Relationships can be hard. Partners struggle with communication, conflicting parenting styles, sexual expressions... Life's challenges, hurtful fights, history of trauma or infidelity make it difficult to sustain trust and closeness. How can you create desired connections, and not lose yourself in the process? How can you be true both to self and to your partnership? I invite you to explore these questions together with empathy and curiosity, letting go of habitual judgments, self-deprecation, and shame. I work with individuals, couples, and families. Both traditional and alternative lifestyles are welcome, and no issue is a taboo.

Although a generalist, I have a few specializations: supporting late adolescents/young adults stepping toward the next phase of life; healing trauma (s); supporting parents of children of all ages, including adult children; helping couples and partners to understand their dynamics, heal rifts and smooth the way toward relationship fulfillment.
Older adolescents, adults & couples are all welcome to my practice. In collaboration with you, I will help guide and support you in attaining your therapy goals by understanding the patterns inhibiting your success, happiness and fulfillment. Together we will chart a therapeutic course specific to who you are and what your goals are. I invite feedback and make corrections as needed along the way. My framework is psychodynamic to which I bring training in other theories/techniques, including: Internal Family Systems (IFS), mindfulness, CBT, attachment theory, emotionally focused therapy (EFT), EMDR and trauma focused.

I specialize in couples counseling and treating individual anxiety, including panic, phobias, constant worrying, post traumatic stress ( PTSD ), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), and insomnia.
Deciding to make that first call or email inquiring about counseling, can be a difficult step. My goal is to make this process as easy as I can for you and to be as supportive as possible throughout the process. That includes listening intently in order to understand how you got to where you are today and what you would like to change. Then, with the many tools in my toolbox, I will help you make those changes. If you are dealing with anxiety, trauma or relationship issues, contact me. I will answer any questions you may have. Please note: I am only doing teletherapy at this time and for the foreseeable future.

For over 24 years, I've collaborated with people to resolve their psychological trauma , phobias, anxiety & stress as well as maximize responses to their medical diagnoses, treatments & conditions. This clinical focus stems from both a personal medical challenge since age 12 and research on treating women with breast cancer and posttraumatic stress disorder ( PTSD ). Yet Kaiser research (1998) finding 70% of primary care visits are driven by mental, emotional and relational issues highlights how mind and body are interwoven for each of us. This interplay provides leverage for preventive medicine, for responding to illness and for maximizing peak performance.

I use art media, the creative process, and resulting artwork to help individuals, couples and families process trauma , reduce anxiety and depression, manage addictions, develop self-awareness, address unresolved emotional conflicts, improve social skills, and build self-esteem.
Whether you've been in therapy before, or this will be your first time; it is important to feel safe and comfortable enough to talk about things that are causing you distress. Are you experiencing life changes, decisions, challenges, trauma , illness, or disabilities? Are you looking for a way to cope with anxiety or depression?  Do you have nightmares or trouble sleeping?  Maybe you have experienced the loss of someone close to you, or a job, or a beloved pet.  Or you are just plain stressed out.  All the time. Talk can help, but so can non-verbal expressive therapies, in a non-threatening, non-judgmental environment.

Have you recently received a medical diagnosis that has thrown you "off your path?" Do you have an upcoming surgical procedure that has you frightened, and you want to be as prepared as possible? Are you scheduling an elective procedure that will make your life better, but that has inherent risks? Or perhaps you need help in healing from a disturbing medical procedure? One of my specialties as a psychotherapist is to help you manage and heal from such events. I have spent 30 years helping people diagnosed with breast cancer, other forms of cancer, and medical crises as well as life transitions, depression, anxiety, PTSD , and grief.

My specialties include substance abuse (dual diagnosis), trauma / PTSD , codependency, dysfunctional family dynamics, anxiety, and depression.
Before I was a therapist I was a client struggling with addiction, PTSD , and other issues as well. My journey of healing led me to becoming a therapist to help others heal as well. My clients find me to be compassionate, understanding, non-judgmental and informative. I tend to work intuitively, while using my training and experience as a guide. I am focused on helping my clients navigate their own healing journey as quickly and as painlessly as possible.

Humans have an amazing capacity to overcome tremendous adversity, yet sometimes a trauma or ongoing challenge is so severe that people have difficulty moving past it.
Sometimes life brings challenges that require us to learn and grow in unforeseen ways. These challenges can take the form of an illness in ourselves or a loved one, death, the loss of dreams held dearly, and trials that are part of living and maturing. I work collaboratively with individuals, families, and couples to help them overcome the stressful events they face.

Trauma and its related challenges can cause anxiety and sadness. You might wonder, will this ever get better? How long can I tolerate this bravery? I welcome supporting you.

Let’s collaboratively explore this knotted chain, which is really a portal into what blocks self confidence and connection. We'll find new solutions, reduce or resolve triggers that effect your everyday life in a way that is paced.

Since 1998, I've used EMDR to treat performance anxiety, self-esteem, relationship issues, eating disorders, and trauma due to divorce, surgeries, accidents, job loss, grief, and abuse.
For years, I have served as a supportive psychologist, teacher, and artist. I specialize in trauma and developed a Recovery Model to heal emotional, physical, and sexual abuse. The Model also addresses healthier adult sexuality and intimacy. In 1998, the APA gave me an honorary award for my research. My art work is featured in: Transformation of the Psyche: by Drs. Joseph Henderson and Dyane Sherwood. I provide in-depth adult psychotherapy using creative, cognitive, and transpersonal methods. I encourage patient healing through visualization, body/mind/spiritual connection, transpersonal psychology, and dream work.

Many of my clients feel stuck in old patterns of behaviors and communication styles that no longer serve them. As a result, they often feel misunderstood and disconnected from one another. With my years of training and compassionate attunement, I have helped them move out of old negative cycles, gain a deeper trust and connection with one another and have peace and harmony in their relationship.
