I have extensive training in healing trauma through EMDR, Mindfulness-based somatic therapy, radical candor and humor.
Life can lead us down some pretty confusing paths sometimes, leaving us feeling crazy, unsettled, and totally lost. You don't have to feel like this forever. I work with individuals, couples, and teens who are really going through it - anxiety, panic and stress, relationship issues, PTSD , and unresolved issues that continue to impact current life. Many of my clients are insightful, curious, growth-oriented people who are seeking something beyond traditional therapy. My focus is on helping you to *UN*learn all the crap you've taken on over the years that is weighing you down and freeing up whatever it is that seems to be stuck.

I am trained in Family Therapy and although not always the case, therapy often moves faster when you are willing to include other family members as a part of therapy at some point. It helps me understand you in the broader context of the people that are important to you or have influence in your life. I have been married for 34 years and have three adult children so my personal experience often informs me, along with my training and the expertise I have gathered being a part of The Family Therapy Institute.

I practice a type of somatic therapy that helps people increase contact with their physical experience. Too often, we lose contact with our bodies through social conditioning or relational trauma . By working to develop somatic awareness, we can refine our emotional intelligence and thus our sense of self-agency: If you know what you feel at a gut level, you can be clearer in your discernment, and empowered to ask for and claim what you need in your life.

For over a decade I have helped people heal early life trauma & family violence, recover from addiction, manage anger/anxiety, deal with depression, live with disabilities & chronic illness, work through crises of identity & meaning, as well as navigate the grief/losses associated with major life transitions.
NOTE: Currently, my practice is limited to seeing individuals on Saturdays only. I look forward helping you find more effective ways of dealing with the conflicts and changes of everyday life. If you struggle with unhealthy coping strategies such as dependency on substances/behaviors, seem to repeat the same self-defeating patterns in relationships, have difficulty managing intense, overwhelming feelings or often feel misunderstood while trying to communicate, I can help you alter underlying patterns and develop tools that lead to enduring change.

We are born with seeds of promise and life potential. However, life also comes with experiences and emotional trauma that can damage, block or inhibit that potential. The results of which can take forms such as depression, anxiety, low self esteem, vulnerability to abuse and relationship issues etc.. These struggles can be debilitating, soul destroying and often isolating. I am British born and have been in private practice as an analytically trained Jungian Psychotherapist for over thirty years. The Jungian depth perspective seeks to get to the root cause of your suffering and help create a connection to inner resources.
