"The interface between contemporary psychology and the wisdom of contemplative practice spirituality is central to my work with individuals and couples and to my general approach to therapy. With the use of MINDFULNESS based therapy and a non-judgmental and non-pathological approach I create a healing and supportive environment were growth and transformation can take place through our in depth process of exploration.

"All issues stemming from severe trauma or abuse like anxiety, depression and various forms of confusion in the mind, pain in the heart disconnect us from life, from ourselves.

"My job is to interrupt you when you're stuck and get out of the way when you're in touch with your truth- and to remind you be kind to yourself. I work with people who are committed to growth. We are meant to grow throughout our entire lives. When that process is blocked or interrupted, we suffer. And yet, the way in which we suffer can be an opportunity to flourish in ways we hadn't imagined. I am particularly interested in helping people disarm the inner critic that can punish and paralyze us."

"I work with people who face challenges that often arise but are not exclusive to the second half of life such as: the trauma of illness & death, caring for aging parents, loss of satisfaction or sense of meaning in relationships and work, loss of a job, and/or loneliness. I also work with folks suffering from love addiction or love avoidance. These challenges can often be baffling and carry symptoms such as depression, fear and anxiety. The rational mind may understand what is going on but somehow the emotional and physical body can't always take solace in rational solutions."

"I am a relationship therapist. I help couples and families in relationship distress, and individuals struggling with addiction, anxiety, depression, professional stress, grief, chronic illness, aging, and death. So much of our suffering arises when our relationships aren't working, whether as couples or in our families or in the work place. When we feel disconnected and alone, we can become vulnerable to anxiety, depression and addiction. What we are searching for is a safe place to explore what's not working in our relationships and to find support in creating solutions."

"I believe that coming to therapy is about making a home in ourselves: a home where we feel at ease, where all the different parts of us are okay and we don't feel that something is wrong with who we are. When life gets hard we can feel isolated and cutoff - from the people around us, and also from ourselves. When we most need to feel compassion towards ourselves it can be hardest to find. My work is to help you find that compassion for yourself and to support you in strengthening your capacity to meet whatever life brings with courage and confidence."

Or we may notice chronic struggles with trusting others and ourselves, and feeling stressed and unsatisfied in our relationships. The experience of trauma can significantly impact how we change or grow in each present moment, how we connect and separate from others, and how we experiment, take risks, and resource our creativity.

"Tired of feeling down, anxious, or simply not your best? Ready to do more than just talk about it? If so, body oriented therapy may be for you. With body oriented therapy, we will explore not only your thoughts and emotions, but also the physical sensations, postures, and gestures that come with them. This is important because tuning into your body can help you understand your feelings, thoughts, and life experiences more deeply. This understanding can support you in being the person you want to be and creating the life you want to have. The first step to change is becoming aware of how you are feeling, thinking, and being now. "
