"My approach to psychotherapy is holistic. I not only treat the "tip of the iceberg" problems, but also address the deeper, "bottom of the ocean," issues. I treat the whole person and honor the mind-body-spirit connections, taking into account the client's cultural, religious and ethnic background, ancestry, race and immigration history. I recognize the complexity of each person's history and circumstances and employ a wide variety of techniques to guide my clients in their self-discovery."

"Chances are you feel some dissatisfaction with the things or people in your life. Maybe you feel overwhelmed and stuck, but if you've made it here to my page, you likely have some ideas about what things you'd like to be different. Therapy, like most of life, requires discipline and responsibility. I can help you make the necessary contact with parts of yourself that influence the way you think, feel and act. In our sessions I will help you discover in a more full way what might be holding you back from having the life you want. We will explore your thoughts and feelings in the moment, which can lead to profound healing and change."

"Many who seek therapy are the most psychologically healthy in their relationships or family. This is especially true for those in relationship to a narcissistically abusive partner or parent - both past or present. I specialize in helping such people recover their self-worth after narcissistic abuse. We work in therapy to identify and free you from the underlying beliefs that can seep in as a victim of such abuse. For example, you get to find out that your needs are as important as others and that you deserve protection in relationships. Common symptoms of such abuse also get addressed - like anxiety or depression."

For example, when we move more deeply into our awareness of our bodies and our breath, we can experience a shift in our way of thinking about ourselves, our world, and our relationship to one another. Likewise, through a deeper understanding of how our mind works, we find ourselves moving deeper into our bodies and experiencing more flexibility, balance, strength and well-being."

This difference between the perception of you and your felt reality can bring about feelings of isolation, sadness and stress. It is often through examining how our thoughts, feelings and behaviors are linked that positive changes can start to be made.
