The puzzle pieces can be specific such as dealing with relationship/couples issues,the impact of divorce , the loss of a loved one, a negative body image, or early childhood trauma.
I feel the theraputic experience is a rich and exciting way for someone to reach their full potential. We all have feelings at times that "something is missing". These are real feelings and will be explored through our relationship. I believe everyone is unique. I don't have a "cookie cutter" approach to treating people. We will get to know each other and deal with the issues together. I work from a psychodynamic viewpoint.I feel everything that you have gone through as a child, young adult, and adult is connected. Our job will be to put the puzzle together.

I also offer Divorce Mediation services when it is time for a marriage to end equitably and fairly.
I have extensive experience working with survivors of trauma, Addictions are often an unwelcomed side-effect of trauma, and I can work compassionately when they co-occur. I understand the unique challenges that developmental age plays re: traumatic events, death and loss. I take a gentle yet proactive approach to treating trauma. I know the difficulty of talking about these most personal and often horrifying events. I have compassion and respect for survivors of trauma. My approach to treating trauma is reflective of this. I also offer Divorce Mediation services when marriages fail due to these issues.

I began my career as a marriage family therapist and certified mediator twenty-four years ago. Over the years, my practice has grown and evolved after sitting with hundreds of people over the years. I've led hundreds of groups, workshops, and classes. I saw the challenges of relationships, raising a family, financial success, and being happy. Once I was walking my own path, the struggles that I had seen as a child became mine. Managing my time and not mimicking my workaholic family upbringing led me to creating new structures and habits that would support me and my success.

I treat a wide array of issues including anxiety, depression, trauma, behavioral issues, relational problems, family conflict, educational problems, divorce , foster care, adoption, gender identity, attachment problems, grief, and more.
I enjoy working with children and adults to help them find grounded ways of being with and moving through the struggles they face. I believe that strong relationships, with the self, the body, and with others, are central to a healthy lifestyle. Painful life experiences, transitions, trauma, anxiety, and depression are opportunities for growth, and helping people move through these challenges is incredibly rewarding. I love working with people of diverse sociocultural backgrounds and exploring how culture shapes experience. A deep understanding of development allows me to connect with people of all ages and help them move through difficult stages.

Expertise with all life transitions, chronic illness, poor sleep, diabetes management, relationships, divorce , bereavement and aging are some of the challenges I can help with.
Are you plagued by "What if..." thoughts? Feeling fear, worry, imagining the worse? Or consumed by negativity? Such internal self-talk can be debilitating, causing stress. It drives behavior, alters mood, interferes with sleep. Feeling stuck, unheard or frustrated? Unhappiness isn't permanent. Difficult situations at work, with your health or in your personal life can be navigated. Acceptance of your reality, including health and aging issues, makes a significant difference. Let me help you feel more at peace, learn skillful ways to respond to those thoughts, and let go of the stress. I'll happily get you on a wellness track!

I have worked extensively with women with cancer, and people going through divorce , retirement, death of a partner, and most of life's various provocations which cause pain to the soul, all "traumas" in their own right.
I consider it a privilege to work with you to explore aspects of your life experience which have diminished your satisfaction with life or otherwise left you feeling lost or alone. Challenges around loss, aging, illness, trauma or relationships can feel too frightening to tackle alone. As a seasoned and compassionate psychotherapist, I can help you bear and work with what may feel unbearable. Together, we will create a protected space that fosters the trust, aliveness and self-expression that are essential to growth and success in love and work, where you can ultimately reclaim your life and joie-de-vivre.
