About

Working with adults and teens, my experience is largely with mood and anxiety disorders (particularly Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder). This includes work with people at all stages of recovery from substance abuse and with survivors of sexual abuse. I partner with physicians in helping people live well with chronic pain or chronic medical conditions. I also have expertise in family work - helping people to negotiate the challenges of divorce and remarriage, and enhancing the lives of intercultural and interracial families. My approach is grounded in cognitive-behavioral, family systems, and attachment theories.
I offer a mindfulness-based approach which includes attention to the interplay of thought, emotion, body, and spirit. I have been practicing Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) since 1998 and have seen many clients benefit from it. I also offer sensorimotor interventions and Lifespan Integration.
I keep abreast of the developments in trauma therapy, making sure that I am familiar with the latest findings in neuroscience and in evolving practices such as Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.
