"As a former social worker and mental health clinician for 20 years I witnessed families going through extreme circumstances of mental illness, addiction, abuse, children with serious emotional and behavioral problems at home and school, and complex custody cases through the court system. This experience taught me the importance of the therapeutic relationship, building safety and trust, open communication, working with people where they are at, and empathy. I believe it is through this process of being seen, heard, feeling valued and safe that the healing process can begin."

"I work with adults-- both individuals and couples in the areas of relationships, substance and sex addiction, mood disorders (anxiety and depression) and life transitions (divorce, empty nest, retirement). Relationships with others (partner, boss, siblings, friends, clients) are a central source of meaning and sometimes difficulty for us. I can work with you around relationship issues, including commitment, communication, sexuality, infidelity and healthy conflict."

"I am a therapist working primarily with women. My clients often describe feeling anxious and burdened by the expectations of others, overwhelmed by school or the work/life balance, or unsatisfied with relationships. Some clients are wondering about the right time to start a family, others have experienced a challenging and emotional road in trying to start their family. Mothers I work with tell me they feel as though they've lost themselves in caring for their growing family, they've lost their connection with those closest to them, and often times their symptoms of Postpartum Depression or Anxiety are sucking the joy out of motherhood."

"Einstein said, 'We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used to create them.' I've found applying Buddhist ideas and Jungian techniques to one's problems can speed up a motivated person's desire to fulfill more of their potential, even while living in these manic times. Findings in neuroscience overwhelmingly confirm the efficacy of the long traditions of Buddhist thought on how to train oneself to abandon old, familiar reactions to life's difficulties that have become habitual. Neuroscience makes methods to become more aware much more accessible to our western ways of thinking."

"Change happens all the time, big and small. Sometimes it's unexpected , and sometimes you make it happen. It can be challenging, exciting, and worth living for; at the same time, it can be scary and upsetting. Losing everyday predictability can lead to uncomfortable feelings. And yet, we're always growing and moving from one set of challenges to another; from child to adult to parent; from family life to an empty nest or being alone; from one job to another, or from active career to retirement; from being single to being committed to another, or from commitment to independence."

My effort is to respond in a direct, supportive, and interactive manner always from an empathetic perspective. My training took me deep into the human condition, and I've worked with most of the difficult problems prevalent in our contemporary experience. While working with couples the relationship is the goal for a couple. But when working with an individual I focus on the persons sense of self."

"Each of us has a story. Stories shape our behaviors, thoughts and emotions, and influence how we form relationships, feel about life and ourselves. Sometimes, we hide parts of our stories to feel safe and lessen hurt. Over time, these missing parts can take root and cause suffering, leaving us drained, anxious, angry, depressed or just empty. I believe therapy is an opportunity to discover and make use of the healing power of our stories. Unearthing and reclaiming lost parts dissolves them of their power over us, alleviates our suffering and allows us to live a happier, more authentic life."
