My approach employs family systems and relational psychodynamic theories, to promote inner or system balance.
I have worked more than 30 years w individuals & families with serious psychological and relational problems including the mood, behavior and substance problems that tear families apart. I help individuals and families navigate the perilous course of finding solutions while we work to improve serenity and sanity for all. Individual work is relational w/psychodynamic and a Real World approach. I have developed the “Stress-Induced Impaired Coping" model for family system distress and recovery.

Personal + professional experience with addiction combined with training in evidence-based treatment protocols, including, CBT, EMDR, + Family Systems , informs my passion to guide individuals and families beyond the pain of substance use disorder, relationship conflict, and/or mood disturbances, to live more expansive and satisfying lives.
Are you feeling lonely, sad, angry, or unhappy in your relationships? Do you worry about your or someone else's alcohol or drug use? Substance Use Disorder often impacts individuals and families in painful + predictable ways that trap people in destructive cycles of interaction that lead to trauma and persistent feelings of anxiety, loneliness, anger, helplessness, and despair. You are not alone if your efforts to manage and move beyond the chaos and frustration of addiction have fallen short of your expectations. Don't lose hope! People do get better, and relationships can be repaired!

My practice is integrative and informed by extensive post graduate training in: Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy(attachment work), Internal Family Systems (parts work), Dynamic Emotion Focused Therapy(anxiety regulation, self building, working with defenses), Psychobiological Approach to Couple Therapy(creating security and aliveness with partner), is more experiential than cognitive.
I see adult individuals who would like to: feel empowered, self-compassionate and self-expressive, to know their heart's desires, and to overcome self-defeating thoughts, behaviors and anxiety. I see straight and queer couples who want to: learn new ways of relating to co-create secure and fulfilling attachment, to learn how to make effective repairs with each other, and to learn how to manage oneself and one's partner in the best way.

I am a Certified EMDR Therapist and Certified Clinical Trauma Professional using EMDR, IFS , Ego State focus to treat clients who have ongoing, unresolved symptoms stemming from adverse childhood experiences, developmental trauma or neglect, or from a more recent single traumatic event causing disturbance.
Have you had a difficult or traumatic life experience that you can't recover from on your own? Did you grow up in a chaotic home where it felt hard to be seen or to get your needs met? You may have felt a persistent anxiety and lack of safety due to issues beyond your control. If you struggle in your current relationships and seem to experience too many painful feelings like fear, anger, sadness, shame, or guilt you might have unresolved trauma, even if it doesn't seem to match your idea of what trauma is. I can help you heal from the past and let go of your negative feelings/beliefs so that you can live more fully in the present.

I practice from a psychodynamic framework informed by object relations, CBT, self psychology, and family systems .
I have many years of experience and training and enjoy working with adults, couples and teens. I find that most clients come to me when their old ways of coping are no longer working (or they are unhealthy) and the stress is too much! Also, when they can't avoid the strong feelings bubbling to the surface. Why do it alone. I hold the hope for my clients when they aren't able.

My approach is largely based on the Internal Family Systems model for childhood/developmental traumas.
Need help with ongoing symptoms following one or more traumatic events? Do you have a history of childhood trauma that is causing difficulties in your work or relationships? These events can have long-term effects on brain function and perceptions of self and others. If you are not responding to talk therapy or medications, this approach may be the key to bringing you relief. I offer treatment to adults with Post Traumatic Stress (PTSD), anxiety, panic and related conditions. I use a gentle mindfulness-based approach that addresses the body sensations, images, thoughts, emotions and beliefs that form in the wake of a trauma.

Seeking support is an act of courage and strength. Life can be inherently stressful and sometimes can feel overwhelming. We will work together first to address your current symptoms and alleviate your suffering. As you begin to feel better, we can then shift into working with longer term patterns and challenges. As you embark on this journey, I offer a mindful, compassionate and collaborative container for our process together.

To others, it seems like you have it all. But underneath lives a different story. Despite your outward success, you feel haunted sometimes by feelings of failure, conflict, self-doubt. At certain moments, a gnawing sense overcomes you, telling you: Something is not right. You've made changes but somehow still end up in the same unsatisfying patterns, repeating the same unhelpful behaviors -- feeling more and more alone. You want to understand your patterns and your past so you can create a different future. You want to learn to feel differently about yourself and how you relate with others. You want to find a different way.

When your child or teen is having a tough time, all you want is for them to feel better. You want them to feel happier, calmer, and able to manage whatever life throws at them. You need a therapist who understands your unique child as well as the challenges you face as a parent, who can teach important skills with humor, patience, and compassion to help your child cope with big emotions now and in the future. If you are concerned that your child has a learning disability or autism, I offer assessment that focuses on their strengths and how to support them in all environments.
