Where deeper work is needed, I often use projective therapies, such as Art therapy ,or Sand tray,as well as work books that address healing from depression, sexual abuse, ADHD, and grief.
I believe the therapeutic relationship is an important piece of the process through which growth and healing can occur. Helping clients to feel safe enough to share their feelings is paramount, and to offer hope is vital. It is important for the fearful to know that courage is being afraid, but doing it anyway. This concept promotes self esteem, and helps people to move forward in their lives. I use a variety of theoretical orientations, but chose the ones that are best suited for my client needs. I give clients tools to work with that will help them change their negative thoughts to positive ones..

I’m trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, Art Therapy , Family Systems, Schema Therapy, and Positive Behavior Interventions and Support.
As a clinician who practices a strength-based approach to assessment, strategies and treatment, I love helping people to re-connect with their own happiness! My clinical expertise is in combining specialized clinical knowledge and skills in the service of resolving anxiety. My unique approach incorporates Cognitive Behavior Therapy and Mindfulness. I find that many people diagnosed with long-standing clinical depression and anxiety are often suffering from the negative impact of self-criticism, relationship discord, past trauma, or achievement fatigue, and that once these are addressed, their symptoms subside.

I am a trained art therapist and if it feels right for you, may use art to help strike up conversations about your experience.
Who would have ever imagined having to cope with a pandemic? Yet we do and we are. At times old coping skills fall short and feel lost. You might hide your pain, mask with alcohol or a drug, put a smile on and fake it as best as possible. No need to go through that alone. Addiction as well as feeling low or anxious is a confusing world filled with self doubt, grief, loss, shame & guilt; all the emotions we try to hide from. But during these times, the pain could be even greater. You will be treated with the utmost respect & compassion as we work towards a healing path.

With children, I also use play therapy and art as tools to enter the child's world.
In many ways good psychotherapy is like a successful remodel, frequently resulting in a stronger and more spacious sense of one's self, lovely new rooms, remarkable views and better access to the world outside (and in). The journey of self-discovery takes courage, but increasing one's awareness of old limitations and obstacles, and developing the ability to gently and carefully dismantle and rebuild where necessary is incredibly rewarding -- often beyond what we can imagine. I believe that it's a collaborative journey on which we embark, moving together towards creating a more fulfilling and rewarding life for you.

The transpersonal perspective I have developed over the past 40 years, combining mindfulness practices, art therapy , journal dialogue, lucid dreaming, and archetypal studies is ideally designed to support individuals already following their own deep sense of calling professionally, as a parent, seeker, or community activist/global agent of planetary healing.
Are you at an important crossroads, more than ready for a change but wanting greater clarity before making life altering decisions? Do you have recurrent, disturbing, or just intriguingly vivid dreams and wonder what they might be attempting to convey? Are you experiencing persistent physical symptoms that you know, or suspect, might have their origins in repressed emotions, chronic stress, unresolved grief or trauma? Are you longing to deepen an intimate partnership and curious about addressing the 5 natural stages of development through which, once understood and honored, our relationships can evolve and thrive?

Life is filled with transitions, changes, growth, and honestly sometimes, even regressions. But that is okay. And even better, you do NOT have to go it alone. Let me walk through the darkness with you and we can find the way out together. Let me help you discover your strengths. Let me guide you getting your life back on track. Therapy does not have to be scary. Therapy does not have to be you lying on a couch and me taking notes at you. Therapy also does not have to be all talk for an hour. We can draw, we can take a walk, we can cry, we can laugh, we can even meet virtually! Therapy with me will be about you and your needs.

Many times in life we find ourselves struggling with change. We feel burdened by changes that are out of our control, or discouraged by unsuccessful attempts at creating change. Ideas of who we should be and all of the ways we fall short can so easily conceal our path to contentment and self-love.

Finding a therapist is hard! It doesn't help that there are so many to choose from. I think the most important part is actually liking the person you are talking to. Take a look at my page (and website), and if you think we may be a good fit, I encourage you to call me for a free 15 minute consultation. If we end up working together, I will do my best to find which methods align with you so that I can help you get to the place you want to be.
