I enjoy working with people who want to have a richer and more satisfying life and are willing to take emotional risks in order to be happier. I recognize how easily we can become stuck in old habits of thought and behavior that limit our lives. Therapy is a wonderful process for change. You can expect from me respect, an ability to deeply understand you, and the experience and knowledge to help you change the things in your life that are causing you problems. I'm trained in psychodynamic, Gestalt, EMDR, family systems, cognitive behavioral, marital and art therapies.

I work with adults, teen-agers and older children and understand the developmental tasks and challenges we face at each stage of our life. Though our individual situations may appear quite unique, in fact, the underlying processes of emotional disturbance and emotional health are the same for all of us.

I am a practitioner of Qi Gong and meditation and encourage your development of deep relaxation and meditation skills. I encourage the development of your creativity, and I will help you take risks to make the changes you want in your life.
