My style of working is warm, thoughtful and direct. I am committed to helping people discover and enhance their emotional capacity in order to create more satisfying lives. Through the transformative experience of being deeply understood by another in an authentic, safe and honest relationship, people can develop increased compassion (for self and other), experience a more stable sense of self-esteem, discover new ways of relating, experience increased tolerance for difficult emotions, and transform destructive patterns into more satisfying expressions of self.

I work with people who are struggling with a wide range of concerns which may include: relationship problems, anxiety, depression, trauma/PTSD, eating disorders, low self esteem, body image and identity issues.

I draw upon a broad theoretical background that includes psychoanalytic theory, attachment theory, and cognitive-behavioral therapy, as well as 20 years of experience in the practices of yoga and art.
