    The work that I do brings me tremendous joy and meaning. As someone with a rich tapestry of life experiences, including my own personal challenges and losses, I am honored to be in this role of accompanying othes as they navigate change, stressors, and obstacles on their path toward wellness and resiliency.

    During my many years in the mental health profession, clients I’ve known have described me as warm, fun, direct when it’s beneficial, and “a gentle spirit” who is open and accepting, down-to-earth, and compassionate.

    My approach is particularly well suited for people who have been struggling with trauma, anxiety, grief, or life transitions and are now ready to invest time and energy into a well-deserved healing process.

    Having had the opportunity to explore 60 countries through international travel during the course of my life, I work from a framework of cultural humility and welcome clients from a wide range of cultural backgrounds.

    I know from personal experience how challenging it can be to begin a healing journey. If you have questions about whether online therapy may be helpful for you at this time, I encourage you to reach out for a free phone consultation. {link to Contact page}

    My Background

    I was born and raised in New Hampshire and spent over 20 years in the Boston area. Having grown tired of New England winters, I moved to North Carolina in 2014. Activities I enjoy include reading, the arts, yoga, spending time with friends, and rescuing and fostering animals.

    From the time I was a teenager, I knew that I wanted to follow a career path that would allow me to work with people as they improved their lives.

    Over the years, I gained experience in a variety of fields. I worked in business and non-profit development, including at the Boston YWCA and Harvard Medical School, and in higher education as a career counselor and student advisor. In my spare time, I volunteered for different organizations, including at a children’s hospital, in a cardiac intensive care unit, at a hospice agency, and as an English as a Second Language tutor.

    All of this was rewarding, but still, it seemed something important was missing from my life. Finally, during my mid-thirties, I decided to pursue my true calling and began working on my master’s degree in Counseling Psychology. During graduate school, I completed my practicum and internships at Boston College in the Alcohol and Drug Education Office and at Mount Auburn Hospital, an affiliate of Harvard Medical School, in the Prevention and Recovery Center in Cambridge, MA.

    After earning my M.Ed. in Counseling Psychology, I spent ten years providing psychotherapy and case management services to older adults at West Central Behavioral Health in NH. Most recently, I worked as a clinician providing psychotherapy to individuals with serious mental illnesses at a community mental health center in North Carolina. In 2021, after 19 years of experience working in the mental health field, I opened my private practice, Paths to Healing and Wellness.
