I hold both a Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and a Bachelor’s degree in Health Arts and Sciences from Goddard College in Plainfield, Vermont. My personal and professional experiences as a mother, daughter, trauma-informed mental health counselor, childbirth assistant, postpartum doula, Hospice volunteer, holistic health practitioner, Therapeutic Touch practitioner, social justice advocate, writer and martial artist all inform my approaches to wellness and health.
Since 2000, I have worked in human services in a wide variety of settings. My special areas of interest are trauma, grief, postpartum depression, domestic violence, differing abilities, holistic health, fitness promotion and mindfulness-based stress reduction.
I also firmly believe in a team approach to healing and will support you in creating a sense of community care.
My intent is always to facilitate movement toward health on multiple levels: personal, familial, professional and community wellness. My work is informed by humanistic, person-centered, trauma-aware, liberation and anti-racist theory as well as personal and professional experience in a range of systems where individuals are striving to navigate the personal and cultural effects of intersecting identities in a complex world.
