I grew up in Addison County, Vermont and, after living in Connecticut and New York for several years moved to Central Vermont in the late 1980s. I discovered my passion for helping others after working as co-director of Woman Centered, a non-profit center helping women in transition in Central Vermont, in the 1990s. I received my Masters degree in Counseling Psychology at Antioch New England in 2000, and worked as an outpatient clinician at Washington County Mental Health until last July when I left to open a private practice in Montpelier. My more recent interest in energy/somatic work led me to pursue certification as a Sound Healer with Eileen McKusick, Johnson VT in 2011 , and I am currently training as a Somatic Experiencing practitioner (see www.somaticexperiencing.com for more info). Finally, I have been a student of Archetypal Dreamwork for over 20 years and I am excited to work with clients interested in this transformative form of inner exploration and healing.
In addition to my work as a therapist I am active in the community theater scene in Central Vermont. I am also a singer and songwriter and am able to use this experience in my work with children. See my music link for more information.
I live in Central Vermont with my son and husband of nearly 20 years, both fellow thespians and musicians!
