I am licensed in both New Hampshire and Massachusetts. With over 40 years of clinical practice experience, I have worked in agency, clinic, and private practice settings. I was a member of the teaching faculty at Antioch University New England Graduate School in Keene, NH, and served as the Director of Clinical Training for the Masters’ Program in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. For years, I have participated in a variety of continuing education trainings covering a variety of topics.
Prior to the pandemic of 2020 I maintained a physical office in Rindge, New Hampshire, but closed it later that year when teletherapy proved itself to be just as effective as in-person counseling. The convenience of not commuting to the office, having to deal with weather issues, and offering a greater level of privacy and confidentiality, persuaded me to stay virtual on a permanent basis.
My professional work is eclectic which means that I am not locked into any one or two particular approaches to addressing problem situations. I tailor my methods to match the particular needs of my clients. My work is informed by several evidence-based modalities for counseling including cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic, and solution-focused methods.
I enjoy working with individuals, couples and families who want to make meaningful changes in their personal lives. To make these changes, it is important for us to take the time to establish a collaborative relationship, and to mutually understand the desired changes you wish to make. It takes collaboration, and a personal connection to truly see success through therapy. Having clear goals are important too.
