 Courageous Steps Counseling

Home: Welcome

Moving You Forward

Welcome! If you have found my page, I commend you for taking an active step towards your healing journey. Finding the right therapist can be challenging to say the least. It is my hope that you will be able to read through my webpage to get a sense of who I am, and how I work.

Many clients come to me feeling anxious, depressed, and disconnected from themselves and the people around them. Some clients have come from traumatic backgrounds, have negative relational experiences, or come from seemingly "perfect childhoods" and are confused why they are feeling emotionally stuck.

I understand how confusing and helpless that can feel. We will work together to make sense of it all, and bring a feeling of wholeness as you step into your most authentic self and live your best life.

About Me

I met my husband in 2003 and we have been married 17+ years. We have four very different sons, and one we never met through the loss of miscarriage. We enjoy hiking, dragging the kids along and forcing them to "enjoy family time." I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor, and Masters Licensed Drug and Alcohol Counselor serving clients in New Hampshire and Maine. My approach has been influenced by training in Interpersonal Neurobiology with Dan Siegal, Narrative-Focused Trauma with Dan Allender, and Relational Life Therapy with Terry Real.

 You can learn more about my approaches by visiting:

Dan Siegal on Interpersonal Neurobiology

Dan Allender on Narrative-Focused Trauma Care
