Therapy & Counseling / Posted 2 weeks ago
I believe a therapeutic relationship is grounded in trust, respect, genuineness, openness and connection. Together, we will build a safe and nonjudgmental space that allows you to be honest, reflective, and work on what is important to you. It is critical that my clients feel heard, understood, respected, and that your needs are central. I will empower you, as the expert in your experience, to look at what you’d like to change and build on your strengths to achieve your goals. My theoretical approach is informed by Person-Centered Therapy, developed by Carl Rogers who said “when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change”. Additionally, other theoretical frameworks that inform my work include Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Feminist Therapy, and trauma-informed practices. I specialize in working with youth, young adults, and families in a variety of issues including depression, anxiety, PTSD, substance use, family dynamics, and stress. I have been with Riverstone since 2017, and graduated with my master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the University of Vermont. My practice is affirmative and liberatory—all are welcome.
