About

I am a Licensed Marriage, Family.and Child Therapist who has practiced for over 25 years. I treat the whole person as a unique interaction of mind, body and spirit. I honor therapy as a way to heal the upsets and traumatic wounds that keep us from feeling at peace with ourselves and others. I see people as parts of family systems that can create healthy relationships or problematic ones. I help families and couples change generational patterns and beliefs to be more supportive of their love and of empathic communication. I also specialize in treating Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
I have advanced post-graduate training and extensive experience in treating survivors of sexual abuse, domestic violence, and alcoholic/addictive families. The goal of this recovery/grieving process is to move beyond the pain and just surviving the trauma to freeing up the joy of thriving in living life. I am a trained EMDR therapist.
I enjoy working with parents and doing play therapy with children who have endured losses including abuse, neglect, divorce, death, and chronic illness. While these are my specialties, I am open to treating anyone who yearns to be all that they can be in a more balanced and fulfilling way.
