About

I have hiked the Adirondack High Peaks, the Appalachian Trail of Maine and the Long Trail of Vermont. Relationships are a journey, full of awesome views with rain soaked days and some suffering. Each couple, family and person is unique and I approach all with curiosity to understand both the successes and challenges that make their story. I listen to learn and appreciate the resilience of each client and the needs of each person in the room. Relationships are precious. I help to make them better.
If you are interested in couples work, I chose the Gottman Model of couple's therapy because couple's get better with it. Couple's like knowing what the research says about the things healthy couples do and not just opinions. Every determined couple has the potential to learn and adopt the healthy practices of good communication, rebuilding trust and commitment, and becoming best friends again. The Gottman model shows you clearly the path towards relationship success and helps you practice the skills to realize your dreams as a couple. It works.
In my individual therapy practice I use evidence based models including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Solution Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. I have become a student of Eli Lebowitz's (Yale University) parent accommodation training (SPACE) for helping parents who have anxious children. Parents don't cause anxiety in their children but they can learn how to help their children independently manage their worries and fears better.
On the Appalachian trail, anonymous people drop off water or food which you stumble upon at the right time; just when you need it. We call those gifts "trail magic". I would like to provide you with just the right support at just the right time. Give me a call or email and we'll talk.
