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.

Sometimes we all hit a wall, and the tools that we have been using to manage life's challenges are just not cutting it anymore. Many of the clients that I work with are feeling overwhelmed and out-of-control. They find that worry, self-doubt, and even physical pain have become uninvited, yet constant companions. They are hurting from sleepless nights, second guessing themselves, forgotten pastimes, and lost relationships. But they want more, and they begin to engage in counseling because they are ready to care for themselves in new ways.

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.

This process involves setting achievable short-term goals while keeping long-term goals in sight.

Whether you are struggling with difficult emotions or you would like to have a more vital life, therapy can help guide your personal journey. There are moments when we all struggle, get lost, and stray off the path towards our goals. We get stuck in unhelpful patterns that are hard to break free from. Insight into these patterns can lead to making different choices that are empowering and life-affirming. I create a warm and inviting space for exploration and personal growth. While I provide therapy for adolescents and adults, I also provide psychological evaluations to clients across the lifespan.

I combine 20+ years of experience doing insight driven depth therapy with the use of Brainspotting, an innovative therapeutic technique designed to help the brain process material on the subcortical level. Brainspotting is generally marketed as a treatment for trauma but it's also applicable in many other ways. I've used it with clients to shift ambivalence or indecision, to treat somatic symptoms or pain , parasomnias, social anxiety, eating disorders, for emotional distress that's not necessarily based in something traumatic, to enhance performance or to see if we can shift some place in their therapy where they have felt "stuck."

Therapy is a space where you can explore and process your experiences with the safety and support they need. This can help shape new ways of being and feeling.
