Respect for individuals inner self-knowing and my desire to be with whatever problems or pain being faced, is what moves my clients forward. Not being alone in one's experience's is key to healing. If we are a good match, our connection invites my clients to appreciate that their anxiety, depression and relationship issues are merely the body and minds way of attempting to restore health. Nurturing the healthy parts creates greater acceptance and self trust for all aspects of oneself. The resultant comfort allows one to approach, what may have felt like ominous misguided symptoms, with compassion.

I approach my work through an attachment-based orientation, emphasizing attunement to each client's needs and an appreciation of his or her unique strengths and challenges. My clinical background and areas of interest include working with children and adults experiencing trauma, PTSD, grief, depression and anxiety and challenges associated with life transitions. I utilize mindfulness and cognitive-behavioral interventions to improve coping, enhance positive self-talk and promote awareness of self-defeating patterns of thinking and behavior. Other therapeutic techniques I employ are psychodynamic therapy, play therapy, expressive arts, body-centered psychotherapy and trauma-focused treatment models.

I make authentic contact with people help them cultivate a taste for their own Truths while making space to grieve the loss of old ways or relating to people and the world around them.

Are you feeling caught between contradictory feelings of hope and despair? Finding a space where we can feel deeply understood is important to developing a secure sense of self. Psychotherapy offers a reflective space to explore the wordless thoughts, the nameless pain or the inner conflicts that may inhibit us. Through therapy a greater sense of integrity and meaning in life is possible. When we respond with genuine understanding and acceptance, hope may be restored and joy found. I listen to clients with openness and intuition. I encourage those I work with to begin to trust their own inner resources and find their own resilience.

Many of us feel alone with our suffering and haven't been taught how to address it. I find that a compassionate focus on the parts of us that suffer brings meaningful change. At some point we eventually discover we've developed behaviors that were once adaptive or self-protective but no longer serve us, or that we are in relationships that bring emotional strain. I use a Jungian and relational technique, with the attempt to stay focused on emotions in the present while uncovering the depths of the unconscious and buried past traumas.

I have seen that much of the pain in my clients stems from the emotional or physical stress that is too much for the nervous system. Every person’s experience of events can be different; therefore, the same event/emotion/stress has unique impacts on the person. I approach my work with clients in a very individual way, listening to who they are by clearly understanding both their intellectual and their emotional aspects, and have a strong steady belief in the client's own inner wisdom.

In our culture there is little space devoted to exploring illness, death and dying, and grief. We often turn away from the impending reality of death because it can be frightening to think about our own mortality. This serves us well until we experience a medical diagnosis or trauma that changes the way we live in the world. My role as a therapist is to join with you on this journey of exploration, facing complicated emotions that arise, like feeling alone, uncertain, angry, or sad.
