My practice is dedicated to enhancing relationships of all kinds and increasing satisfaction in connections to self and others.
Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Westbrook, ME
I hold a Masters degree in Marriage and Family Therapy. I am trained in Gottman Method and Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy. I have treated couples/ relationships of all kinds. I am sex / kink positive and LGBTQ supportive.
I have specific training in trauma including Certification in Brainspotting, Accelerated Resolution Therapy and Equine Assisted psychotherapy.
I have worked in a substance use treatment center and treated those with substance use issues for 5+ years. I have personal experience with recovery and worked in the treatment industry before becoming a therapist.
I am trained in family systems theory and use it as the guiding theory behind all other approaches. I often use genograms and explore family of origin issues in my therapy.
I am trained in and practice Embodied Equine Psychotherapy™, which is an experiential, somatic and relational approach to working with clients and horses. I combine this approach with my knowledge of relationships, connection and trauma to create a unique and healing experience for my clients.
I am a certified brainspotting practitioner, which means I have completed Phase 1 and 2 trainings, completed 6 consultations and have completed over 50 brainspotting sessions. I used brainspotting as my primary treatment approach for not only trauma, but many other presenting concerns clients bring. It is also my preferred treatment approach for my own therapy.
