In my 30+ years practicing psychotherapy, I have had extensive experience working with adults who are trying to adjust to the problems that life presents to us---a difficult childhood, trauma, anxiety, depression, postpartum depression, stress, working with a child who has a difficult mental illness, sexual abuse ,couples' relationship struggles (heterosexual, gay, and lesbian), and grief from the loss of someone treasured. Always my treatment goal is to facilitate the improvement in the quality of life for each individual and to look for the creative aspect within the destruction. Healing is a natural process, but sometimes it is difficult to remember that fact.

I have extensive experience in treating survivors of sexual assault , children with complex trauma, and those struggling with addiction, anxiety and depression.
I believe every individual has the power to heal, grow and find resolution. My role as a therapist to meet you and offer deep listening and reflection as a way to spark new perspectives and insights for approaching inner and outer struggles. In therapy, challenges can often be a doorway into finding new sources of strength and new ways to nourish oneself. My approach is to work with you in bringing your inner experience to the surface so there can be a greater awareness of what is happening for you. so you can gain deeper insight and overcome life's challenges.

My areas of expertise include relationship conflicts, parenting, body image issues, bereavement, survivors of physical and sexual abuse , and postpartum depression.
As we go through life, we all develop particular patterns for dealing with challenges. Though some of these patterns are helpful, others actually get in the way of reaching our goals. Sometimes we're not even aware that what we're doing may be sabotaging our happiness and success. In therapy, I will give you direct feedback which will illuminate these problematic patterns. This will help you understand how to overcome obstacles, and find deeper satisfaction in your life. As a therapist with over 20 years experience, I have helped many people work through depression and anxiety and move towards success.

Therapy is most successful when the work is done carefully and thoughtfully through a process of unfolding and bringing into light those parts of ourselves which have been hidden or misunderstood. It's a collaboration that includes tapping into your own wisdom while also considering new perspectives. We do this work with the utmost compassion and consideration for what is needed in each moment to produce the best possible long term outcome. There will be many new insights which lead to more satisfaction and a deeper understanding. It's my privilege to work with you as we take these steps together toward a higher quality of life.

Welcome to my practice. Some folks I work with have clearly defined concerns they bring in, such as depression or anxiety, relationship issues, grief, or persistent somatic pains that may have a psychological component. Others have just a vague feeling that something isn’t right, or may wonder if life could feel any better than it always has.

"Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate."- Dr. Carl Jung. I am a clinical psychologist who has been in practice for 17 years working with men and women who have diverse backgrounds and experiences. My therapeutic style is warm, supportive and encouraging. I believe growth occurs when we learn to understand why we are struggling. Yet struggling alone can lead to feeling overwhelmed, lost, and stuck. Turning to someone for support and guidance often leads to self-awareness, clarity, direction and empowerment.

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 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.

With over 30 years experience, my approach is holistic integrating the connection between mind, body, heart and spirit. Certified in EMDR therapy by the EMDR International Association, I find EMDR to be a powerful tool that I use along with other treatment modalities to facilitate healing. I specialize in working with trauma, eating disorders, addiction recovery, grief, depression, anxiety and relationship issues. I especially work with clients who have trust and abandonment issues due to childhood trauma, neglect or abusive parents. Early dysfunctional family patterns and lack of nurturing can affect self-esteem, intimate relationships and work performance.
