Announcement icon In support of current social isolation requirements of COVID-19, I am offering Telehealth via phone and video counseling.
Survivors of trauma, abuse, victimization, and people in recovery from cancer are people I am most adept at treating. I offer individual therapy and specialize in trauma recovery, empowering my clients to more satisfying and healthier lives.
Lifespan Integration is my area of deepest specialty. LI is a gentle, body-based therapeutic method that offers brief exposure to traumatic memories, followed by therapeutic techniques that allow the brain to reprocess and store the memories differently. This happens without extensive talking about the trauma or related feelings, allowing for swift recovery.
Lifespan Integration, Person Centered therapy, Mindfulness, and Emotionally Focused Therapy combine in my practice to provide complete therapeutic care. With 20+ years in the corporate world, having raised twins and beaten leukemia, I have broad life experience along with therapeutic training that combine to provide a seasoned, centered perspective.

Staying Sane During a Time of Social Isolation

In the era of the current COVID 19 pandemic, fear is high, anxiety is through the roof, hoarding resources is commonplace, and social distancing is our strongest, safest health standard. How do we stay in community, work, raise children, relate to one another, and retain our mental health during this challenging time? One way we can address this challenge is to find a connection to one another around shared issues and researched-based solutions, supported by technology, and facilitated by a trained and licensed counselor.
