"I provide individual psychotherapy from a psychodynamic perspective. This means that therapy focuses on getting to know you in a deep way--your history, your needs, your strengths and weaknesses, and how you'd like to lead your life. Really, we're both getting to know you, since this type of therapy serves to help you get to know yourself in a new way, and to help you use new insights to better address problems in your life. This isn't the old-fashioned Freudian silent treatment! It's relatable, evidence-based, trauma-focused, and produces long-lasting change."

"I am a clinical psychologist with 25 years experience working with clients with a range of mental health concerns including trauma, anxiety, depression, identity issues, grief and loss, and relationship difficulties. I have a small, one-day practice and see mostly adults at this time. I believe that, since most of our wounds happen in relationships, most healing happens in the context of a safe collaborative therapeutic relationship. Techniques alone don't tend to work without a strong working relationship."

"<< THE PRACTICE IS FULL AND NOT ABLE TO ACCEPT NEW CLIENTS AT THIS TIME. THANK YOU >> I believe that human beings are resilient and posses a great capacity for compassion which can lead to healing and deep satisfaction. Through self-observation, mind-body awareness and developing self-acceptance and compassion we can update coping styles, relationship patterns, thoughts and behaviors that have become sources of feeling "stuck" or suffering.

"I offer a compassionate environment in which to heal and transform, beginning with embracing what IS, which allows for a more relaxed, gentle, clear and effective approach to our difficulties. Much of our emotional suffering stems from a disconnection from ourselves and our relationship with life. The work I offer facilitates a deep, authentic connection with oneself through somatic, experiential and psychodynamic work, self-inquiry, mindfulness and the support of the therapeutic relationship. Essentially I see that each person I work with has the full potential for healing already on board. We work to uncover and access that, so that full aliveness is restored."

"In my work as a therapist, I strive to help people explore the stories that have brought them to the present moment. Often, these stories (personal, familial, cultural, and more) operate in our lives as unconscious scripts, shaping patterns of behavior, beliefs, and ways of relating to others and to ourselves. Sometimes these patterns can create pain, fear, or a feeling of being stuck, and often this is when a person might seek therapy. My intention is to meet each person and their complex stories with warmth, respect, and a deep curiosity about what shows up emotionally and somatically."
