I like to talk about the real stuff. There’s not much that offends me or freaks me out. Yoga and meditation are ways I’ve found helpful to separate from the on-going internal chatter most of us have and to arrive back in our lives in real time. In my office I’m happy to teach meditation and sometimes I have clients who enjoy starting a therapy session with a few minutes of meditation to help them get centered on what they want to talk about that day.
I love my work and I love living in Maine.
And for my professional background: I graduated with an MA in Counseling Psychology from Naropa University in Boulder, CO in 2002. Naropa is a Buddhist-inspired university and my program integrated meditation and spirituality with clinical psychology. I moved to Maine that Fall and worked in social work and crisis counseling. In the Spring of 2007 I began my private practice.
