ABOUT ME

I am an LCPC-c with a private practice in Portland. I initially arrived to Maine as a midwifery student and eventually ended up at Hospice of Southern Maine, asa bereavement counselor working with individuals 

and facilitating groups for grieving families. I have continued my work in hospice as a volunteer, where I currently serve the needs of dying patients. 

Sharing space with others as life is coming in, and going out, has grown my deep commitment to honoring the depth of each transition we find ourselves in. I believe that grace can be found in some of our darkest times and that therapy can buoy us towards greater health, as we make our way.

 

I have a Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Goddard College. My educational focus is on intergenerational legacies of loss and trauma, as well as the important experiences of differentiation and interpersonal connection. I am actively involved 

in many experiential groups and trainings, in which I continue to expand and strengthen my skills and interest in working with clients through their emotional processes.            

 

 
APPROACH

 The goal of therapy is to support the client's own inherent desire and ability towards health and growth. Therapy has further potential to allow us to feel more alive as we experience our full emotional processes.

  The foundation of my therapeutic approach is relational.  I believe that the authenticity and connection between therapist and client is fundamental to any work we do together. I incorporate methods from Client Centered Therapy, Emotional Focused Therapy and Psychodynamic 

Theory.  Each client arrives with their own unique self, and story, at a specific moment on their journey.  Together we get to discover what best supports you at this time.
