I have been in private practice for almost 20 years working with adults and couples. I attended Dartmouth College and earned my Masters Degree at Columbia University and Fairfield University. I am a Nationally Certified Counselor, a Licensed Professional Counselor, and a Licensed Mental Health Counselor. I belong to the American Counseling Association and the National Board for Certified Counselors.

I believe that the therapeutic relationship I build with my client should be one based on empathy, unconditional positive regard, and respect. My job is to help you help yourself and to guide you toward a purposeful life.

Parenting is the most important role that we can play. We not only care for the physical needs of our children, but we shape their attitudes about life and relationships, role model how we prioritize the demands of life, and most importantly, provide a safe haven where they can express their feelings, thoughts, and desires without fear of judgment or rejection.

The manner in which you manage your co-parenting relationship will have a long lasting effect on the well-being of your child. I look forward to working with you to let go of the past and to start fresh to be the best co-parents you can be.
