I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC), License #CC2192, invested in the co-creation of the therapeutic process. I utilize several therapeutic modalities including but not limited to EMDR Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy and Psychodynamic Therapy. I also employ visualization techniques and body self-scanning to assist clients in identifying and managing feelings and emotions.
To live an authentic life is to live fully. I believe in showing up for life; in embracing life's challenges as opportunities for growth, healing and self-discovery. I am committed to a belief in the inherent worth and dignity of all persons. I am dedicated to the development of human potential; a commitment to building cooperation, trust and fellowship; an understanding of life as process; an appreciation of the spiritual and the intuitive. I acknowledge that all persons are individual. I recognize the profound problems affecting the world and a responsibility to contribute to hope and constructive change. I am committed to the role of helper, guide and advocate.
I encourage my clients to be actively involved and personally responsible for the co-creation of their therapeutic work. Our work together will include issue identification, exploration and reflection, goal setting and resolution.
I will help clients realize their true potential, heal old hurts, restore balance and dissolve unhealthy patterns of behavior.
I balance my subjective knowledge and experiences with that of my clients to better understand their intrinsic qualities and processes. I am open to others' ways of thinking and being and celebrate that within the context of the work.
Recognizing the unique style and personality of each client, I will utilize my multi-modal approach to meet you where you are in your process.
My interest in the human process began at an early age. I was always curious about why we are the way we are. I continued on that vein by choosing to study interpersonal and organizational communication, earning a BA in Communication from the University of Southern Maine. After spending some years working in corporate settings, I returned to school and earned my MA in Counseling Psychology. I also continue to utilize trainings/workshops to maintain licensure and also to ensure clients receive modalities of best practice. Along with LCPC licensure, I maintain board certifications as a Nationally Certified Counselor, Certificate #257325 and Board Certified-Telemental Health Practitioner, Certificate #360.
