E.M. Forster, the novelist’s phrase, “Only Connect” is a good place to begin. As psychotherapist, writer, human, I am committed to listening with compassion and to helping clients find within the courage to heal, to grow and to become more fully their true selves. I have practiced in a variety of settings and with all ages since 1994. A graduate of the National Institute for the Psychotherapies (2001) I specialize in Grief and Trauma work, incorporating Mindfulness teachings and practices into my approach. I am also a certified practitioner of the trauma-healing modality, EMDR (2002).
I am experienced in a range of clinical methods, including cognitive, somatic, relational, interpersonal, narrative and spiritual approaches. I offer friendly, non-judgmental guidance to those who wish to explore if a 12-step program might be helpful in overcoming compulsive behaviors, limiting fear-based beliefs, and old, outgrown habits.
I believe that each of us has our own unique story, that as humans, we suffer and, as humans, we have great capacity for connection, resilience and joy. Thus, I value getting to know each person who seeks out my services and exploring together to create a unique and personalized process for healing, and discovery.
