Wanting change is hard. When I started my own work, It seemed like some kind of dream that things could be even a little different. Somatic Therapy was the magic that brought me through complex trauma and back to myself, to my emotions and to the possibility for connection and joy. When I work with you, I bring my training but I also bring my whole self. I am warm, compassionate, and above all present. Coming to therapy is a radical act of bravery and trust. I have the utmost respect for this act and will meet you with both my big heart and protective spirit.

We are all faced with many struggles today related to COVID-19, its health and safety issues, possible financial loss, and uncertainty about what the future may bring and now the fires. I have been fortunate over many years to experience wonderful people grappling with difficulties around work, relationships, parenting, illness and/or other potentially painful aspects of life. The work that we do in psychotherapy is individually tailored to help clients to reduce emotional (and sometimes physical) pain and to take the actions (small or big) that we figure out need to be done to face these difficult situations and make them better.

Through many years of teaching and practicing Brief Psychotherapy, I have learned the value of a highly active, focused and interactive approach-- both for long term and brief psychotherapy. Whether the patient is an individual or a couple, I view my task as helping to define appropriate goals and keeping the therapy on track. While the purpose of the therapeutic journey is mutually decided and the patient is an active partner in evaluating the route, I particularly direct the journey when it turns to the past. While history is invariably interesting, therapeutic efficiency requires exploring only what's potentially most useful.
