I am a Vermont Registered Psychotherapist offering individual counseling for
children, adolescents, and young adults in my private practice office
located in downtown Brattleboro.
I also travel and provide counseling services to students of The Putney School, a private progressive boarding school in Putney, VT. 
As a Registered Psychotherapist, I work under the supervision of a Licensed Mental Health Counselor with over 30 years experience working with children, adolescents and adults.
I received my MA in Counseling and DMT from Antioch University New England, and my BFA in Modern Dance from New York University.
Additional trainings that enhance my scope of practice include:
  • Rehearsing Connection:  Fostering Recovery from Relational Trauma through DMT

In addition to being a psychotherapist, I am also a Registered Dance/Movement Therapist (R-DMT) with experience facilitating dance/movement therapy groups in a variety of settings

(schools, hospitals, community centers) with populations ranging from

preschool and elementary aged children, psychiatric adolescents, as well as
adults with intellectual and physical disabilities.
