I offer a soft place to land in what can be a confusing world. I'll invite you to slow down, tune in, and explore your quieter and wiser self. It is human to struggle because, let's face it--life is tough. Feeling overwhelmed, trapped, fearful, angry, and sad is par for the course and the result of living in a fast-paced, stressful environment. This reality coupled with mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, loss, trauma, and/or addiction can sap our resources. We can end up loosing sight of what is important to us and feel a dampening of our spirit.

Therapy is a deeply personal, multifaceted journey inward in an already complex world. To those who choose to venture down this road, the process can leave one feeling emotional and vulnerable, but it will also be healing, enlightening and enriching. Taking steps down this path is a virtuous act and I am here to honor you and your process. Together we will gently explore what may be causing you pain. Healing is at the heart of my practice - what you will experience with me is empathy, non-judgmental compassion, and authenticity. My therapeutic style is warm, energetic and engaged.

I am a clinical psychologist with several years of experience working with adults, adolescents, and couples. I provide in-depth therapy where we both can begin to explore the underlying causes of your emotional symptoms. I view my role as a psychologist as one who guides you through the healing process.

We all struggle when communicating with our partners from time to time. During lockdown, it may be happening "way too much"! During the shelter-in-place orders, feelings of frustration, fear, sadness, grief, and anger might be starting to build. You might be fighting more, or retreating to your corners and there is an icy chill in the house. Maybe its resentment? If any of these emotions seem familiar, it may be time to reach out for support. I offer in-person and video sessions.

Active Imagination and non-directive guided imagery can help you access inner wisdom and gain insight. While the thinking, rational mind is essential for everyday concerns and problem-solving, its usefulness is limited regarding questions of meaning, value, and depth. Active Imagination constructively channels the psyche's innate creative power. When we tap into the wellspring of the visionary imagination, we feel an enlivened sense of meaning, purpose, and connection.

It seems like nothing you say gets through to them anymore. When the one you care most about doesn't seem to listen, it's frightening and isolating. Sometimes just talking to an objective person helps you find a way to live a better life, resolve problems, and make better decisions. Suffering originates from not knowing what to do with life’s challenges. Every person needs guidance to leave behind the confusion of the current situation to breakthrough to a future clarity. It's not too late to learn the skills that can get you off to a fresh start. It's time to break those unproductive patterns and replace them with healthier ones.

I practice a unique combination of counseling and hypnotherapy. My therapy is based on the notion that every person has a potential to live a fulfilling life. I practice an integrated way of resolving problems by addressing them on 3 levels: emotional (resolving old fears, traumas; breaking old patterns); logical (learning new behaviors, emotional skills); and personal (defining the goals, building confidence). My therapy is very practical. The clients have an active role in their healing process. During the sessions I introduce new tools and strategies. In between the sessions clients apply and practice them.
