About My Practice

I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor in South Burlington, Vermont and Florida and have been in private practice since 2006.

I provide Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) which is considered the gold standard for treating teens and adults with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD).   I see all my clients via Telehealth video counseling.  I believe that difficult life situations provide unique opportunities for growth and learning.  ERP really works and it is very satisfying for me to see my clients reclaim their lives from OCD!

Education and Work Experience:

I received my Bachelor of Arts degree from Middlebury College in 1979. I also received a Master of Science degree in SpeechLanguage Pathology from the University of Vermont (UVM) in 1984. For some 20 years I have provided speech-language services to children, adults and groups in the public schools, at Fletcher Allen Health Care, the Baird Center and at the University of Vermont.

In 2003, I returned to school and earned a Master of Science degree in Counseling in 2006. My direct clinical training included two years of internship and one and a half years as a Triage Counselor at the UVM Counseling Center. I provided counseling to students for anxiety and depression, learning disabilities and led groups, such as the Mindfulness for Living Group, Grief and Loss, and a Support Group for Students with Disabilities. I continue to include work on mindfulness with many of my clients. I have also worked as a Substitute Crisis Clinician with HowardCenter’s Mobile Crisis Team for over two years, and as Counselor/Coordinator of Services for Students with Disabilities at Champlain College for one semester in 2008.   I have also instructed courses as Adjunct Instructor in the Communication Sciences and in the Counseling Graduate Program at UVM. My counseling skills are enriched by over 20 years of experience as a therapist working with children, adolescents, adults and families impacted by a communication disorder. I enjoy seeing older teens and adults, and will often see young teens with a parent or significant other.
