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.

"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.

I seek to provide a thoughtful and reflective setting where clients develop greater understanding of their problems and limitations through honest exploration of themselves, and to bolster strengths/foster growth. I provide a friendly and open atmosphere to invite sharing of whatever thought or feeling that comes up so that they can be explored, analyzed and ultimately changed if you want. I work in a collaborative way and do not necessarily see my role as an advice giver, but as a thoughtful companion in helping you find your own solutions and understanding. I use a flexible blend of clinical techniques and theories.

I work with OCD/Anxiety, Trauma, Grief/Loss, End of Life and Couples. In collaboration with an MD, I offer Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP), which can expedite results beyond what is possible in talk therapy alone. KAP brings shifts in perspective that can be anchored and implemented towards lasting change. If you are struggling with difficult thoughts, memories, sense of self, life choices, or relationships and standard psychotherapy hasn't helped as you'd hoped for, this might be a better option for you. At this time I am accepting clients interested in KAP and also those with Severe anxiety or OCD (w or w/o interest in KAP).

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.

If you are feeling disconnected or wanting to learn how to more deeply connect to yourself or those you are in relationship with, therapy can be a place to learn a different way of relating. I see therapy as a collaborative place for you to grow in the direction that you want and to reset your vitality. I have a strength in working with: couples who want to nurture their bond or need relational resources; people who want more emotional strength and capacity for intimacy; people dealing with the impacts of sexual trauma; people who want to grow relational skills.

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.
