"My experience comes from 23 years of helping children, adults, couples and families in both Community Mental Health and Private Practice. My approach is eclectic and tailored to each individual's needs to facilitate healing and growth. Through my years of experience I have witnessed over and over again people coming into therapy with great pain, discomfort and despair but with time, (sometimes within a very short time) their symptoms diminish and a whole new person emerges. Crisis times can be extremely painful and distressful but they can also be opportunities for growth and healing through therapy."

"While I do offer talk therapy, I also blend psychotherapy, expressive arts therapy and somatic therapy. Expressive arts therapy can look like anything from me having you choose images (rather than using words) to describe your experience, to drama therapy techniques by which I facilitate you having a conversation with a "part" of yourself that continues a frustrating habit. Somatic work means your body is an integral part of our process. This can mean tracking bodily shifts and sensations together. It can also involve standing practices that reflect back what your body (you) are doing, as opposed to what you think you are doing. "

"Life guarantees all of us ups and downs- but in our highly individualistic culture, it is common to believe that one ought to be able to handle their own difficulties. In reality, stressful life events,transitions and challenges can become much more manageable with consistent support. Through active listening and reflection,I assist clients in accessing their own intuition about what makes their life feel satisfying. Therapy involves a growing self awareness that often uncovers outdated beliefs and patterns. I truly enjoy guiding clients through this discovery process.This often involves a look at how culture and upbringing influence behavior."

"Psychotherapy is one instrument of change for feeling better. For example, earlier psychic injuries may alert us when faced with challenges making us anxious, depressed, endure sleep problems or feel out of balance some way. Long term recovery from addiction, grieving and loss, chronic illness or pain may call for deeper work. Many stress points show up in relationships, at work or in how we feel. Life transitions (starting or ending a career, big changes in relationships/family, starting a young family or retirement ) are important passages in our lives and therapy can be a great guide."

"I believe that healing occurs in a safe space with a trusted other. People seek out therapy for different reasons and often these reasons are hard to talk about. Maybe you are wrestling with painful memories from your past, maybe you find it difficult to have satisfying relationships, maybe you are experiencing anxiety and depression, or, perhaps, you are having difficulty coping with a loss or connecting with your child. It can be quite helpful to explore these issues and trace back their roots; processing, exploring, and being curious about feelings and beliefs that may come up along the way."
