Grief and loss
Change for the better.
Change is hard work and I want to help. Addiction, trauma, depression and relationship issues can bring us to places we would rather not be. We can get stuck in uncomfortable and unhealthy habits and patterns that keep us from becoming the best possible versions of ourselves.
I believe that change can happen when we thoroughly examine the beliefs and thought patterns that have kept us from moving in a positive direction and take decisive measures to change them. And I firmly believe that once a barrier to success is identified and named, it can be removed and then anything is possible.
I am also convinced that therapy is partnership and very definitely a working relationship. Trust and confidence are key components, and my job as a therapist is to create a space for you to feel safe in the exploration of what it is that makes you “tick” and what, exactly, has been holding you back. I believe that every person I work with holds the key to their own happiness, and my work is about helping to clear away whatever is keeping that key hidden.
I am a therapist with experience working with clients across a wide spectrum of backgrounds and challenges. I view Cognitive Behavioral Therapy as my home base, but also employ elements of Internal Family Systems, Mindfulness Meditation Technique and Narrative Therapy in my work.
In the past, I have worked in a large agency setting with clients suffering from the effects of addiction and from severe mental health crisis. I feel that in this private, more focused setting, I am most able to serve the needs of those who seek my help in leading amazing lives.
I spent years as a craftsman before being called to do this work. I live in Vermont with my family and a dog named Sharky.

I accept Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Medicaid and all forms of cash/check/credit payment. If insurance or payment is an issue, please do not let that stand in the way! I can make almost anything work and am happy to see clients on a “sliding scale” basis.
