Early experiences result in our developing defensive structures that are meant to protect our vulnerability, but also create restrictions in our capacity to feel or perceive what is happening in the moment. This patterning shapes our perception of others, and also of ourselves. Although traditional insight-oriented talk therapy allows for an understanding which can harmonize our awareness with our everyday life, we embody early experience in ways that limit the power of insight to undo, and restrict our emotional intelligence. My orientation to psychotherapy is to work through emotional and experiential patterning, without bypassing the power of understanding.

I have worked in the field of psychology for over twenty years. In my psychotherapy work, I provide a safe and respectful setting where you can discuss current challenges, and understand how particular feelings and patterns contribute to these challenges. Often these challenges develop out of prior dysfunctional relationships, and it is in the psychotherapy relationship that new and more satisfying goals and behaviors can be discussed and developed. In our initial appointments I actively listen and engage with patients to develop a psychological framework to understand their challenges, and then set concise goals to address in the therapy.

I work with people who want to reach their full potential at work, in relationships, and/or creative pursuits but find themselves instead drained by worry, paralyzed by fear or perfectionism, and often unable to even feel safe in their own bodies. Though we sometimes get overwhelmed by life's struggles, I deeply believe in each person’s innate wisdom and ability to heal and grow. During individual sessions I will help you access your inner healing capacities. And together we will work to identify and change the thought and behavior patterns, and false beliefs at the root of these, that are keeping you stuck and suffering.
