My services are built on years of compassionate & successful treatment outcomes: decreased passive and invasive modalities to treat injury/ illness ; recovered partnerships; reconciliation of loss, limitation, and trauma; greater flexibility and freedom; decreased internal "sibling rivalry"; & greater enjoyment of what you already have and who you already are.
Without meaning and the chance to therapeutically practice new insights and behaviors, we may suffer unnecessarily during times of high stress, trauma, or in daily life. Feelings may become like overwhelming floods of dread, sorrow or numbness, thinking becomes confused, panicky, and self-critical, joy is lost. Together we can make good use of your strengths, symptoms and external challenges. Through exploring and deepening our understanding and trust in your own inner world, dignity and liveliness may be restored even under the most challenging or enduring of circumstances, illnesses or problems.

People come to therapy with unique needs, concerns, and life circumstances. Through the process of self-inquiry, I help clients gain insight and develop effective coping skills to move through a challenge with greater ease and understanding. My therapeutic style is warm, compassionate and curious about one's experience. I use an attachment based, person-centered approach that offers individuals and couples clarity around repetitive patterns that cause pain , conflict, and limit growth.

I specialize in brief (6-24 weeks) psychotherapy for individuals, couples and groups with chronic pain and other health-related challenges, especially anxiety. I have expertise in treating people with gastrological illnesses and serve on the medical advisory committee of the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America. I also have extensive experience working in hospitals with medical providers. Clients typically see progress within 6 weeks. Treatment goals generally fall into two categories: meeting work/home responsibilities and increasing self-care. This process involves setting achievable short-term goals while keeping long-term goals in sight.

I work with adults who are seeking help for depression, anxiety, relationship issues, stress management, life transitions, and issues at the intersection of physical and emotional health, such as insomnia and chronic pain .
Many of the people I work with come to therapy because they feel stuck or overwhelmed, are seeking relief from anxiety or depression, need support as they adjust to a new life circumstance, or want to develop a better understanding of themselves. During therapy, we will explore unhelpful patterns by looking at the relationship between your thoughts, behaviors and emotions and the ways in which these things are interfering or impacting your quality of life. I can offer tools and concepts that may be helpful for coping with difficult emotions, improving relationships, promoting self-acceptance, and regaining balance in your life.

Some of us experience extremely challenging, even terrible things in life, or we are not able to get over the pain or losses we have experienced in the past. I have studied and trained in the treatment of traumatic disturbances for over a decade and am passionate about helping people resolve symptoms that include: reliving or avoiding memories, negative moods and thoughts, and sometimes "dissociation" (feeling detached from oneself and others). I offer an effective psychotherapy method known as EMDR for addressing such symptoms, along with a compassionate, culturally sensitive approach to issues.

As our work together brings light to those places of pain and confusion, new ways of approaching old problems will become apparent, and presenting symptoms --such as depressive thinking, anxiety or rage-- can subside as emotional and psychological wounds that you may have felt unbearable begin to heal.
My work with you begins from my deep respect for the self-awareness and courage it takes to seek support. From our first session together, I aim to create an optimally safe and trusting relationship, a safe harbor in what may be tumultuous life seas. Gently but actively, I will help guide you through the places inside where you feel stuck, afraid, or are simply in too much pain to examine. In our sessions, I won't just sit back silently; my approach to therapy is warm, interactive, experiential and engaged.

Do you feel stuck, like you are getting in your own way? Feelings hopeless and isolated? Life presents all kinds of challenges which we often try to manage on our own and creates frustrations. This frustration creates barriers that can leave you feeling distant from others and even a stranger to yourself. What is worse is often we don’t even know why we are struggling. I am dedicated to helping you with the difficult and painful experiences by facilitating understanding of yourself and the issues that cause pain .
