I specialize in working with adults who have experienced trauma of various kinds (illness, accidents, assault, loss) in childhood or adulthood. I have worked for many years with women and men who have experienced childhood sexual, physical or emotional abuse, or adult sexual assault. Recurring thoughts and images about the trauma, or less conscious feelings such as fear and worthlessness, or difficulties letting anyone get close, can persist, even if it happened long ago. My focus in therapy is to help you work through these experiences so they no longer prevent you from living more fully in your present life.

Since becoming licensed in 1977, I have maintained a general, mostly adult practice. I now bring a breadth and depth of experience to the table. I have worked with people with highly complex problems for extended periods as well as with clients appropriate for brief therapy. I assume that everyone can make positive changes once they access inner resources they may not even realize are there.

Sometimes it feels like we don't have control of our own stories-- our love stories, or maybe even the stories of our entire lives. Our problems take over to the point where they're running the show, not us! How can we claim our rightful place as the authors and editors of our own narratives? Well, in life we are a part of many different systems-- maybe a couple, family, or certainly society. Humans team up naturally, as it helps us accomplish more than we could alone. But problems can arise that change the way we interact with the other parts. In other words, we start feeling unhappy, or acting in unhealthy ways.
