Respect for individuals inner self-knowing and my desire to be with whatever problems or pain being faced, is what moves my clients forward. Not being alone in one's experience's is key to healing. If we are a good match, our connection invites my clients to appreciate that their anxiety, depression and relationship issues are merely the body and minds way of attempting to restore health. Nurturing the healthy parts creates greater acceptance and self trust for all aspects of oneself. The resultant comfort allows one to approach, what may have felt like ominous misguided symptoms, with compassion.

I approach my work through an attachment-based orientation, emphasizing attunement to each client's needs and an appreciation of his or her unique strengths and challenges. My clinical background and areas of interest include working with children and adults experiencing trauma, PTSD, grief, depression and anxiety and challenges associated with life transitions. I utilize mindfulness and cognitive-behavioral interventions to improve coping, enhance positive self-talk and promote awareness of self-defeating patterns of thinking and behavior. Other therapeutic techniques I employ are psychodynamic therapy, play therapy, expressive arts, body-centered psychotherapy and trauma-focused treatment models.

For all of its rewards, parenting is also incredibly challenging. Do you find yourself thinking . . . I dread putting her to bed every night because I know it will be a struggle. I can't go to the grocery store because he always has a meltdown at checkout. We'll never to able to go out to eat as a family. Why does he only eat yellow foods?! You're not alone. Many parents struggle with how to address their child's challenging behaviors. My goal is to teach you how to use behavioral strategies to turn chaos into calm.

I believe that we all consist of “parts” - facets of ourselves that formed in response to life experiences, beliefs, and felt emotions. Here is the twist: the parts we resist and outlaw in ourselves seep through the cracks of our fragmented soul and manifest as undesirable behavior with unwanted outcomes. For this reason, we stay stuck and parts of us remain unfulfilled and unattended. These are your warrior parts that helped you survive throughout your life. They don’t want to be rejected or blamed. They don't need fixing. They want to be understood, accepted, and to ultimately belong.

Many of us feel alone with our suffering and haven't been taught how to address it. I find that a compassionate focus on the parts of us that suffer brings meaningful change. At some point we eventually discover we've developed behaviors that were once adaptive or self-protective but no longer serve us, or that we are in relationships that bring emotional strain. I use a Jungian and relational technique, with the attempt to stay focused on emotions in the present while uncovering the depths of the unconscious and buried past traumas.

We all need support because at times life can be difficult. It may be enough to talk with friends or other people you trust but sometimes not. Maybe you are feeling alone or not connected with yourself and people around you. Therapy can be a way to help you reconnect. I offer a genuine environment in which we look together how you can get back on track. I believe that connection is a basic human need: being connected with yourself and with the people around you. This is a core value in all of my work.

What creates change? The evidence suggests that it’s primarily what happens in the rest of your life, outside of therapy, that creates change. Therapy, then, is an incubator to digest those changes or workshop strategies to initiate them. What works in therapy? Within our sessions, the primary driver of change is the fit between you and I. The rapport we build fosters your investment in, anticipation of, and tools for change. My theoretical background provides structure to our explorations — but it isn’t theory that will ‘fix’ you! The interventions which we create together will be the spark for transformation to happen.
