I am a rostered psychotherapist in the state of Vermont. I currently practice at the Vermont Counseling and Training Center in St. Albans, VT, under the supervision of Tammie Colburn Consejo, LCMHC, PhD. I see clients both in-person in St. Albans and online anywhere in Vermont through our secure, HIPAA-compliant video system.

Most people start looking for a therapist because something about their life feels too hard to carry alone. Maybe it’s a challenging relationship, a new disability, an old injury, a birth, a death, or fears about climate change. Whatever we call that experience—anxiety, depression, trauma, a life transition, or an opportunity for growth—it helps to talk about it with someone who’s warm, respectful, and kind.

My hope is to help you feel more alive and fulfilled, build your courage to set aside old patterns and try new ones, and support you in finding your own path forward.The bedrock of therapy is a warm, safe, and trusting relationship. From there, depending on what you’re looking for, we might use tools from narrative, Adlerian, or cognitive behavioral therapy. Some people want coaching and practical strategies; some want to explore deep inside themselves; some want both. You set the goals, and we’ll work on them together.

Everybody gets stuck sometimes—nothing wrong with that. But when you’ve been stuck for a while, getting back on track is often easier with some extra help. I believe in empathy, compassion, candor, and a bit of humor, and I’d like to support you in crafting a future you’ll love. If you’re curious about how it would feel to work with me, let’s talk.

It’s really important to feel comfortable with your therapist. A brief initial phone call is a good way to see how it would feel to work together, so if you’re considering working with me, let’s set up a time to talk.
