I have a background in a number of disciplines and have successfully treated clients using Hypnotherapy, Gestalt Therapy, Voice Dialogue and Art Therapy. I also incorporate the basic principles of Zen-Buddhism, which I have studied and practiced for a number of years. Being an ex-addict, I'm comfortable with the addictive personality and I have a comprehensive knowledge of the 12-step programs. I have experience coordinating with social workers and psychiatrists. While interning I worked at an adolescent group home which proves useful in treating children and adolescents.

In addition to Somatics, I use Internal Family Systems, Attachment-based, Mindfulness, Psychodynamic, DBT, and Gestalt approaches to offer the most therapeutic benefits.
*I am currently full and not accepting clients at this time*. I use a mind-body integrative approach to help you gain insight into how your mind, emotions, and body all play a part in your health and well-being. By helping you develop bodily awareness and somatic coping tools, I assist you to better navigate and manage difficult emotions, anxiety, depression and overwhelm. This approach combined with mindfully managing negative thoughts and unwanted behaviors, offers a well-balanced treatment of the whole person.

I am also a certified Gestalt Therapist with Children and Adolescents and a Registered Play Therapist.
A person comes to therapy when their present ways of being in relationship, or in the world, no longer seem to hold the meaning they once did. My aim is to support you in creating a new foundation of hope, purpose, and meaning in your life. I help people seek wholeness through the integration of mind, body, and soul, thus expanding their current level of understanding, and in so doing, creating the capacity to live more meaningfully.

My training in meditation, dream work, body awareness, Buddhist studies, Gestalt and other trainings allows me to address my client's needs directly, giving them methods and experiences to apply to their daily lives.
Clients often come to me during a deep life transition of some kind. They are looking for clarity and deeper meaning. They are motivated, and sometimes afraid to change. Issues of grief and death, relationship, career change, loss or aging often show up; a sense of "Who am I? What next? Where am I going? Where have I been?" Many times clients are looking for deeper spiritual awareness, either wanting to renew abandoned practices, or looking for something beyond their past experience. In each case they are looking to connect more directly with life and find methods to do so. They are looking for greater balance, peace and stability.

Relationships are complex & it may be time to explore how you’ve been impacted by past unhealthy relationships. You may feel as if you’re not enough, a bother or annoyance to your family or others. Often seeking acceptance from the others even though you know it may not happen. The struggle one has towards being accepted by family/others in order to feel as if you are good enough can often feel unbearable or never ending. Survivors of past damaged relations can make one feel as if you have no worth or value & leave you struggling to identify your worth & seek approval from others. You are not alone in these thoughts & feelings.

Therapy must be purposeful to improve the quality of life. To improve our relationships, our own psychological and emotional wellbeing. It takes place in an environment that is safe and supportive. It takes place with a therapist who is genuine, sensitive and skillful. When you enter therapy with me I bring all of my education and experience to share with you. I also bring a measure of humility and open mindedness that 38 years of private practice has taught me. I've learned as much from the people I see as, I hope, they have learned from me.

For over 30 years I have had the honor of working with individuals, couples, and families. My ideal client are ages 18 years of age through late-adulthood. They are seeking a safe place to talk about current issues in their lives. Many are going through a life transition such as attending college, starting a new job, going thru a separation or divorce, loss through death, etc. My goal is to join you as a guest "on your path" as you discover your inner resources, set personal goals, develop coping and communication skills. I enjoy supporting women as they navigate life's currents and flourishing as they grow older!

Are you less than satisfied with who you've become and the life you're living? Many of us struggle with acceptance and love for our bodies and are unsure how to make peace with ourselves and plot a positive path forward. I believe therapy is a collaboration where I meet you wherever you are and we become partners on the path toward your best self. Because mental and emotional distress happens in relationship, we begin with the most important relationship you will ever have – the one with yourself. The way in which we treat ourselves directly correlates with how we show up in the world and connect with others.

Life is a continuing journey of growth and change. How we handle that growth and change will determine how successful we are in navigating relationships, careers, personal development, and obstacles that we come across in our daily lives. Oftentimes it is difficult to process everything going on in life when you're at the center of it, even when things are going well! Therapy is a resource to help process everything that make us who we are, the good and bad: depression, anxiety, self-confidence, trauma, identity discovery, toxic relationships, aimlessness, conflict with peers/family, career development, loss/grief, and much more.

You are thinking about your situation and cannot seem to make sense of it. You keep repeating the same train of thought, but you continue to be stuck in a rut. You want to change the way you see your situation; you are sure there is something you are missing, but you just can’t put your finger on it. You’ve talked to friends and family about what is going on, and you have been in therapy before, but you still can’t get past what is bothering you.
