Professional Context

Specializing in Couples Therapy

Please Note: I am accepting new clients beginning in late October, 2018. Please contact me if you wish to schedule an appointment after that date.

I provide psychotherapy and consultation services to couples who wish to resolve conflicts and improve their relationships. These can include addressing difficult interactional patterns, breaches of trust/infidelity, and communication problems, as well as issues regarding depression, anxiety, anger, fear, grief/loss, stress, and other complex issues.

Couples experiencing these kinds of issues can feel a distance and disconnection from one another.  Successful therapy includes the development of a safe and supportive therapeutic relationship, along with a sound theoretical, effective and practical approach. I utilize an integration of Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT) and Narrative Therapy, along with other empirically supported brief therapy approaches, tailoring the approach to the needs of each client.  My work is additionally influenced by a long-term interest in Buddhism and mindfulness-based practices, as well as by recent work and research on emotions and the brain.

I am Board Certified in Couple and Family Psychology by the American Board of Professional Psychology (ABPP) and licensed as a psychologist in both Vermont and New Hampshire. I have been in practice for over 35 years and continue to enjoy my clinical work. Please visit my Professional Background page for more details on my training.
