"As a licensed psychologist with over 30 years experience, I provide individual therapy to adults. I work holistically, consider the whole person and believe in the connections between mind, body and spirit; thoughts, feelings and behaviors and the past and the present. I work actively with clients to identify and gain a better understanding of the influence of past experiences, inner conflicts and struggles and self-defeating thought and behavior patterns on current difficulties. We work collaboratively to develop strategies to remove barriers, come to new understandings, build on strengths and capabilities, and develop effective coping skills."

"I help clients to let go of patterns and beliefs that don't fit with the desires and goals they dream of. With deep empathy, soulful grounding and laughter, I guide clients to experience meaning and knowing, relief, and joy. Maybe you feel like you've tried, and you still haven't seen the changes you want. The unfulfilling relationships, habits of pleasing others, self-sabotage, anxiety, and similar difficult situations keep repeating themselves. Maybe you know why, maybe you don't. You think, "if only I could..." but you're just not there...yet!"

"Therapy is a unique experience for each person. It can help you learn about yourself, your relationships (both past and present) and how you interact with the world. It is a place of self healing and understanding. It is a place to find safety and refuge to manage stress,anger, guilt, anxiety, overwhelming feelings, trauma, interpersonal conflict, and significant life events. I work with children, teens, and adults to help address these issues. I am trained as a psychodynamic therapist and practice from a relational standpoint. I draw from several clinical approaches such as cognitive behavioral therapy, attachment theory, and trauma focused therapy as appropriate."

Psychotherapy is often about building or restoring one's inner compass and finding a way to move through life that is fulfilling, meaningful, and satisfying. People are naturally vibrant and healthy. However, our access to that vibrancy often becomes blocked as we adjust to life's challenges.
