"I have been practicing psychotherapy for close to 40 years. I am an active therapist, committed to staying deeply engaged in our moment-to-moment exchange. I am willing and able to go to the depths of a client's experience, allowing her/him to release tangled feelings and break open psychological knots. With guided imagery, EMDR, the Flash Technique (for trauma), and EFT, I help people access and make use of the expansive and healing capacities of the unconscious mind. I am also skilled in working pragmatically, helping people communicate better, shift habits of negative thinking, and solve troubling life concerns."

"I treat adults as well as adolescents and children, most frequently through individual therapy. I also work with couples. I work with people with a wide range of problems and especially enjoy working with people experiencing anxiety in relationships or at work . I also enjoy working with people who are unhappy and don't know why, and people who are repeating self-defeating patterns they feel unable to change. Meeting with a well-trained and experienced therapist can be a powerful and effective way of strengthening one's confidence and developing a personal sense of control over one's life."

"I believe creating a secure, trusting and meaningful relationship is the basis for opening the door to change in our lives. Life can be hard. Whether it be stress from relationships, work, parenting (sometimes all of the above!) and life changes, we all deserve a space where we feel heard, valued and seen. This allows us to process what happened, whats happening now, and how to move forward. Sometimes this involves reflecting on our past hurts and learning new coping skills, other times the change comes from simply having the space to process how we feel today in a compassionate and non-judemental way.

"Stepping into therapy with someone is an inherently risky process. You are courageously opening up to someone that you don't really know, in hopes of changing, of finding something new, of building a relationship that can create positive change. I respect those who take the leap and I get the importance that you find the right therapist so that you can be understood at a deep level and begin looking more closely at the places in your life that you would like to see change."

If you have experienced trauma, whether recurring or as an isolated incident, even the typical stresses of a normal day can provoke anxiety, fear, anger, or withdrawal. Luckily, therapy can provide you tools to deal with life's challenges, enabling you to minimize your stress levels and continue your personal growth. I will guide you to increased happiness and well-being by supporting you in exploring and enacting lasting, positive changes in your relationships with others, and most importantly, with yourself."

Asking for help is often a powerful step of surrendering the ego's attempts to resist change. Symptoms are often a sign that something is trying to wake up inside of you.
