I have additional training in Gestalt Therapy, Stress Management, CBT/DBT and EMDR.
I am interested in seeing anyone who needs help with major life transitions or who is in the midst of a life crisis. I also encourage people who are not in crisis but interested in improving the quality of their life and to enhance their overall well being. Besides being in private practice I have also worked in inpatient and outpatient psychiatric settings. I believe in using an eclectic approach, with a multitude of modalities, to help people, in a safe setting, clarify their issues, gain greater insight and assist them in finding their own solutions and coping skills. Most of my clients report feeling better in a short time.

Aside from traditional talk therapy, I am trained in using Voice Dialogue, NARM, TF-CBT, dream work, Gestalt Therapy, and mindfulness.
Nobody’s childhood dream was to grow up and feel overwhelmed, alone, stuck or unworthy. I aim to help individuals heal from trauma-related issues such as anxiety, depression, and relationship/family issues. If you find yourself living without a navigation system to understand emotional terrain or trauma that impacts your well-being; you are not alone. All of us go through rough patches in our lives. My approach is specific to meet your unique needs in a safe and non-judgemental space.

My work is founded in attachment and developmental theory, and primary treatment approaches include Gestalt , Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), projective and expressive art therapy, and sand tray.
Are you seeking help for a child or teen who is struggling emotionally, displaying challenging behaviors, experiencing difficulties in school or in personal relationships? I have over 30 years experience treating children exposed to trauma, whether from family conflict, divorce, exposure to violence, bullying, alienation, accidental injury, or abuse. When children experience trauma, they can become detached from their bodies, numbed to emotion, and stuck in repetitive trauma memories. The work (and play) of therapy is to assist them in reconnecting to those parts of their Self that have "shut down" so that the process of healing can begin.

My practice orientation with clients integrates the power of our mind-body-spirit connection toward healing wounded areas within ourselves. I specifically help individuals that have been victims of narcissistic abuse in their early childhood relationships or current adult relationships heal this very real trauma to their minds and bodies. Focus is toward strengthening adaptive, rational and positive thoughts and behaviors instead of living from fear and trauma. Narcissism undermines growth, strength, health and productive ways of living. Meditation, creative visualization/affirmation skills, breathing exercises, role-playing, voice-dialogue and gestalt methods are employed for moving stagnant energy in our bodies. .

I use a creative approach that integrates EMDR, relational Gestalt therapy, with somatic, mindfulness and creative techniques to generate healing in both the mind and body.
Whatever you were feeling before this pandemic is now amplified. You are working hard to be fulfilled at work and in your relationships. You are wondering why it doesn't feel like enough and try harder. You worry that the difficult things that have happened to you might always hold you back. Uncomfortable emotions crop up--anxiety, sadness, hurt, shame and anger. There is self-criticism and blame. Your relationships suffer. Unhealthy choices are made. You wonder if talking about it is going to make a difference. You are ready to do the work, but you want to get past the surface because, in your heart, you know you deserve more.

I work from a relational gestalt approach in that building a strong therapeutic alliance and increasing my clients' self-awareness through body-focused techniques are overarching goals of therapy.
I offer a space for individuals who are struggling to feel seen and heard. Showing up for yourself isn’t always easy – especially for folx who are caring for others. People view you as the “strong and reliable one” or someone who “has it together”. You’re doing the best you can, but you find yourself feeling drained. Even if you’re setting aside time for self-care, you may not feel rested or refreshed. This might show up as a feeling of disconnection from yourself, your community, or your work.
