Fifteen years ago, something happened that changed me as a therapist: I became a parent. While I already had a doctorate in clinical psychology under my belt, had worked with children in many different settings, and had even taught university courses in psychology, becoming a parent myself was a game-changer.

I understand how difficult it is to be the parents we want to be and how life can get in the way of our greatest intentions. Being a parent has the potential to be both incredibly challenging and incredibly rewarding – often in the same day!

I understand that children come to us “wired” with their own unique personalities, and what works for one child doesn’t work for every child. Each child has their own strengths and their own challenges. So do parents!

I know it can be overwhelming to say, “I think our family needs help. My child is struggling.” And maybe even, “I’m struggling.” As a parent, so much of us is wrapped up in our child’s well-being. When our kids are having a hard time, guilt, fear, and self-doubt tend to creep in.

When I work with children and parents, I use my education, training, and professional experience to ensure I am providing the best care that I can. I also bring warmth, humor, compassion, respect, and an understanding of the realities of family life.

I grew up in Vermont and lived in a few different states before settling down in Pennsylvania after graduate school.  I live in Carlisle with my husband, our two children, and a very rambunctious pup. In my free time I enjoy reading, puzzles, exercise, and sunshine, as well as the occasional road trip back to Vermont. I am passionate about social justice, human rights, and giving back to the community. I am thrilled to provide services in the community that I call home!
