Most would describe my style as interactive and relational.  I borrow from an eclectic range of treatment modalities, including Internal Family Systems (IFS), Mindfulness-Based Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Emotionally-Focused Therapy (EFT), Brainspotting, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and psychodynamic approaches.  I work with the client(s) to find the approach that is the best fit and helps the client most effectively reach their goals.  I’m particularly oriented towards approaches that go beyond “coping” to establish more fundamental and authentic relief.

Mindfulness is a core component of my practice.  In short, this means I participate with an open heart and mind and spirit of unconditional acceptance.  Through our work, my clients and I not only identify problematic mental and emotional patterns, but establish a means for resolving these patterns through practices of mindful, compassionate investigation.  The work is not always easy, but true transformation is possible for those willing to engage their own growth and healing.  I aspire to make that transformation as accessible and gentle as possible.

Most of my work is done in-person at my private office in Norwich, Vermont, though I also offer virtual (telehealth) sessions to those who live in Vermont or New Hampshire.  My office is a quiet, peaceful environment about five minutes from Norwich and Hanover town centers.  Typically, our initial intake session is an hour.  Subsequent visits are generally around 45 minutes long.
