St. Johnsbury, VT

Psychotherapy services to adults, including older teenagers and seniors, individuals and groups. Utilization of EMDR and Internal Family Systems specialties and mindfulness approaches to treat depression, anxiety, trauma, recovery, early intervention to prevent PTSD following trauma and other mental health conditions.

As a psychotherapist, she uses a variety of tools to help you gain a new perspective on what is challenging her patients, bringing out their own strengths and wisdom. Many of these tools are based on mindfulness approaches in which body sensations, emotions, thoughts and inner experiences are explored.

It's a fact that people need to have an awareness of what is going on within themselves and in their relationships in order to move toward a new inner and outer balance. Mindfulness approaches help in slowing down and taking notice, seeing more clearly what is happening and evaluating the results. This makes one feel more empowered and more effective in their lives.

In a society where it is so easy to feel isolated and alienated from others, group therapy is sometimes even more powerful than individual treatment. Because of this, her office is moving toward offering more groups, both for clients and also for clinical consultation.
