Accepting life on life’s terms is one of the most challenging opportunities we all face. Without support and guidance we often experience feelings of fear, worry, anger, grief, depression and anxiety. I provide a safe, non-judgmental approach to recognizing unrealized skills and supports in meeting the challenges circumstances, people, situations and previous experiences life presents.   I have worked with individuals and families struggling with many different difficulties, offering strength based, client centered, solution focused approaches based on honesty, open mindedness, and a willingness to work toward change and acceptance.

Currently my practice has focused on treating young adults making difficult decisions while enrolled in college. I have also specialized in the treatment of alcohol and drug addiction as it relates to mental health issues.  For the past 10 years I have concentrated on assisting individuals struggling with substance dependency and alcoholism co-occurring with mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, trauma, PTSD, grief, and life transitions. In my work I have helped people with career changes, interpersonal and family conflicts, health related issues, self-esteem and self-confidence difficulties.

I am a graduate of the University of NH with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology, a Master of Science degree in Community Mental Health Counseling and am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor receiving much of my training and experience working in community based settings.
