I believe there is goodness, beauty, and incredible value at the core of every individual, as well as opportunities for change. I specialize in working with individuals navigating work/life/family balance, older adults, sleep issues, teen girls, cancer patients, fertility/pregnancy, significant illness, and bereavement. A strong value I have is developing a meaningful relationship with my clients built on security, respect, compassion, and healing. It is also critical to develop goals that are important to you and ensuring you feel heard and your needs in treatment are being met.

Being a cancer survivor, I have strong tenderness and empathy for chronically ill clients or those with chronic pain.
Life can be so challenging - bills, relationships, health, children. Oftentimes, it is natural to need help, and therapy can be just what you need to get refocused, increase your stamina and well-being, or simply live your life more richly and joyfully. I have been through my share of challenges, and am so thrilled when I am able to help another navigate and feel better! I mix my clinical skills with my compassion, empathy and personal experience to give clients a professional package that is real, rich and therapeutically sound.

I am also a breast cancer survivor.
My clients over the past 20 years have found me to be warm, collaborative, authentic, active, non-judgmental, calm and grounding. I believe in the therapeutic value of our relationship, while using evidence-based treatment modalities such as CBT and CPT to reduce symptoms. My approach is trauma-informed and incorporates humanistic psychology and mindfulness to improve your relationship with yourself and others. In my practice I have treated a wide variety of challenges, including mood disorders, PTSD, gender and identity issues, postpartum depression, relationship issues, addictions, and the psychosocial impact of health problems.

Loneliness is a trickster. It can disguise itself as depression or anxiety. It can get us to sabotage our relationships and jobs, make unwise decisions, neglect our health, turn to substances or food, lose faith in the future. It can decimate our self-esteem, without which we cannot give to others. Maybe once it was loss, grief, trauma, betrayal, being at the top, illness, misfortune, being different, oppression, distance, or age. But now, maybe it's loneliness. And with the requirements of Sheltering In Place and Social Distancing during COVID19, loneliness has become a heightened risk for all of us.

Making that first call to a therapist can be frightening. Feelings of pride embarrassment, shame and or financial issues can get in the way of living a more fulfilled life. My focus is to provide a welcoming and safe environment and to lend support to couples, individuals and families who are facing life's many challenges. My specialty is in working with couples and relationships. I strongly believe that providing an opportunity for one to experience intense emotions along with the ability to communicate these feelings in a non destructive and respectful mannor is the first step in healing and strengthening a relationship.

It’s easy to feel overwhelmed with life, incongruent with who you are and who you want to be, have doubts about your ability to change that which you want to change, transition from a known place to the unknown…. Sometimes you just need someone to talk with and sort out your thoughts and feelings. Someone to help you better understand what motivates or hinders you. Someone who will teach you new skills to manage the feelings that seem unmanageable, or behavior that no longer serves you.

Therapy is most effective as a collaborative process in which your needs and desires for growth are prioritized. The foundation of my approach to therapy stems from the wholehearted belief that our bodyminds, those seemingly interminable knots of body and psyche, are orientated towards liberation. As much as we may desire freedom from those things that provoke suffering in our lives, we also desire the freedom to imagine new futures.

I enjoy working with couples. The areas of upset often are a map, pointing us to possibilities of potential growth. Your difficulties can become a catalyst for increased intimacy. It's easy for any couple to get off track in efforts to communicate - slipping into blaming or power struggles, rather than your true communications, which can bring you closer and into deeper intimacy and trust. My job is to work together with you to help you develop skills that help reclaim happiness - communication skills, skills in understanding yourself and your partner, skills for building and rebuilding the life you want .

I believe in the Existential/Humanistic school of thought and the importance of making meaning in our lives. By meeting my clients in the here-and-now, I am able to work with them where they are presently, without going too far ahead of them or getting bogged down in the past. I’m collaborative, creative, and believe in an integrated approach when working with people. No single form of therapy works for all clients, so I am comfortable using different psychotherapeutic approaches. I believe that true psychological healing comes from the experience the client has with the clinician, so the relationship itself is of great value

When I work with the pain of depression, anxiety, fear, isolation or trauma, often my clients' inclinations are to resist it, to stuff it, to pretend it's not happening or to judge themselves for these seemingly intrusive feelings. What if these emotions are surfacing because your mind and body wisdom are giving you the signal, through these experiences that your attentiveness and compassion are being requested? I believe that emotions arise to move through and to assist us in growth and well-being. They contain important messages of wholeness. It is a privilege to witness your unique expression as an individual.

I understand that human beings are multifaceted. It can be hard to understand why you think and behave the way you do. You may experience conflicting feelings that lead you in circles or undermine your deepest wishes or goals. You may also be grappling with loss, life transition, family conflict, and the end of a relationship. You may struggle with a new role as a step-parent or new spouse. Life events and transitions can be disruptive and confusing. In therapy, we discover that challenging times lead us to grow into ourselves more fully and authentically.

Whatever I have to say about myself, our work is about you! It's about you having a safe, contained, confidential relationship with me. It's about you bringing your concerns for our consideration. I've been in private practice for more than fifty years as a Jungian analyst. I work primarily with individuals. In addition to working with conscious relational material, I have been trained to work with unconscious material, dreams, daydreams, symptoms of all kinds to identify patterns that are not working and to discover with you new possibilities.

I want your body to feel like a home. When we experience overwhelm, trauma, and loss, our experience in our bodies and minds can feel unpredictable, scary, or foreign. I offer therapy that aims to collaborate with you to restore an inner sense of safety, peace and agency. I believe therapy is about creating enough safety to stretch beyond what is familiar into a place of thriving. I will assist you to identify and change any trauma-related patterns and beliefs that constrict your ability to live fully, and help you to develop your capacity for self-compassion and acceptance.

Even the children of dedicated, responsible parents can develop behavioral or emotional problems as they move through childhood and adolescence. Sometimes the acting out or other worrisome behaviors occur only at home. Other times, the difficulties erupt at school. Or both. Perhaps what you or the school has tried isn't working. You may be blaming yourself even though it is not your fault. At these times, an experienced child therapist can help you and your family get back on track.
