I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC) and have been practicing in Portland, ME since 2011. In addition to my private practice, I am an Employee Assistance Program counselor, and I provide career counseling and resume development services to new graduates, current professionals, and professionals re-entering the workforce. Prior to becoming a counselor I enjoyed a successful 14 year career in Human Resources.
Education and Training
I hold a Masters degree in Counseling with a focus in clinical mental health from the University of Southern Maine and a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of New Hampshire.
I have pursued additional studies in the areas of clinical hypnosis; Buddhist psychology; brain/neuroscience; mindfulness, mind/body, and alternative therapies; trauma and PTSD; women’s health and wellness; and other modality focused trainings, such as Internal Family Systems and Motivational Interviewing. In addition, I completed a 40 hour hospice training, with an emphasis on grief and bereavement.
I am currently a member of the American Mental Health Counselors Association and the Maine Mental Health Counselors Association.
