I am a conditionally licensed clinical professional counselor practicing in Portland and Brunswick, Maine.
I take a collaborative approach to counseling and believe that each client carries with them the answers necessary to move toward change and healing. Whether you are working toward a particular goal or engaging in a broader process of self discovery, it is my job to facilitate, engage, and empower. I encourage clients to draw on their own internal assets while building skills and strengthening resources. It is the client and counselor together, who set the tone for sessions and determine the course of therapeutic work.
We all have areas in our lives that we would like to develop and improve. Together, we can work on concerns such as anxiety, depression, trauma, sexuality, LGB, men’s issues, chronic illness, academics, and identity development. A specialty of my practice is transgender and transsexual clients and their families.
I draw on an eclectic range of therapeutic approaches, including Psychodynamic, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Interpersonal Neurobiology, Mindfulness, Narrative Therapy, and Multicultural Counseling. We will work together in a safe and collaborative environment to set and follow the trajectory toward your own definition of success.
