Thirty-four years of experience have taught me what works in therapy. I utilize techniques from psychodynamic, cognitive, somatic and transpersonal approaches. I have skill and experience working with people who are anxious or depressed. I have worked successfully with people who have experienced childhood sexual abuse and people who have had difficulty in relationships. I will meet you with respect and compassion and work with you to develop a strategy for healing your wounds, disappointments and existential dilemmas. Together we will work to reveal the best of you-freed from debilitating family patterns, constraining belief systems and dysfunctional habits

I have specialized experience working with Intimate partner violence , addiction and trauma.
There are times when you need to talk to someone who is there only for you. Talking with a therapist provides a safe place to be vulnerable about painful thoughts and feelings. You may be feeling sad, angry, anxious or stuck. You may be unable to control negative thoughts, unhealthy behaviors, engaging in unhealthy relationships or repeating destructive patterns. You may be distressed from memories related to traumatic events. It takes courage to talk to another person about these undesirable and distressing parts of your life. When you are ready, I’d like to help you feel better about yourself, your relationships and your life.

My specialty areas are substance abuse , couples issues, eating disorders, life coaching, bariatric surgery issues, infertility/adoption, helping caregivers cope with dealing with a loved one's chronic illness.
My focus is to develop a relationship with the client. This is called the two person model which is different than the old fashion practice where the doctor is one up and the client is one down. Rather, the two person model attempts to understand the client through questions and mutual discussion. I am not a silent therapist. I give feedback and remain fully engaged with the patient. Together we build a rapport. I adhere to a humanistic approach.

Does your family have extra challenges because of adoption and pre-adoption history, attachment problems, trauma, loss, or other complications? I am here to help children, teens, and parents struggling with issues most families don't have to deal with--issues like abandonment, abuse , insecure attachment/RAD, child/teen anxiety and depression, out-of-control behavior, and post traumatic stress. Therapy can help restore hope, promote attachment, develop new skills and new understanding, and return children to a healthy developmental trajectory. What's overwhelming becomes manageable, enhancing family relationships and functioning.

Are you exploring your sexuality or gender and need support? Are you healing from sexual assault or intimate partner violence and don't know how to talk about it? Are you in the kink and/or poly community and need nonjudgmental support? I get it. It can be scary to look for a therapist when your experiences are outside "the norm." I empower my clients to become more self-aware and to better understand and process their unique experiences in a collaborative, self-affirming environment.
