Feeling overwhelmed? Seeing personal patterns that just don't work? Stuck with a problem that won't go away? If you notice that you aren't being, doing, or having what you want in the world it can often help to explore why, once and for all. With seasoned expertise and tools that work, I help individuals and couples understand how thoughts and feelings impact behaviors and relationships, and how learning new approaches to old problems creates the change you want.

People need to feel safe in my office in order to make successful life changes. I don't rush the change process but act as a facilitator of personal growth.

While some types of therapy focus on analyzing the endless stories that run through your head, I believe it is the mind’s connection to the body that is key to uncovering and processing the emotional blocks to true change. You may have glimpsed this integrated state -- watching the sunset at the beach or doing yoga. In our mind and bodily senses, we slow down and actually experience life.

Most of my clients are women between the ages of 18-65 needing a safe and nurturing place to deeply relax and feel what needs to be felt, speak what needs to be spoken and hear & trust the guidance that comes through her body's wisdom. Clients experience enough spaciousness to get wisdom and relief around feeling stuck, disconnected, anxious, depressed, confused, hopeless, PTSD or like a victim of circumstances. Many have deep mother-father-ancestral wounds around shame, guilt, abandonment, self-care, self-image, approval, protection, power, self-expression and self-worth.

I work best with clients who are looking for a safe and caring therapy relationship in order to pursue goals that have previously seemed too difficult to achieve alone. These goals typically range from wanting to experience life more fully, including a fuller range of emotions, to having more rewarding relationships and more fulfilling work lives. I have been practicing psychotherapy for 33 years, have been teaching it for almost as long, and feel comfortable assisting with a very wide range of issues, including depression, anxiety, parenting challenges and other relationship and family conflicts.

You are a woman and worried all the time as your mind is consumed with a million things. You look at others and wonder how they do it all because you feel like you are failing. You are feeling lost and like you are a fraud. You never ask for anything even with your partner whom you love. It's hard to trust people and let them in to support you. But you want more attention and warmth in your relationships. You want things at home and work to feel healthy and fair instead of struggling over petty things. But every time you try to sort out what you want, your mind can't stop and what used to help you no longer is working.

I specialize in working with children (including play therapy), teens, families and adults. One of the best things about being a therapist is being a part of a person's growth and development. I work from a strength based model, building on your "best" self while also identifying barriers to change and working through them. I find that people learn differently, and adjust my approach based on what works best for you.
