About me

I am a licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor in New Hampshire (License # 2518) with 3 years of clinical mental health counseling experience. I have experience in helping clients with trauma and abuse, parenting issues, motivation, self esteem, and confidence. I am a Professional Member of the American Mental Health Counselors Association (AMHCA). As a Clinical Mental Health Counselor, I am governed by the AMHCA Code of Ethics.
I have a Master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, 2019, from Southern New Hampshire University Manchester, NH. I am also a Reiki Master which I currently do not practice on others. I use it for my own personal growth and spirituality.
Before entering private practice, I worked with families who are working with DCYF on reunification due to neglect or abuse at Home Base Collaborative Family Counseling (HBCFC). I have also worked with students who have difficulties engaging in school by helping develop a School to Home Connections program at HBCFC. I was the DBT Coordinator at HBCFC and completed the Marsha Linehan, Dialectical Behavior Therapy Intensive Training from Behavioral Tech facilitated by Anthony P. DuBose, PsyD and Vibh Forsythe-Cox, PhD on 11/14/2022. Currently, I provide individual therapy for a wide variety of difficulties. My main areas of focus are anger, anxiety, depression, and adjustment issues. I work with all ages.
I use many different modalities such as CBT, Person Center, Solution Focused, and DBT. Since my DBT training I have focused on using DBT skills (mindfulness, interpersonal effectiveness, distress tolerance, Walking the Middle Path, and emotion regulation). DBT is an evidenced based practice and although the strongest evidence exists for DBT as a treatment for people with borderline personality disorder, DBT has been found to be effective for a wide variety of mental health conditions and a way to make your life worth living.
I believe that you are the expert of your story and that you have many strengths that will assist you in overcoming things that challenge you. It takes courage to seek out a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. I am here to support & empower you in that journey.
