"Addiction covers a broad range of overindulgences: Drugs, alcohol, sex, internet and food all might be sources of concern. While they happily affect the reward center of our brain, they can also go underground to backfire by taking control of our will. Other means of self-soothing do exist and can be tried. The analyst C.G. Jung proposed to Bill, of 12-Step fame, that the alcoholic sought ‘spiritus’ through spirits. He knew that we also need purpose beyond ego. One friend met his 'moment of clarity' seeing his 5-year-old in the backseat as he did "speedballs" in the front. Thereafter, clean & sober! But to get there, we need help."

"As an MFT and a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner, I work with a unique blend of traditional psychotherapy and a felt sense approach. I use several modalities (psychodynamics/ early attachment theories/ experiential/ transpersonal) with body awareness. My specialty is in the renegotiation and the resolution of overwhelming traumatic experience that happened "too fast, too much, too soon" causing debilitating anxiety, depression, stress and loss. With SE, I guide my clients into self-regulating the emotions that have become unmanageable and the nervous system that has been shocked. I also specialize in early attachment deficits and how they manifest in adult life."

"Therapy doesn't have to be a mysterious and confusing process. I believe that it should be linked directly to one's personal goals and desire for change. I'll work with you to enhance your self-knowledge, expand your emotional awareness and thinking to provide you new ways of solving problems and enhancing well-being. My style is direct and collaborative and aims to identify patterns of thinking, feeling, acting and relating that reinforce fears and negative attitudes, thereby limiting your ability to pursue your goals. Exploring the underlying forces and dynamics driving those patterns opens up new avenues for growth and change."

"Positive and healthy experiences in our lives can enrich us, make us feel connected and help us have a clear understanding of what we want and deserve in our lives. However, for many of us we may have also had negative or traumatic experiences which can affect our core belief systems, leaving us feeling unworthy, unlovable or stuck in a variety of other negative thought patterns or behaviors. Please allow me help you to work move towards the life you truly want to be living."

"It often feels that if one area of your life is going well, another takes a nose dive. My clients are determined, successful and focused but still, something is not aligned. Many of those I work with feel they are growing at work, but their personal lives are unfulfilling. Or perhaps relationships feel strong but it feels impossible to manage work and love. I help my clients determine where they want to go and who they want to be. I can help you explore your decisions, the reasons behind them and then make sense of it all. We can work together to identify stressful feelings, increase insight and strengthen relationships."

"Many of my clients are successful professionals who are beginning to question whether they are on the right path. Some are searching for a more creative or spiritual way of life. Others crave relationships of greater substance. Still others seek clarity of purpose. Most feel limited by notions of what they have to be or do for the sake of others. You may have something in common with these people."

"I can work with you to figure out what your goals are and to see what obstacles are getting in the way of achieving these goals. The obstacles can often be in the form of self-defeating beliefs. Becoming aware of these beliefs and how they are holding you back can be a huge relief. Guilt can also be an obstacle, and we can explore how that might be manifesting itself in your life. We can clarify what it is that you truly want both in the short and long-term."

"Many of us possess a feeling that there is a way to live better and to feel better. It's this feeling that drives the work of therapy and stems from an essential experience of feeling healthy, safe, and loved. Being human, by nature, is a perilous journey where we often get lost and hurt and find ourselves in an experience of emotional and physical pain. Coming to therapy means committing to a relationship with a therapist that is in service of finding your truth and a way to feel better."

"I often meet with people who are pretty clear that some good help could really change things for the better-- they want to feel better but have found that self-help plans and behavior-focused therapy have not produced lasting, deep change. These people want to understand themselves better, and how they think about relationships in general. They have a sense that a strong, insight-oriented therapy could shed new light on old, tired-out problems and produce much desired life change."

""And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom" -Anaïs Nin. There are times when we feel lost, confused, even fearful. Perhaps we find ourselves at a crossroads, undergoing life changing experiences. We want to deepen our relationship to all aspects of our lives, and may feel we know where we would like to be, but cannot find a foothold, or begin the journey alone. If any of these relate to your life situation, you are probably ready to enter into the therapeutic process."

The most important result of the first session is that you walk out feeling that I understand you and will be able to be your ally in working through your issues.
