"Anxiety, sadness, anger, regret are natural and human, but when one is stuck thinking and feeling these ways, something is wrong. If you are stuck, repeating the same kinds of experiences, or if there has been an unmanageable disruption in your life, I have been in practice helping people in similar situations for more than 20 years. Through talking and thinking together to deeply understand your experience, we discover and create new ways for you to think and act in the world. Your sense of self and of life expand, opening up space in which to move, breathe and grow."

"Emotions, thoughts, and behaviors are all natural human experiences. Sometimes they can become destructive, causing problems for us and those around us and signaling that something is off balance in our lives. I work with clients (child, adolescent, adult) within a respectful therapeutic relationship to understand what these problems mean and jointly develop a treatment plan. Depending on your individual goals and needs, treatment can include gaining insight, building skills, or helping you heal from past trauma. I also provide psychological testing services for a variety of purposes (e.g., diagnostic clarification, learning disabilities, giftedness, developmental disabilities)."

"Are you living a life of "quiet desperation"? Get to the bottom of your problems by connecting with yourself. Psychotherapy can help identify and overcome blocks that prevent you from being your real self. Are you repeating patterns from childhood despite your best efforts not to? Those patterns were likely formed early in childhood as a survival mechanism and now that you no longer need those patterns, they feel like a prison. Psychotherapy provides the key that opens the door. If you are afraid that you cannot do this, please do not sell yourself short and give yourself a chance."

Together, we will discuss those behaviors and experiences that cause you pain; developing coping alternatives, easing your stress and anxiety. My life experience, education and work history leads me to have unique perspective to help you. My early career working in Montessori Education taught me the value of self-direction and respect for people of all ages. As a program coordinator in a battered women's shelter I learned about the effects of violence, loss, chemical dependency and powerlessness."

"Whether or not they say it, most of the people that I see want to live a life that is worth living. They want to feel empowered-- to be active participants in their lives. You may feel a void, emptiness, and that something is missing. Often people feel stuck in their lives because they have lost connection with a vital part of themselves and with their hopes and desires. This vitality is the source of our imagination and creativity. This internal source and "knowing" of what we need and want becomes disconnected, covered over by past disappointments, losses and fears."

"All emotional wounding happens in a larger context. We are all embedded in relationships, families, cultural identities community and institutional values. Therefore our pain, trauma and grief are all firmly connected in a matrix. I mainly work with those of us who are outside the margins of dominant culture and are especially vulnerable. I work from a non pathologizing stance. I believe healing occurs on many levels, in many ways. Psychotherapy is one path to emotional wellness. Do you desire a deeper relationship with yourself and others, and are willing to engage in personal inquiry in an environment of connection? "
