"I consider it a privilege to work with you to explore aspects of your life experience which have diminished your satisfaction with life or otherwise left you feeling lost or alone. Challenges around loss, aging, illness, trauma or relationships can feel too frightening to tackle alone. As a seasoned and compassionate psychotherapist, I can help you bear and work with what may feel unbearable. Together, we will create a protected space that fosters the trust, aliveness and self-expression that are essential to growth and success in love and work, where you can ultimately reclaim your life and joie-de-vivre."

"I'm a "seasoned" psychologist in practice for 40 years. I enjoy working with people from diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds and have always preferred having a "general practice" which allows addressing a wide range of personal concerns. While each individual requires a unique approach; the transformative power of therapy is rooted in the trusting relationship that evolves between you & I. It's the alliance between us which helps you become the person you aspire to be. The work is serious but also allows for having a bit of fun while seeking the most gratifying life to foster a sense of fulfilling purpose for yourself. "

"Do you always put yourself last? Is it so hard to be yourself around other people, that you disappear in relationships, avoid them altogether, or settle for less than you deserve? Do you get easily overwhelmed by your emotions, or have trouble knowing what you feel?

"Do you feel trapped by your past and anxious about your future, unable to live in the present? This malaise of modern living is often a sign of past trauma. I can help you uncover the experiences that keep you from living a full and zestful life. My primary focus is with women and parents, particularly those with a history of trauma. In therapy you'll explore the feelings that arise in your body, and notice their links to negative thoughts. You can choose a new and more positive narrative, to look at your life through a different lens."

"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."

I work from a growth model that helps you access your own wisdom and make a commitment to change. My background in the arts and Jungian psychology attunes me to the dreams and imagery that can inform you about your life course, but I also help you bring these dreams into action.

"JUNGIAN-ORIENTED, WITH EMDR. I have an engaged, relational approach, grounded in modern research on the brain, trauma and attachment. I believe the goal of therapy is to realistically become who you truly are--not to fix you, or tell you how to be. If you work with me, we'll look at your personal, family and cultural history, and the beliefs you hold about yourself and the world. Where we find traumas, disturbing memories, negative beliefs and uncomfortable feelings, we can use a variety of methods to loosen then, learn from them and heal them, including SE and EMDR."

"Welcome! I offer short-term and long-term models of psychotherapy for individual adults of all ages and walks of life. I work with a wide range of people who come to therapy for different reasons wether it be symptoms of mood dysregulation such as anxiety or depression, issues related childhood or adult trauma, relationship challenges, dealing with a chronic health condition, a major loss or life transition, or wether it is simply for personal growth and healing. Regardless of the reason that calls a person to seek therapeutic support, my over 15 years of clinical experience have taught me that the heart of the process that unfolds in psychotherapy can be boiled down to a few key principles that apply to most peoples journey of gaining a better degree of psychological wholeness and health. My integrative approach to psychotherapy draws from a number of different schools of thought in the field including classical psychoanalytic/psychodynamic theory, humanistic psychology, Jungian archetypal psychology, CBT/mindfulness based practices, and solution focused therapy.
