I have worked extensively with women with cancer, and people going through divorce, retirement, death of a partner, and most of life's various provocations which cause pain to the soul, all "traumas" in their own right.
I consider it a privilege to work with you to explore aspects of your life experience which have diminished your satisfaction with life or otherwise left you feeling lost or alone. Challenges around loss, aging, illness, trauma or relationships can feel too frightening to tackle alone. As a seasoned and compassionate psychotherapist, I can help you bear and work with what may feel unbearable. Together, we will create a protected space that fosters the trust, aliveness and self-expression that are essential to growth and success in love and work, where you can ultimately reclaim your life and joie-de-vivre.

I also treasure the work I have done supporting cancer patients/survivors and their families.
In my twenty years as a school psychologist, I have seen students navigate multiple stressors but none more complex than in today's society. Stress can stem from learning and executive functioning challenges, communication problems in relationships, academic pressures, substance use, coming out, medical diagnoses, screen time/social media or managing involvement in special education programs. With my young clients and their parents, my initial goal is to offer a safe, non-judgemental space for understanding a person's family dynamics, academic environment, social challenges and ever-shifting emotions. Call for free consult.

Cancer patients and their loved ones.
You may long to live wholeheartedly - and to feel loved and connected - but struggle with anger, depression, loneliness, or inexplicable sadness and anxiety. You may find the stress of work, life, running a household, or parenting has diminished your capacity to feel joy and be creative. Once a source of comfort and pleasure, your intimate relationship may now be disappointing, frustrating, or even deadening. Therapy can help relieve the symptoms of debilitating feelings by uncovering the underlying (and sometimes unconscious) causes, and empower individuals - and couples - to become the authors of the lives they want to live.

Sometimes the coping strategies that we use no longer work for us. And the usual support systems we turn to, are at times just not enough. Therapy can be an added support to help us figure out new strategies to cope with the challenges and times of transition in our lives. I provide a calm and reflective space, where together we will reach a deeper understanding of what holds you back and what changes you need to make to live your life more fully. Some areas of specialization include women's issues, perinatal and postnatal disorders, early parenting and cancer.

Are you feeling depressed, anxious, struggling with relationship conflict or substances? Sometimes, the very strategies we use to feel safe, to belong, to get approval, and to feel loved – to survive – no longer serve us. When we try to carry these strategies into adulthood, it can lead to high conflict, challenging behaviors, anxiety, depression, and substance use. For couples and families, I work from an Emotion Focused Therapy approach exploring clients' reactivity, triggers, and hurts that underlie conflict and helping them find other ways to respond that lead to more trust, intimacy and connectedness.
