I’ve been working with individuals, couples and families, specializing in trauma and relationships for almost 15 years. I have been extensively trained in DBT (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy), CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) and IFS (Internal Family Systems). As a Gottman trained therapist, I apply skills that encourage healthy dialogue in all sessions while encouraging boundary and goal setting for more effective communication while treating underlying psychological and emotional trauma. I am also a Board Certified Marriage and Family Therapist. I am certified as an EQ Relationship and Emotional Coach.
My background includes positions as a Child Play Therapist, clinician at an Abused Women and Children’s Shelter and providing therapy to six Foster Homes. I have also managed psychiatric units in two prisons. These community based experiences have provided broad exposure to a wide variety of social issues and learning to develop realistic solutions.
It is my goal to establish a safe space where you feel heard, validated and can learn to develop healthy habits, including how to process your emotions and promote change. Your self-esteem and confidence is imperative to this healing process. I will encourage you to further learn how to grow self respect and love for oneself. Whether you choose to engage in individual or group sessions, you can be assured that you will be made to feel welcome and treated with empathy and understanding.
I am a military wife and mother of two active duty members and a high school senior. On a personal note, my hobbies include finding great bargains, home projects and creating new recipes! I currently reside on the Canadian/US border in NY with my fabulous husband of 21 years and daughter.
If I’m not working, sleeping or eating, you can find me loving my fur babies; Chinook the Husky, Osa the Great Pyrenees and Seiche the Chiwennie!
