country and uniformed service professionals experience. My practice is open and affirming to all.

My Background and Approach

I am an Advanced Alcohol & Drug Counselor in VT, NH, & MA and a Clinical Mental Health Counselor in VT & NH. Everyone has a journey. This one began in 2008 while living in Tokyo, Japan. I was a recent USAF veteran teaching English as a Second language (ESL), volunteering on what was then Japan's only English speaking crisis phone line on evenings and weekends. In fact, there was just one phone! It was then that I understood my passion for helping people to resolve problems, and to live meaningful and fulfilling lives. I offer an integrative approach which includes EMDR and aspects of Buddhist Psychology. I was trained in Attachment-Focused EMDR (AF-EMDR) by Dr. Laurel Parnell and help people process through anxiety, fears, phobias, trauma, compulsive behaviors and addiction issues - and to help increase self-confidence, assertiveness, productivity, and for enhancing personal performance. My approach is grounded in helping you remove blockages and engage in your life more meaningfully.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that in every situation, each person is striving to be the best version of themselves and that all people desire love and acceptance from others. As a fellow human being, I know what it means to fight just to stay afloat. By coming together we will move your ship toward shore. Tapping into your internal resources, we will connect to your body’s natural healing ability and work together to shift the impact of stress. By doing so, you will create pathways allowing you to connect to your life with more energy, creativity, and with a sense of freedom.

I have experience with the following
  • Agnosticism
  • Atheism
  • Buddhism
  • Christianity
  • Interfaith
  • Multifaith
