MS, LPCA, NCC
I am a licensed professional counselor associate whose calling is to help others heal, gain insight and harness the power within. In addition to a Master's degree in counseling, I have specialized training in EMDR to effect growth and change.
After working in the corporate world in both sales and management positions, my desire to help others led me to a twenty-three year career in education. More recently, I worked as a Middle School counselor at The Fletcher School. Currently, I am in private practice, offering counseling services to adolescents and adults.
I understand that seeking help can be a difficult first step.
Whether you are seeking a safe place to heal from past experiences, improve your relationships, cope with emotional challenges or develop strategies to maximize your potential, my intention is to assist you in reaching your goals. I utilize evidence based techniques from EMDR, humanistic, cognitive behavioral, family systems and strength-based approaches.
The therapy partnership means that we work together to help you navigate whatever it is that distresses you. You are your own expert. I am here to support you in realizing just how much you know about your experience, and how you can impact positive change going forward.
It is my goal to create a safe space for growth where you can feel understood and accepted without judgement. Together we will work both in the here and now as well as drawing from the past.
