I graduated from Dartmouth College in 1985 with a B.A. in International Politics and received an M.A. in Community Counseling Suma Cum Laude from Fairfield University’s Graduate School of Education and Allied Professions.
I have been in practice for almost 20 years. I am a member of the National Board of Certified Counselors(NBCC), the American Counseling Association (ACA), and the Association for Marriage and Family Therapists (AMFT). In addition, I am a member and former chapter-president of Chi Sigma Iota, an international association committed to the pursuit of excellence in the field of counseling. I am nationally certified as a Counselor and Clinical Mental Health Counselor and licensed by the states of CT and FL.
I love what I do. My "brand" is creating the best therapeutic relationship I can with each client. A strong counseling relationship means connecting on a human level and prefer sessions to be conversational while still maintaining professionalism. I am non-judgmental and truly care. Our partnership will provide a strong foundation so you can try new things, change old habits, and start over again.
I try to make the sessions conversational and, when appropriate, not too serious! Change doesn't have to be boring!
I help my clients with the typical stressors of life such as stress management, performance frustration, career change, divorce, relationship issues, sexual issues, parenting, and aging. On a more clinical level, I work with those struggling with serious psychological disorders such as depression, anxiety, and eating disorders.
I see couples for conflict resolution, infidelity, communication, a family loss, childrearing stressors, illness, and trauma. I help with communication skills, emotional regulation, family boundaries, intimacy and sexuality. As individuals grow and change, so does the relationship. Therapy often helps to calibrate the relationship so both partners are getting what they want and need.
Using a refined assessment tool called Symbis, I work with couples to determine areas of compatibility and conflict and work with the individuals to communicate to create awareness of their particular dynamic. We will explore, sexuality, finances, parenting, in law boundaries, and conflict resolution
I will see clients for individual or couples counseling over a video conferencing service that is HIPAA compliant meaning your privacy is secure. However, I prefer to start therapy with a one on one meeting in order to establish a relationship.
I successfully passed the training and will be applying for certification with the American Association of Certified Sex Counselors, Teachers, and Therapists. The training gives me the skills counsel people with sexual dysfunction - both physical and psychological, issues around intimacy and sexuality, loss of desire, gender identity, paraphilia, and issues within the LGBTQ community. counseling therapy marriage counseling
