About Me

I received my Master’s Degree in Social Work from the University of New Hampshire in 2010, and since have practiced as a psychotherapist in a variety of different settings.  My clinical background includes work with children and adolescents in a community mental health environment coupled with school-based therapy.  After acquiring my independent licensure for the State of New Hampshire in 2013, I relocated to a group private practice for adults ages 18+.  I continue to provide psychotherapy for adults at my current business location as a solo practitioner.
My view of therapy is an opportunity to engage in a collaborative process by which the therapist and client work together towards enriching lifestyle and enhancing overall well-being.  Additional treatment modalities I draw from include cognitive-behavioral therapy techniques aimed to help reframe and replace negative thought patterns leading to healthier responses in challenging situations.  Furthermore, I work from a strengths-based perspective that amplifies each individual's unique qualities through the process of self-discovery, healing, acceptance and forgiveness of self and others.
