Life is extremely hard at times and we all can  grow and benefit from being in therapy. I believe counseling to be a creative, collaborative spiritual  journey towards growth, adaptation, and healing. I look for and focus on strengths that foster resiliency. I integrate theory and practice  with a caring  humanistic, existential philosophy. I have certifications in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), CBT for Insomnia (CBTI), and Motivational Interviewing (MI).

I am deeply concerned with justice issues. I worked first in the Marshal Islands in pre-Peace Corps conditions. Then, for 25 years as a person with privilege, I both lived and worked in inner cities of Boston, Newark, Jersey City and Paterson. These experiences  give me a valuable perspective on life for Black, Indigenous and Other People of Color, and all others who are treated unjustly and/or are victims and survivors of abuse and violence. I am certified nationally as a nonviolence trainer and have worked for peace and justice issues at peace vigils and given talks throughout New England states about my two educational tours in Palestine and subsequent witness trips.

It is a privilege to journey nonjudgmentally to help others identify and work on goals, overcome obstacles and find joy, meaning and purpose. I  model, facilitate, and help to discover new ways of being, of coping, and of behaving.
