About

I work with people whose normal coping methods have collapsed. They can no longer keep intrusive thoughts, ideas, and feelings away. They anxiously attack themselves as “too” (much, needy, angry) or depressively stuck, isolated and withdrawn. Many in my practice feel like they cannot survive their feelings. In treatment we address the issues which arouse unbearable feelings of longing and a sense of having been damaged. We work together to relieve these symptoms and to resolve the repetitive patterns that come with them.
I am sensitive to the more frightening feeling states such as dread, numbness, and a persistent sense of wrongness or shame. (Especially in the area of incest trauma.) All of these are contained in session. You are invited to feel, think, remember, and say everything. All of you is welcome here.
Who you are determines how we work together.
