Since Adoption is my primary focus, I work with all people in the adoption triad, meaning original parents, adoptive parents, and adopted children, teens and adults.
I work with people who want to improve themselves, their relationships and their self image. These are people seeking a sounding board, a safe confidential place to talk, and extensive knowledge and experience dealing with their issues. My work focuses on where the client is now, and where they want to go, with no pre-conceived notions. We look at past experiences together and how they impact the present. For parents, I offer coaching and suggestions for managing challenging behaviors, and understanding the impact of early childhood trauma of behavior. With younger children, I encourage learning about expression of feelings.

I commend you for engaging in the timely, sometimes daunting, and perhaps exciting process of seeking out therapy, for yourself or for a loved one. A trusting therapeutic relationship is essential.

I currently work full-time at a public high school as an adjustment counselor. I previously worked as a clinical social worker at a domestic adoption agency and a partial hospitalization/intensive outpatient program.

I specialize in the treatment of maternal depression (both prenatal and postpartum), with a specific focus on reducing depressive symptoms, improving relationships, and creating lasting change. Many women come to therapy feeling stuck or trapped in the confines of their depression, and often hopeless about freeing themselves from their feelings of sadness and despair. I believe that everyone, despite current challenges, has the capacity to improve their lives and enjoy a rich and meaningful life. Therapy provides the help and support to formulate a way out of whatever is holding you back from having the life you want.

I will provide you with a safe space for self-exploration, and a fundamental model for self-reflection to utilize in your everyday life. During treatment, we will work together to recognize how your current life situation is being directly affected by past events and relational (or interpersonal) patterns. We will also come to understand how psychological influences, which remain outside of your awareness, negatively impact your ability to accomplish your goals, feel fulfilled by your relationships, and sustain a sense of emotional well-being.

I believe we all have a soul that is radiant and beautiful. Our souls are currently embodied in human form for two reasons: to manifest our soul mission and to experience the fullness of life. If you are not on track with your soul mission or are not getting the desired results in some area of your life, then there must be some type of interference pattern causing a misalignment between the conscious, unconscious, body and/or soul levels. The methodology I developed, Healing from the Body Level Up, clears these interference patterns from all levels quickly, painlessly and permanently.

As a psychotherapist, I help clients better understand how we carry old wounds of hurt, loss and trauma into the present and how those wounds affect the way we manage our lives and relationships. Life stress--marriage/divorce, parenting, vocation, illness, loss--as well as the challenges of the lifecycle itself--young adulthood, midlife, senescence--can stir up old, unprocessed turmoil. Having been trained in psychodynamic, family systems and EMDR, I strive to attentively, compassionately and actively engage with my clients so that they might free themselves of old wounds and current impasses to live more loving and whole lives.

One of the great joys of my work is the opportunity to help people create lives with greater meaning and purpose. Many of my clients are dealing with the "normal challenges of living." I work collaboratively with them, and while their current circumstances may be quite difficult, they transform their suffering by developing greater resilience. Through our work, my clients learn to make problems more manageable, gain greater clarity regarding their feelings and needs, and improve their communication skills. They learn to make choices that move their lives in better directions.

Therapy is the hard work of becoming awake to, and accepting of, what is real in ourselves and in life. Only when awake and living within the bounds of reality can we be loved, loving, healthy and happy. Addiction, depression, anxiety are among the experiences that can interfere with our experience of a healthy, joyful life. I feel priveledged to assist and accompany brave individuals on this journey of learning to change what we can, and stop fighting what we cannot. My therapy work combines traditional psychodynamic and cognitive approaches with Buddhist psychology and mindfulness practices.

Welcome! I believe that the most successful therapy occurs when a strong clinical rapport is developed between therapist and client(s). To that end, I will work with you (or your child) to create a warm, therapeutic environment where we can collaboratively determine your needs and goals, and then work together toward achieving those goals. My approach to therapy is eclectic, which means I pull from a number of different theoretical orientations. This allows me the flexibility to tailor the treatment according to your unique needs.

Most of us do the best we can with the resources we have. Sometimes we think no one understands our worries & fears. If open to it, we want to work with a therapist when our usual ways of relating aren't helping & we feel stuck, anxious, angry or depressed. Therapy often helps provide insight into our strengths & internal resources we already have to help navigate challenging times. In sessions, I focus on working with clients to unlock this strength to steer their lives in the direction they want. I bring curiosity, warmth, respect, & empathy to my sessions.
