I grew up in a small town in central Ohio and have lived in several places in the midwest and on the East Coast.  My partner and I recently relocated to Burlington, VT; a place I have visited many times over the years and grown to love.  Burlington brings together the intimate feel of a small town with the cultural amenities and creativity of a larger city and beautiful outdoor spaces all around… what’s not to love!  When I am not in my role as a therapist, you might find me hiking, biking, going to concerts, or spending time with my partner and our two dogs.  I particularly love music, poetry, and animals.

 

I would describe myself as an intensely curious person.  I love to be an explorer of the world around me through reading, travel, and outdoor activity.  I have always had an affinity for asking questions, for wondering “why” and “how” (maybe that is one of the reasons I was drawn to this work)!  I strongly believe that once we feel certain we know the answers we begin to close off opportunities for being impacted by and connected to the world and people around us.  For me, openness and curiosity are as vital as breath and water, and my work and personal life are significantly influenced by these values.

If you spend a little time with me, you will probably notice how much I am also influenced by the values of midwestern simplicity and pragmatism in which I was raised.  While I can relish at times in the drifting clouds of possibility and wonder, I also firmly value the parts of me that help me stay grounded.  One way that I do this is through the use of humor. While I don’t promise that you will find me funny, I do promise that I won’t take myself too seriously even while holding space for the seriousness of many of life’s challenges.  

 

I hope that this has helped you start to develop a feel for what it might be like to sit with me in my office.
