Healing occurs when we get below the surface of the issue and connect back to our truth and authenticity. I am particularly good at helping you get to the root of your problems and dig deep. I help you identify the connection between your past experiences and how they have influenced who you are today and the actions you take in your life. Are you feeling lost or disconnected? Fearful of putting yourself out there, or questioning your path? Maybe you are navigating pivotal life and relationship changes and struggling with the grief and uncertainty of it all.

Thank you for taking a moment to read about me and my work. My approach uses insight and depth psychotherapy combined with Mindfulness within a framework of awareness of the body. When our living process becomes stuck, therapy can move it forward. If you feel stuck in repetitive behaviors, painful feelings, and recurring anxious thoughts, I want to help you to identify how you are bogged down, so you can feel better. I can help to re-focus a sense of purpose...a way to step into your life more completely. This may include taking action if feeling adrift, or bringing clarity to a relationship.

I have had many years of gratifying experience in deeply engaging with the people I work with, and training and supervising doctoral students and therapists (many on this site have been my students!). Discovering what has been causing personal distress, worry, loneliness, or disappointment is what transforms life. These underlying stresses can cause problems with relationship, career, mood, or just general feelings of dissatisfaction. The personal growth that blooms in the therapy opens doors inside and out, and creates the rich opportunities and experiences we all want in life.

Scanning through this website trying to discern which therapist will be a good fit from a photograph and a blurb is tricky and also a sign of the times. Ideally less time is spent searching the web for answers and more can be spent with a person whose sole intention is to understand the complexities of your point of view, your experiences and facilitate you getting to where you want to go, while walking right along side you. Depression, anxiety, trauma, distorted relationship with food, difficulty being productive; these are all areas I feel confident I can help you with.

Life is full of change, sometimes self imposed and sometimes out of our control. During times of reflection and transition we find ourselves struggling with how to navigate the changing perception of our identity and confused about who to consult and trust. My interests are in working with you to find the insight you seek using an eclectic approach. I enjoy working with individuals to find a more authentic path of growth and personal expression. I also enjoy conducting process groups for the invaluable feedback group members provide each other.

It’s such an intense and overwhelming time. We are all grieving. Before the coronavirus maybe you had some anxiety or a history of trauma but overall you were functioning and feeling OK without ongoing therapy. Or despite all you do to take care of yourself, you were experiencing quite a bit of anxiety and stress, struggling with feelings of shame, anger or self-hatred for a very long time. Now with the pandemic your nervous system is on overload and everything feels overwhelming, exhausting, scary. The existential pain you’ve struggled with is back and real and being felt by you and people all over the world.
