Thank you for taking time to read about my work. I am a clinical psychologist (PhD, UCLA, 1991) and have been providing psychotherapy to individuals and couples for over twenty five years. My approach integrates insight oriented/depth psychotherapy with mindfulness/meditation within a framework of body awareness. A central part of therapy is the mutually created caring and healing relationship. If we work together, time will be devoted to building a trusting, safe and containing relationship where early (developmental) as well as more recent challenges can be discussed, explored and healed.

Mindfulness and Somatic/body oriented approaches to therapy are central elements of my work with clients. Close attention is paid to recognizing, understanding and working with physiological and nervous system experience (such as is seen in fight, flight or freeze responses), sensation and states of arousal and deep relaxation.

As a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner, balance is maintained between attending to thoughts, emotions, and sensation. My work is practical, and focused on facilitating change. The rhythm is active and engaged, carefully paced, and focused on releasing stress while building robust emotional and body resources, rhythm and flow.
